Who we are
Glimstedt is one of Sweden’s largest law firms. We are a full-service corporate law firm with a unique geographic spread. In all, we have a staff of 250 at our sixteen offices in Sweden, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Around 200 of us are lawyers.
Early on we realized the importance of having close cooperation with lawyers outside Sweden. For this reason, Glimstedt has long been a member of the Association of European Lawyers. http://www.europeanlawyers.org/
What we stand for
Glimstedt clients have access to the best lawyers. That goes without saying. Our advice is focused and to the point. The solutions we provide are based on solid business insight, helping our clients to reach their respective goals.
Our keywords are:
- Legal expertise
- Business insight
We want you to feel that you can trust our advice, that we are fully committed and that we contribute something more than a mere interpretation of regulations and paragraphs. We at Glimstedt do everything we can for our clients. That is our pledge.
We at Glimstedt are known for our expertise being highly ranked in areas such as mergers and acquisitions, insolvency and real estate in The Legal 500 Series. The Legal 500 Series is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest independent legal referral guide in which law firms and individuals are recommended purely on merit whereby the most prominent lawyers are highlighted. For almost 30 years the legal sector has been annually analysed and the guide is updated based on 300,000 interviews that are carried out globally each year. The guide is used by commercial and private clients, corporate counsels, CEOs, CFOs and professional advisers.
Forefront in equality
Long ago we took up the challenge of achieving an equal gender balance in all positions at the firm. Even if we have not yet reached this goal, we have a large proportion of female partners today in comparison to the average Swedish law firm of corresponding size. This is a pole position we are proud of and strive to maintain.
Active environmental work
As far back as 2001, we established Glimstedt’s first environmental policy. Since then we have done our utmost to improve even further. Environmental issues are an integral, active part of our daily work and our Gothenburg office has held the city of Gothenburg’s environmental diploma since 2005. With green solutions in mind, we carry out continuous revision of our policies regarding purchasing of products and services, document handling, travel, transport, meetings and waste handling.
The Consumer Disputes Board
In the unlikely event that a client has a complaint they may turn to The Swedish Bar Association Consumer Disputes Board in respect of the legal service provided after first utilising our own grievance procedure. A client in this context refers to any individual who is acting for purposes which are outside his business or profession. The Consumer Disputes Board can be reached at The Swedish Bar Association, PO Box 27321, 102 54 Stockholm, or by way of the website www.advokatsamfundet.se/konsumenttvistnamnden.
