Hamilton hosted Sweden's first-ever GC Powerlist

Yesterday, Hamilton to­geth­er with Legal 500 host­ed Sweden’s first-ever GC Powerlist, the in­ter­na­tion­al­ly rec­og­nized pub­li­ca­tion that lists the 80 best gen­er­al coun­sels in their re­spec­tive coun­try. The list was pre­sent­ed dur­ing a launch re­cep­tion at Hamilton’s of­fice in Stockholm, where the guests had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to speak about fu­ture chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties for gen­er­al coun­sels.

“The im­por­tance of in-house coun­sels has in­creased in re­cent years. We be­lieve that the tal­ent of the fu­ture will need to be both in­no­v­a­tive and prag­mat­ic when they face the chal­lenges of to­mor­row. Complex reg­u­la­tions and new tech­nol­o­gy re­quire high­er abil­i­ty to de­liv­er, which is some­thing the se­lect­ed in-house coun­sels have proven to mas­ter”, Emma Berglund, Managing Partner, Hamilton said.

The list, which con­tains rep­re­sen­ta­tives from a num­ber of in­dus­tries, such as fi­nance, me­dia, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions and health­care al­so in­cor­po­rate gen­er­al coun­sels from some of Sweden’s fastest grow­ing tech com­pa­nies.

”It is fan­tas­tic to see a list with such a di­ver­si­fi­ca­tion”, Emma Berglund, concluded.

Hamilton is very proud to have had the op­por­tu­ni­ty to in­tro­duce the list to Sweden and grate­ful that Legal 500 have cho­sen us as their part­ner.
