Roschier nets Linklaters finance star

Linklaters‘ Stockholm head of banking and finance Frederik Rydin is to join Finnish firm Roschier to expand its Sweden presence.

The hire of Rydin, one of Sweden’s top acquisition finance specialists, is a coup for Roschier, which has added a total of seven lawyers to its Stockholm office through a recent recruitment campaign.

Roschier became the first Finland-based firm to establish a presence in Sweden when it launched in Stockholm in October 2005. The latest hires bring the Stockholm office to 40 lawyers.

Roschier senior partner Tomas Lindholm said: “We foresee an increasing demand for our services in the Northern European region.”

Roschier also operates a 200-lawyer alliance across the Baltic states.
