Wistrand recruits IT-law specialist Carl Näsholm

Wistrand Advokatbyrå strengthens the firms offer within IT-law and digitalisation with the recruitment of Carl Näsholm.

Carl specialises within IT-law, complex outsourcing agreements, privacy and regulatory issues.

– We can see that a growing number of companies are in need of advice within the area of IT-law because of the digitalisation and the evolving regulatory landscape. Therefore, we are very happy that Carl has chosen to join Wistrand as his expertise further strengthens our offer, says Fredrik Råsberg, Managing Partner at the Wistrand Stockholm office.

Carl has many years of experience from the banking and insurance industry and joins from the insurance company Länsförsäkringar AB, where he in his position as a senior legal counsel has worked with sourcing and implementations of complex IT-systems as well as outsourcing and privacy matters related to new technology. Carl also has experiences from the IT- and management consulting firm Accenture, and before that as an IT-lawyer at one of the major law firms in Sweden.

– Wistrand is a solid firm with a strong position on the market and I am looking forward to working with skilled colleagues and being able to contribute with my experience to the firm. I started my career at a law firm and now, having gained experience from being a legal counsel, both from the buying and the supplier side – and especially from working in the regulatory environment that characterise the banking and insurance industry – it is very inspiring to be back working as an advisor.
