MAGNUSSON NAMED LAW FIRM OF THE YEAR: THE NORDICS
The Lawyer European Awards are hosted by The Lawyer, a leading UK legal weekly. The awards ceremony took place on Wednesday 28 September 2011, in Geneva.
While assessing law firms, the jury has been looking for evidence of: strategic vision, strong partnership ethos, strong financial performance and growth, consistent excellence in their chosen sectors, and excellent talent management.
The awards were judged by a panel of in-house and UK senior partners, including Dominic Bacon, General Counsel, Group Head of Compliance and Company Secretary, WorldSpreads; Grainne Brankin, General Counsel, Yahoo! Sarl; Chris Carroll, Senior Partner, Travers Smith; James Furber, Senior Partner, Farrer & Co; Simon Johnston, Senior Partner, Nabarro; Charles Martin, Senior Partner, Macfarlanes; Robin Saphra, General Counsel, Colt Group S.A.
The award was accepted by managing partner Per Magnusson, who took part in the awards ceremony together with partner Charlotte Bus.
The Lawyer noted in relation to Magnusson, inter alia:
"Magnusson beat several other larger and better-known competitors on the back of an outstanding nomination highlighting its consistent growth and recent expansion into Finland.
Like winners in other categories, Magnusson is seeking to promote diversity and skills. It hired three female partners during the past year, bringing the proportion of women at partnership level to 27 per cent, and has run an academy for legal and non-legal staff for the past three years that includes language classes.
That international focus has given Magnusson an enviable client list, including large Nordic companies as well as businesses headquartered overseas."
