We welcome you!

It is our great pleasure to extend to you a personal invitation to the fourth Nordic General Counsel Summit in Stockholm on 23 January 2020.

The role of general counsel at multi-national corporations continues to grow in complexity and importance, and you are expected to deliver across the full spectrum of in-house responsibilities. The range of issues you deal with is vast, and it continues to be a challenge to deliver high-quality legal support quickly, efficiently, and throughout a large organisation.

Although some matters and situations on any general counsel’s table may be specific and unique, there are other issues you and other general counsel, especially those working in the Nordic area, have in common. We hope to provide you a platform to address these issues and get a chance to share views.

Keeping this in mind, Hannes Snellman is organising the fourth Nordic General Counsel Summit to give you the opportunity to connect with the Nordic general counsel community and discuss topics that are high on your common agenda. Nordic General Counsel Summit is designed exclusively for general counsel at corporations with a Nordic presence.

Fredrik Olsson,
Managing Partner Stockholm

Managing Partner Helsinki

Lunch from K-Märkt

Lunch will be served by Jens Dolk, one of the owners of K-märkt. K-märkt’s restaurants are based on a principle of reducing food waste, and their motto is “We fight food waste”. They use unique methods in operating their seven restaurants, cafes, and event venues sustainably. For example, there is no menu at all; the restaurants only offer a “chef’s special”. By not promising what to serve, they can take advantage of the resources available at each time. The chefs are creative in the kitchen and passionate about making a difference. By serving great sustainable food, they make an impact on both our health and the soil.

Cocktails and Dinner at the Hallwyl House

By joining the Nordic General Counsel Summit dinner you will enter the home of Count and Countess Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, which today is one of Stockholm’s most eccentric and engaging museums. This palatial residence, situated at Hamngatan 4, was built as a winter home for the couple, completed in 1898.

The Hallwyl House was built to designs by Isak Gustaf Clason (1856-1930), the most renowned architect in Sweden at the time. Among his other famous works is Nordiska Museet (The Nordic Museum). Behind the facade of Hamngatan 4 the wondrously preserved series of rooms, as originally furnished by Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, stands as a unique testimonial of the lifestyle and décor of the late Victorian period in Sweden.


Date and Time

The event takes place on Thursday 23 January 2020. A welcome desk will be open in the reception on the 2nd floor from 10:00 am. The event starts with registration and a morning coffee between 10:00 am and 11:00 am and the main programme will run from 11:00 am to 6:00 pm. Cocktails and dinner will be served at the Hallwyl House after the seminar.
