IT specialist strengthens firm's links in Sweden

THE SWEDISH Chamber of Commerce's first law firm member Reynolds Porter Chamberlain has strengthened its Scandinavian connections by appointing computer law specialist Jan Anderberg.

Anderberg, who resigned as legal counsel to Swedish company Asea Brown Boveri AB, started work as a consultant in Reynolds Porter's corporate department earlier this month.

“We've been members of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce since 1921 and no other firm joined until 1976,” said marketing partner Tim Anderson. “As a result we have built up a strong Swedish client base with a large number of Swedish multi-national companies.

“Our feeling was that Jan would help strengthen our already perceived niche in that market area.”

Anderson said the firm's senior partner Alan Toulson was acting as vice-chair and honorary solicitor to the chamber, and his succession to the chair next June would boost Reynolds Porters' links to Sweden.

“We act for a lot of UK subsidiaries of multinationals, but it helps to be able to keep in contact with Swedish parent companies,” said Anderson.

“This appointment enhances our ability to keep in contact with the head offices.”
