Baker McKenzie further strengthens its International Commercial & Trade team by recruiting Olof Johannesson, who has a long experience of compliance, customs and export issues, to its Stockholm office.
"I am really pleased that Olof Johannesson has chosen to join us. External political factors and increasing globalization have led to a greater demand for compliance and export-control services and many of Sweden’s export companies turn to us for advice in this field. Olof’s solid expertise in compliance, and customs and export allows us to enhance our offering to our clients," says Mattias Hedwall, partner in Stockholm and responsible globally for Baker McKenzie’s International Commercial & Trade practice.
Olof Johannesson joins Baker McKenzie from Vinge in Gothenburg, where he worked with trade matters. He has also worked with EU and competition law at Mannheimer Swartling in Brussels.
"I am looking forward to being part of the team and contributing to the continued growth of Baker McKenzie, one of the leading players in trade and compliance," says Olof Johannesson.
