Transport Law Practice:
Shipping and transport are important industries in Sweden. The transport industry includes a number of types of transport which are governed by various rules, conventions and standard practice. Logistics questions are becoming increasingly important for the entire industry. Warehousing is becoming more expensive and “just in time” transport dominates. In order for the entire flow to function from factory to end user, logistics must be seamless. Many companies solve this by outsourcing, which is becoming increasingly common in the industry.
Lindahl has a strong offering within transport. The firm employs some of Sweden’s leading experts within shipping and transportation law. We advice on all matters regarding Swedish and international trade, shipping, logistics and insurance. Working closely with our experts in other legal fields, e.g. finance, M&A and procurement, we offer clients specialised legal advice on all matters potentially affecting the shipping industry.
Our clients often come from knowledge-based, innovative and high-technology industries. In addition to having the broad capacity of a large firm, we have cutting-edge competence in life sciences, IP, technology, media, telecom and litigation. We also have long and solid experience of banking and finance, capital markets, M&A and real estate.
Lindahl has extensive international experience and a well-developed global network of leading law firms. In Sweden, Lindahl has offices in Stockholm, Göteborg, Malmö, Uppsala, Örebro and Helsingborg.
Today, Lindahl has approximately 400 employees, of which two thirds are lawyers. During recent years, the firm has grown by approximately 30 employees and SEK 60 million in turnover annually. In 2013, our turnover was SEK 615 million.
