Please join me in welcoming our first international Vested Center of Excellence – Lindahl Law Firm in Sweden!
It is not only exciting because Lindahl is our first international CoE that is skilled in providing Vested coaching, consulting and legal advice to companies wanting to implement Vested, but it is also the first law firm to fully embrace the University of Tennessee’s Vested methodologies and tools.
Lindahl is the third largest law firm in Sweden and is, according to international rankings, a market leader in TMT (telecoms, media and technology), intellectual property, life science and shipping. The firm has extensive experience in writing and negotiating complex IT and BPO contracts. Recently, the Legal Alliance Summit named Lindahl the best Nordic lawfirm of 2012. Lindahl’s clients often come from knowledge-based, innovative and high-technology industries, such as Microsoft, Verizon and Hewlett-Packard.
The firm is a great complement to Vested’s four Center of Excellences – Supply Chain Vision, the Forefront Group, SPOT Consulting and J.Nyden and Company.
David Frydinger and Staffan Eklöw have also joined our Certified Deal Architect Community.
David is a lawyer and heads Lindahl’s TMT department in Stockholm. David, who also has previous experience as in-house counsel in the telecoms industry, works mainly with complex contracts and outsourcing within the telecoms and IT sectors. According to ranking institute Chambers and Partners “David is fantastic,” say clients, one of whom added: “Very rarely have I worked with such a good lawyer. Having worked as in-house counsel he sees things from both a business and legal perspective.” David has published a book with the title (translated) “The craft of business law – the work within the boundaries of contract freedom.”
Staffan is a lawyer and partner in Lindahl’s TMT practice group in Stockholm. He joined Lindahl in 1986 but took a break between 1993 and 2000 to work as General Counsel at TV4, Sweden’s leading commercial broadcaster. Media and IT law has been at the heart of Staffan’s practice since then. During the past 10 years Staffan has also served in different managerial positions within Lindahl including as Managing Partner. In Chambers Europe Staffan is ranked in the first tier in media.
