Wistrand continues to grow

Wistrand continues to grow and to reinforce its cutting-edge tax group. It is now clear that Wistrand’s Göteborg office will merge with Haglund & Partners’ tax practice. The merger will be completed on 31 October 2011.

– Despite the recession, Wistrand has demonstrated strong performance in recent years. Our ambition is to continue to grow and to enhance our services. Increasing our team by six additional tax lawyers is fully in line with our objectives. In addition, it strengthens our position as a leading full-service law firm in Sweden, says Mårten Hulterström, chairman and partner at Wistrand.

Göteborg-based Haglund & Partners has long been a respected name in tax law. The company has expertise in both corporate and personal tax matters.

– Haglund & Partners is a well-respected firm and offers specialist skills which are increasingly in demand. Together with our other tax lawyers, Wistrand now offers unparalleled  expertise in tax law, says Martin Wedén, partner at Wistrand and managing partner of the office in Göteborg.

Wistrand and Haglund & Partners have worked closely together for a very long time and have several common clients. The merger is a natural step for both parties.

– We know that we complement each other well. Both firms share the same basic values and a client-focused approach, which is a prerequisite for a successful merger of tax businesses. We now look forward to completing the merger and to begin working together to help our clients’ businesses, says Erik Haglund, partner at Haglund & Partners.
