Lindahls ramps up with double hire

Swedish firm Lindahl has recruited the head of legal from client ABB Financial Services and has hired EU partner Eva-Maj Mühlenbock from the ruins of Ernst & Young's Swedish firm EY Law

Petra Hedengran was general counsel for the Nordic region at ABB. When the company sold its structured finance business to GE Commercial Finance last year, she made the decision to move back to private practice.

Hedengran has joined Lindahls' banking and finance group as a senior associate, specialising in stockbroking, mutual funds, investment management, insurance and structured finance.

Mühlenbock will join Lindahls in February as a partner and head of EU and competition. She is bringing one associate with her. Mühlenbock's arrival has been delayed by her role in petrol cartel litigation.
