Hannes Snellman acted as counsel to AB Nordiska Kompaniet (NK) in its digitalisation project and launch of an e-commerce platform. The luxurious NK department stores in Stockholm and Gothenburg have represented the leading premium brands for more than 100 years. The e-commerce platform will enable NK to continue to provide its customers with a first-class experience in the digital era based on the same vision as when NK opened its doors in 1915 – being a commercial and cultural theatre. NK is owned by Hufvudstaden, one of Sweden's largest listed property companies. 

Hannes Snellman has drafted and negotiated the e-commerce platform agreement to onboard the retailers and all data privacy issues. Hannes Snellman also provided juridical assistance, throughout the NK project, for the e-commerce platform, logistic services, customer service and payment solution agreements.

“The founder of NK, Josef Sachs, said: ‘The customer is the king, and the customer is the king.’ We have worked with NK under the same motto and are very proud that NK decided to trust us with the legal aspects of this historic and crucial project.” says Elisabeth Vestin, Partner and Head of Hannes Snellman’s IP & Tech team.

Hannes Snellman’s core team included Elisabeth Vestin, Anna RibenforsCaroline Sundberg, Jessica Tressfeldt, and Linn Alfredsson.
