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.

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".
