The guide is used by commercial and private clients, corporate counsels, CEOs, CFOs and professional advisers.
We are also ranked by Chambers and Partners. Chambers and Parters rank prominent individuals and agencies around the world based on client analyses and interviews, with the aim of providing guidance to consumers of legal advice.

Association of European Lawyers
Glimstedt is a member of The Association of European Lawyers , which means that we collaborate with lawyers outside Sweden. This allows us to offer seamless international advice to our clients. AEL brings together leading lawyers from all over Europe with the primary goal of providing high quality advice.
The Swedish Bar Association
The purpose of The Swedish Bar Association is to maintain a high ethical and professional standard among all Swedish lawyers. This means that we must comply with The Bar Association’s regulations and statutes, as well as legislation, in particular the Swedish Code of Judicial Procedure. The Bar Association’s guidelines on good practice govern the running and administration of the business.
All employees of a law firm have a duty of loyalty and confidentiality in relation to clients, an obligation to be loyal to their client and an obligation to safeguard a client’s interests and to act only in the best interests of the client. This also entails an obligation to refuse assignments where there is a risk of conflict of interest, as well as a requirement that fees should be reasonable.
Lawyers also have a responsability to take out adequate insurance against civil liability, thus providing safety for clients. Lawyers may only promote a certain aspect of their business if they genuinely possess good expertise and experience in that particular area. Lawyers are also required to take part in continuing professional development every year in order to keep their knowledge up to date.
