History and values

History and values

Gernandt & Danielsson was founded in 1992 when a group of partners and their colleagues decided to leave what was then one of the largest law firms in Sweden, in order to establish a firm of their own. The new firm was relatively small but worked on large, complex, and often international matters from the start. The client base was mainly in the financial sector.

Our clients and matters are still large, but we are no longer a small firm. Our office in central Stockholm is the workplace for approximately 140 employees, 80 of whom are lawyers. Since the beginning, our corporate culture has been characterised by high quality and a strong client focus. We have succeeded in maintaining and developing this by expanding through a conscious policy of organic growth combined with strategic recruitments to senior positions.

It is against this background that we have articulated our vision: to be the most highly respected and sought-after business law adviser and employer in Sweden.



Gernandt & Danielsson's business is founded on our clients' best interests and ensuring that they benefit from our services. We aim to be the most highly respected and sought-after commercial law adviser and employer in Sweden. The way in which we translate our values into practical action determines whether we live up to our promises to our clients and achieve our business objectives.

Our work is based on five core values in everything we do, and these are also our promises to you as a client. Our cornerstone is to offer outstanding quality, i.e. the greatest possible value based on the client's specific needs. We also have unwavering loyalty to our clients and the matters they entrust us with. Our clients can count on our steadfast integrity – we speak frankly and take responsibility for our advice as well as our assessments. Our dedication is expressed by our level of ambition and accessibility. Last but not least, we want our clients to feel included in the team spirit which characterises Gernandt & Danielsson.
