Hannes Snellman’s Stockholm Office is Expanding

1 June 2018

Mattias Friberg, a leading expert within public company law, joins Hannes Snellman as Partner and Head of Public M&A and Equity Capital Markets department in Sweden. In addition to Mattias, another two Partners active in the field of Dispute Resolution, will join Hannes Snellman in the course of the year, together with a large number of associates with extensive and varied experience.

Mattias has previously worked as Partner and Head of Public M&A at Roschier, and has additionally held positions at Vinge and Davis Polk & Wardwell. Mattias has gained over 20 years’ of public bid experience within Nordic and international M&A, and further specialises in equity capital markets, compliance and regulatory matters, as well as strategic corporate advice.

- Hannes Snellman is a leading law firm with a highly experienced and competent team. The Finnish-Swedish combination gives the firm a valuable international advantage. With a continued high tempo on the transactional market, I look forward to leading the Public M&A and ECM team in Stockholm and to developing Hannes Snellman’s scope in the area, says Mattias Friberg.

- We continue to see a growth of public transactions and an increased demand for M&A advice.

There are only few Public M&A lawyers with such broad experience and expertise as Mattias Friberg and the recruitment of Mattias is a significant addition to our team and to our position in the Nordic market. We have had an intense spring and are recruiting heavily in several workgroups right now, including three Partner Recruits. Unfortunately, we cannot name the other two yet since we do not yet know when they can start but will get back on that, says Paula Röttorp, Managing Partner at Hannes Snellman’s Stockholm office.

- The strengthening of our resources by high-profile lateral hires such as Mattias forms an important part of our investments in the growth of our Stockholm office. There is an increasing demand from clients for cross-border teams and experience in all our core business areas, says Johan Aalto, Senior Partner.  

Mattias takes office on June 1, 2018.
