Delivering legal services always starts with the right people. People who are well-trained in legal analysis and business matters but that also have management and technological skills. But also with a willingness to work in new ways, all the while keeping the high standards of the Bar. That’s a tall order. We also believe in keeping it lean and simple. As a result, and due to our unique set-up, DeLorean Advokat’s nimble team is able to take on a broad range of complex matters normally offered to larger teams.

Broad legal perspective
Pontus has been active both at smaller niche law firms and at some of Sweden’s larger law firms. With DeLorean Advokat, he wanted to create a contemporary law firm that offers the best of both worlds – always based on the client’s best interests and experience. Therefore, DeLorean Advokat also works with a lot of internal innovation to create the best possible conditions for achieving the client’s goals.
Comprehensive and hard hitting
Pontus is an appreciated and hands-on process attorney who has extensive experience in helping companies and individuals to make commercial decisions when conflicts have arisen. His view of conflict is as follows: a conflict is if a client has a particular opinion and others do not agree. It is his job to represent his client’s interests in the best way possible. It also means that he must have a broad background in order to be able to contribute a holistic perspective in the areas that the clients want to pursue. Through his unique background, he can offer comprehensive advice that even many larger law firms cannot match without offering a bigger team effort. Often a conflict can be resolved through negotiation. Disputes can also arise that can only be resolved through a court’s ruling. He is a thoroughly experience litigator that always looks to his clients best interests in every given moment of a process or negotiation.
