GCR 100 - A guide to the world’s leading competition law and economics practices
ERIC ERICSSON, the one-man show, has been making waves in Swedish competition law since opening his practice in 2007. Despite not being able to take on large cases by himself, Ericsson has a strong reputation and acquires many clients and requests for second opinion, strategic counselling and litigation, particularly in the construction, information technology, telecoms and travel sectors.
Ericsson acts as lead counsel to GothNet in an alleged tender cartel case now pending before the Stockholm District Court, as well as in a follow-on damages case. He is co-counsel to Telesport in a damages case against TeliaSonera. Construction products distributor Ahlsell tapped Ericsson in the notification of its acquisition of plumbing manufacturer Prevex. He has also recently been appointed arbitrator in a competition law-related contract dispute in Sweden.
"One-man band Eric Ericsson continues to make a big noise in Swedish competition law since setting up shop in 2007. Though his unusual position as a sole practitioner means he cannot take on large cases by himself, his strong reputation means he is never short of work giving second opinions, strategic counselling and litigation particularly in the construction, IT/telecoms and travel sectors.
Ericsson is lead counsel to GothNet in an alleged tender cartel case now pending before the Stockholm District Court. He acted for the seller in the Orkla-Cederroth deal and for the buyer in the notification of the merger between Genevad, BEWI and assets from packaging company DS Smith. Ericsson also assisted the Swedish Agency for Public Management on the competition aspects of a governmental inquiry into the financing of housing for migrants."
