Setterwalls is one of Sweden’s leading full-service business law firms, as well as one of Sweden’s largest law firms, with some 190 lawyers servicing clients from its three offices in Sweden’s largest cities – Stockholm, Gothenburg (Göteborg) and Malmoe (Malmö). Setterwalls is an independent law firm with an extensive, well-established international network. Established in 1874, it is also Sweden’s oldest law firm.

Our Data Privacy and Data Protection legal team provides top-class expertise and strategic advice on all issues surrounding data privacy and data protection law as well as cyber-security. We are one of the leading data privacy and data protection teams in Sweden with a strong stand-alone business combined with the benefit of being part of a full-service firm.

Since Scandinavia is one of the world’s most globalised business environments, Set-terwalls is accustomed to working in multinational contexts — across linguistic and cultural boundaries. All in all, about half of Setterwalls’ client assignments originate from countries outside of Sweden, including many of the world’s leading companies and banks and other financial institutions.

Setterwalls has established a number of foreign desks — the China desk, the French desk, and the German desk — to meet clients’ demand for truly international exper-tise and legal advice. Each desk consists of a group of lawyers combining legal spe-cialist expertise with linguistic skills. They also have a deep understanding of the business culture and legal system of China, France, and Germany respectively.
