– During my entire career, Setterwalls has been a leading firm in arbitration. Setterwalls’ focus on maritime law gave the firm an early position as one of Sweden’s leading firms in international dispute resolution, and the arbitration practice has grown strongly in recent years, says Per Runeland. I cannot think of a more inspiring environment for my commercial arbitration practice, which is complemented by Setterwalls’ long experience of investment disputes.
