I am a partner at Westerberg since its inception. I am joined by partners with whom I have worked for many years.

I have 40 years’ experience as a dispute resolution lawyer. I have dealt with some 300 cases as counsel, arbitrator or president of arbitral tribunals. I have held positions in many organizations within my field. Today I focus my attention exclusively on dispute resolution, which I think is the most rewarding aspect of the legal profession.

In recent years I focused on international arbitration and have conducted cases under the rules of most important institutes, with venues including Stockholm, Helsinki, Paris, London, New York and Singapore. I have worked with with many of the international leaders in the field.

I have practised commercial arbitration in most industries. I have also worked on investment disputes under bilateral investment treaties as well as the Energy Charter Treaty. I have represented many states and state entities as well as investors. I am ranked by the leading institutes including Chambers and Legal 500. I am one of the Swedish appointees to ICSID.

Examples of recent recognition include the following:

Chambers & Partners, ranked in Band 1 under Dispute Resolution and as a “Most in Demand Arbitrator – Sweden”, sources describe me as “"extremely experienced and highly regarded".

Ranked as a “Leading Individual” under Dispute Resolution in Legal 500, 2018.

Positions I have held include:

Member ICC International Court of Arbitration

President Swedish Arbitration Association

Member of the Board, Stockholm Center of Commercial Law, Section for Dispute Resolution, at Stockholm University

Member of the Board, Finnish Arbitration Institute

Member of the Board, Swedish Bar Association.
