Ulf has been advising Swedish and foreign companies and organisations for over 25 years in respect to the areas of EU and competition law, public procurement, infrastructure, state aid and with public sector contracts. Ulf also has considerable experience of advising on matters regarding merger control, anti-corruption and special investigations. He has represented clients in proceedings in both national courts and the European Court of Justice, including acting on the well-known Gourmet case.

In respect to competition law and merger control matters, Ulf has had extensive contact with the EU Commission and many other European and international competition authorities. On the anti-corruption side, he has carried out several major surveys and so-called “self-cleaning” court proceedings in both Sweden and other countries.
