Hamilton is the exclusive partner for the prestigious Legal 500 GC Powerlist: Sweden.

The role of General Counsel has always carried unique responsibilities. Today, it also brings huge and growing expectations. Of course, General Counsels retain their position as legal experts, but in recent years General Counsels have moved beyond a strictly legal role, taking on a commercial mind-set and contributing at length to other risk management and business activities. With many businesses evolving at exceptional speed, the role of the General Counsel has therefore become increasingly complex, and General Counsels have had to accelerate the transformation of their own roles. 

These growing expectations mean that the General Counsel is the only senior executive expected to combine legal expertise with business acumen. Boards also require General Counsels to balance risk and opportunity in a way that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago. They now not only need to protect the company from threats, but also assist in creating value on the upside. In short, the role of the General Counsel has never been more important than it is today. 

At Hamilton, we work closely with some of the best General Counsels in Sweden. We treasure these relationships as they help us build a stronger practice tailored to meet the high expectations of our clients. Also, General Counsels guide us in accelerating the transformation of our own role as external legal counsel in a rapidly changing world.   

It is with great pleasure that Hamilton, in partnership with The Legal 500, will acknowledge the excellent work of General Counsels in Sweden. 
Johannes Ericson, Managing Partner, Hamilton
