Hamilton – host of Sweden's first-ever GC Powerlist

Hamilton to­geth­er with The Legal 500 an­nounced to­day Sweden’s first-ever edi­tion of the  GC Powerlist, rec­og­niz­ing the most in­no­v­a­tive and in­stru­men­tal in-house coun­sels across  the coun­try. A launch re­cep­tion was held on 20 September at Hamilton in Stockholm to  an­nounce the se­lect­ed gen­er­al coun­sels. Hamilton is proud to have been cho­sen as  part­ner for the Swedish launch.

On 20 September, Hamilton host­ed the first The Legal 500 GC Powerlist in Sweden’s his­to­ry, pre­sent­ing the most in­flu­en­tial gen­er­al coun­sels (GCs) across the coun­try. Following a sub­stan­tial se­lec­tion process, 80 GCs were pre­sent­ed dur­ing a re­cep­tion at Hamilton’s of­fice in Stockholm.

“We are very proud, to­geth­er with The Legal 500, to launch the first edi­tion of the Swedish GC Powerlist. With its im­pres­sive his­to­ry, the rank­ing has proved to be an im­por­tant in­stru­ment in ac­knowl­edg­ing the gen­er­al coun­sels who are dri­ving the le­gal busi­ness of to­mor­row. It is a great plea­sure for Hamilton to have been part of this ex­cit­ing work”, said Emma Berglund, Managing Partner at Hamilton.

The GC Powerlist, de­vel­oped by the lead­ing le­gal pub­lish­er The Legal 500 is a se­ries of pub­li­ca­tions high­light­ing the most in­flu­en­tial in-house lawyers in the busi­ness com­mu­ni­ty. Although it has pre­vi­ous­ly been held among Nordic peers, the re­cep­tion marked the in­au­gur­al edi­tion of the GC Powerlist in Sweden.

“We are de­light­ed to be work­ing with Hamilton as our part­ner for the in­au­gur­al GC Powerlist Sweden, and we are grate­ful for their spon­sor­ship. We al­ways strive to part­ner up with high qual­i­ty firms in each ju­ris­dic­tion. Hamilton was an ob­vi­ous choice in this re­gard”, David Goulthorpe, Managing Director of  The Legal 500 com­ment­ed.

The list was es­tab­lished to high­light ex­cel­lence and in­no­va­tion re­gard­ing in-house coun­sels and their fun­da­men­tal po­si­tion in dri­ving busi­ness­es for­ward.

“Today’s GCs face un­prece­dent­ed chal­lenges when it comes to tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions and com­plex reg­u­la­tions of the 21st cen­tu­ry. They need to be at the fore­front of the pri­or, and al­so mas­ters of the lat­ter. The GCs that have been rec­og­nized de­serve our warmest con­grat­u­la­tions”, Emma Berglund added.
