Magnusson further boosts its Middle East capabilities with the arrival of Peter Tejler, former Ambassador of Sweden to Iran.

Peter Tejler joins as a Senior Advisor and will be based in Magnusson Stockholm. He has significant diplomatic experience and until earlier this year was Sweden’s Ambassador to Iran. During his career he was also Sweden’s Ambassador to Pakistan and the Republic of South Africa, as well as the Head of the Middle East and North Africa Department at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

Magnusson offers comprehensive guidance and assistance to companies interested in the Middle East. Attorneys working in the Middle East Group have extensive experience in advising clients on projects involving Iran, United Arab Emirates, and other countries of the region.

The Magnusson Middle East Group offers access to a carefully developed network of local attorneys in the region, with whom team members have already been working on various joint projects. The team has a thorough understanding of the local culture, language and business law of the region. The arrival of Peter Tejler further reinforces the team’s range and capabilities.

“We have noticed that both interest in the Middle East and the need for expert legal advice are dynamically growing. The arrival of Peter Tejler reflects our ambition to further strengthen our Middle East Group. His knowledge of the region and broad network of contacts add significant value to what we can offer. This is a unique asset for our clients,” commented Per Magnusson, founder and Senior Partner of Magnusson International.
