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.
