We are big enough to handle all kinds of matters yet small enough to be flexible and responsive to our clients' needs.

Cederquist is proud to be one of the leading law firms in the Nordics. With the highest level of expertise in all areas of business law combined with a strong personal commitment, we strive to be the best possible business partner for our clients. We have an inquisitive approach to new ideas, and are constantly exploring digital solutions and innovative approaches to meet our clients' needs and exceed their expectations. We are a firm at the forefront - and are consistently ranked as one of Sweden's top law firms.

Cederquist was founded in 1953 when Bengt Cederquist, who was in-house counsel at one of Sweden's largest media groups, decided to start his own law practice. We have come a long way since then. Today, Cederquist is a value-driven firm organised as a true partnership with 170 employees working together as one team. We benefit from each other's expertise and strive towards the same goal: to stay at the forefront and lead the market within our fields of expertise.

First-class advice - both at home and internationally

Our long experience in the industry has made Cederquist a well-respected firm in the Swedish market, as well as internationally. We have been lead advisors and coordinated transactions in most European countries, and our lawyers handle cross-border matters on a daily basis.

In the international arena, we have chosen to stay independent. By maintaining our independence, we can always guarantee high-quality cooperation partners and offer our clients the best possible help with the right expertise for the specific assignment. We have great relationships and well-developed cooperation with many of the leading law firms worldwide, particularly in the Nordic region, the EU, the UK, and the US.

Focus on the client

We view ourselves as a modern business partner rather than a traditional advisor. We understand the importance of partnership and collaboration to achieve the best possible outcome. That's why we work closely with our clients and handle all matters in a sophisticated and solution-oriented way. Each client has a dedicated team tailored to their unique circumstances and needs for the particular matter at hand. That way, we can ensure that we deliver the greatest possible benefit for the client, providing maximum quality, as well as effective advice.



Cederquist is a value-driven law firm. This means that our core values are more than just great words in a presentation. Our values guide us forward and influence our services, processes, culture, and working environment.

Our values are the cornerstone for how we treat each other, our clients, our colleagues in the industry, and our community at large. The values guide us in our efforts to provide an open, transparent, and inclusive workplace where all employees can make a difference and drive the business forward. We continuously check in with the organisation and implement activities that make our values tangible. This is done through annual employee reviews, professional growth discussions at least three times a year, regular town-hall meetings, and workshops on issues relating to our culture and conduct.

A solid foundation

Our core values are the foundation for our daily work, which makes it easier for us to set and agree on shared goals. A shared approach also contributes to strong cohesion and security that allow us to focus entirely on the client and the assignments we take on. 

Our core values


QUALITY is our way of life. Through legal expertise, business-mindedness and thoroughness, we build trust. We take a long-term approach to our interactions and relationships with customers, colleagues, and partners. We prioritise knowledge sharing and development. We are always monitoring and evaluating our work. We communicate clearly, honestly, and effectively. Quality is key in everything we do.


COMMITMENT makes us think beyond the task at hand. We work as a team. We create a sense of community, development, and energy. We help and support each other and take initiative to find the right solutions. We are interested and committed. We have a positive and curious approach, which creates good results as well as a good atmosphere at work.


PERCEPTIVENESS provides us with the best possibilities for joint development and success. We listen, include, and integrate actively to meet customer and market needs. We acknowledge and lift each other up to create a dynamic, inspiring, and forward-looking environment.

ESG & Sustainability


The importance of acting sustainably

We are convinced of the importance of acting sustainably in all contexts. In an ever-changing society, the need for accountability is greater than ever. We work constantly to improve our business, our advice, and our working methods in order to deliver the highest quality in every instance.

We also do what we can to give back, have an impact, and make a difference in society. We support organisations and projects through pro bono work, involvement, and sponsorships. Our largest efforts are our cooperation with Sweden for UNHCR, Mentor, and the Swedish Chess Federation. In addition, we are involved in projects such as Aktiv Skola, Nolltolerans mot mobbning, and Stockholms stadsmission.

The art of managing sustainability issues

We offer our clients assistance on matters regarding sustainability, ESG, and CSR so that they can better manage risks and opportunities related to human rights, working conditions, the environment, and anti-corruption. In recent years, many clients have recognised that sustainability is strategically important to their transactions and we have extensive experience in dealing with these issues.



Each year, the largest international ranking institutes conduct surveys in which they ask buyers of legal services to evaluate their legal consultants. Year after year, we continue to be at the top, and are consistently ranked as one of Sweden’s premier law firms. We are very proud of this. Above all, it is a confirmation that the work we do to constantly improve our business is truly yielding great results.

In 2021 Cederquist also won Law Firm of the Year, a client and industry survey award conducted by the analyst firm Regi.


“Innovative and extremely customer friendly approach. Great knowledge and easy to work with."

Legal 500, 2022

"The work done was excellent; Cederquist coordinated all legal cross-border efforts in an impeccable way. They are clearly able to tap into an international network when required."

Chambers Global, 2022

"Excellent, in short. They are a strong and very capable team, solid partners in several - to us at least - highly relevant areas of expertise and are also building a good team of associates for the future."
