We have an exciting new opportunity for an Associate to join our growing Swedish team in Stockholm, focusing on international corporate venture and growth capital work in combination with general commercial technology and IT matters.

The practice ranges from corporate venture and growth capital work, M&A, tech transactions, digital transformation and data projects, licensing and outsourcing deals, renewable energy projects to employment matters.
