Contracts

Most companies come into daily contact with contract issues in their operations. These may concern anything from apparently simple contracts of sale to large cooperation agreements that are preceded by extensive negotiations. We can help you with contractual negotiation, review and drafting of a wide range of contract types. In addition, we can train you in the optimum use of template and standard contracts and advise you on the considerations that govern various forms of commercial cooperation.

Our many years of experience, wide industry knowledge and high level of expertise in commercial contracts enable us to help our clients find targeted solutions to their needs and work preventively, carefully considering contracts to avoid problems in the future. We provide legal advice on all types of commercial contract, and our clients are mainly Swedish and international companies, and public authorities and organisations.

IT law and data protection

Information technology and the law associated with it affect a wide range of business areas. After a number of years of almost total confusion, legislators, courts and professors are finally beginning to get to grips with this partially new environment. It is now relatively clear which old laws are compatible with the new environment, which need to be amended and where new ones are required. This dynamic has placed and continues to place high demands on us as advisers. We have followed legal developments from the start and act for a large number of clients in various matters linked to all areas of IT law.

The lawyers in our IT law team have a genuine interest in technology. This permits us to rapidly familiarise ourselves with even complex technical contexts. We believe this to be an absolute necessity.

We regularly assist our clients with the following:

  • Hosting, support and operating contracts
  • Contracts for software development and system supplies
  • Terms of use for websites and IT services
  • Copyright and licensing matters
  • Brand matters
  • Infringement investigations and IPRED proceedings
  • Damages disputes in connection with copyright infringement
  • Domain name disputes
  • Matters relating to personal data processing
  • The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
  • E-commerce solutions
  • Manuals and policy documents
  • Lectures and training
  • Ongoing advice and support on the application of rules and contracts in day-to-day operations

It is valuable to be part of the decision-making process at clients, particularly where we have managed to build up a relationship based on mutual trust, where my clients feel that they can call me to kick ideas around. Consequently, personal contact with you, our clients, is extremely important, and not only for me. When we work towards a shared goal, it creates deeper understanding and thus better focus in the process.

Meeting many different people in a range of industries with different problems is a perk of the profession and is necessary for me to be able to do a good job. The essence of what I do is to analyse issues, scale down the less important elements and find the crux of the matter based on the law and your operations and with your assistance.

In my professional life, I have advised Swedish and foreign companies on general commercial law matters. In providing this advice, I have gained wide experience of drafting, reviewing and negotiating contracts in both Swedish and English. My role at Sigeman & Co covers a broad spectrum of commercial law, everything from complex, extensive contracts on partnerships, business transfers, etc. to regular advice on more minor matters. I have been working for many years in property and construction contract law and also have extensive experience as counsel in courts and arbitration proceedings.

I have been at Sigeman & Co since 1994, a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 1997 and a partner of the firm since 2001. I like to share my knowledge in other fora and am often engaged as a lecturer by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Southern Sweden.

Public procurement and competition law
Corporate law
Foundation law
Distribution and agency law

Law may very well be enjoyable and interesting in itself, but to a lawyer it should primarily be a tool for finding and achieving practically feasible solutions for the client, whether it be in negotiations, disputes or other circumstances. Sustainable solutions can reasonably only be found if we familiarise ourselves with you, our clients, and understand your business and reality.

My experience essentially concerns commercial law in a broad sense. My primary focus today is partly on corporate law (with regular assignments as special examiner, and as trustee or arbitrator in connection with redemption of shares), and partly on public procurement and competition law (with more than 25 years of experience of advising and assisting contracting authorities and suppliers). In the field of distribution, I work primarily on international agent and distribution contracts. I am also pleased and grateful that I am regularly engaged for advice and board positions in foundations. I give regular lectures in the above subject areas.

Internationally, I am involved in the European Law Group, a network of commercial law firms in Europe, am engaged by the EU Commission as an expert in relation to innovation procurement and I am the Swedish representative of the International Distribution Institute (IDI), an international body working in agent, distribution and franchise law.

I have been a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 1991 and co-founded Sigeman & Co later the same year.

Specialist expertise:

Commercial contract law
Infrastructure projects

I find it particularly stimulating to work on commercial projects in which I am involved from the initial stage. I am usually responsible for the preparation and drafting of the various contracts that need to be made during the project and I take part in the contractual negotiations. With my knowledge and many years of experience of the commercial contract process, I am able to help ensure that a project can be implemented as smoothly as possible for you, the client, with minimum problems.

At Sigeman & Co, I primarily work on central commercial law, with a particular focus on commercial contract law and infrastructure projects. In addition to responsibility for the parts of the process outlined above, my work also regularly involves providing advice on commercial law matters. I have worked on most types of contract that occur in the commercial law field and I have just over 30 years of experience of drafting and negotiating contracts in Swedish and English.

I have been a partner of the firm since its establishment in 1991 and a member of the Swedish Bar Association since 1990.
