MAGNUSSON STRENGTHENS PUBLIC PROCUREMENT PRACTICE WITH NEW PARTNER IN SWEDEN

2016-12-20

International law firm Magnusson further grows with the hire of partner Morvarid Dorkhan Nilsson who joins in Stockholm to head the public procurement practice.

Morvarid Dorkhan Nilsson is a leading expert in the area of public procurement. She has been focusing on this field since 2002 and has gathered extensive experience in all related legal matters. Morvarid advises both domestic and international companies, as well as state institutions and municipalities. She co-authored numerous legal publications focused on public procurement, including manuals.

She is recommended in the area of public procurement by leading benchmarking publications, such as The Legal 500 EMEA and Chambers Europe. Chambers Europe 2016 noted in relation to her: ”Morvarid Dorkhan Nilsson has extensive experience within public procurement, and was recently appointed by the Swedish Judges Academy to educate administrative court judges on the appeals process under public procurement law”. Chambers Europe 2015 quoted the following views from sources, who say: ”She is amazing. Respectful, and involves me in the cases. She really listens to my views, she is honest and she has great experience in procurement”.

Prior to joining Magnusson, Morvarid was with Baker & McKenzie from 2005, as a partner from 2012. Before that she worked in the court system, including the County Court in Skåne and the Court of Appeal in Jönköping.

With her Iranian background and Farsi language skills, Morvarid will also be a valuable resource for Magnusson’s dynamically growing Middle East Group.

“I am delighted to welcome Morvarid to Magnusson. The breadth and depth of her experience and expertise adds further strength to our offering not only in public procurement, but also in Middle East related matters”, commented Per Magnusson, Senior Partner and Founder.

“Magnusson is a modern and forward-thinking law firm. I am excited to join the firm and to assume responsibility for the further development of the public procurement practice group. I am also very much looking forward to working with my colleagues in the Middle East Group and contributing to its further growth”, stated Morvarid Dorkhan Nilsson.
