Emma Berglund has been appointed new Managing Partner at Hamilton. Johannes Ericson, who was appointed Managing Partner when Hamilton was strengthened by the Ashurst Stockholm team in 2016, resumes his role as partner in the dispute resolution practice group.
Johannes Ericson was given the task of furthering the firm’s progress on the market, which resulted in Hamilton having the highest increase in turnover among Swedish law firms, recording the highest increase in rankings in the Mergermarket M&A Report for 2017, and receiving the largest proportion of ranked partners.
The partnership at Hamilton has appointed Emma Berglund as new Managing Partner. Emma joined the firm in 2006, was appointed partner in 2014 and became a member of the board in 2016. Emma will continue to work with client-related matters along with her Managing Partner position.
Thomas Nygren, chairman of the board at Hamilton, comments: “We have strengthened the firm’s position on the market in a very short period of time, ever since we joined forces with Ashurst Stockholm. These have been two outstanding years, and I am very proud of our journey thus far. Emma is a modern leader who embodies the firm’s core values, and will continue the transformation embarked on two years ago.”
Emma Berglund, Managing Partner-elect, says: “I look forward very much to my new exciting role as Managing Partner, as the firm expands in a constantly transforming market. I shall focus on building our team, strengthening our firm’s culture and brand, as well as reinforcing our strategy, identity and position on the market.”
Emma is Managing Partner effective as of 1 July, 2018.
