  • Anna Ulfsdotter Forssell, lawyer at the law firm Delphi, will chair a new government inquiry into public procurement

    7/7/2017

    The government has appointed an inquiry to investigate how the legal framework governing public procurement can be made simpler and more flexible, and to examine certain questions relating to the review process. On Tuesday, July 4, it was announced that Anna Ulfsdotter Forssell, partner and lawyer at the Delphi law firm, will lead the new investigation.

    - I am incredibly proud and humbled to have been appointed by the government to lead the inquiry. It is a formidable challenge. I believe simplifying the legislation and revising the rules governing reviews are the most pressing issues in the area of public procurement right now, says Anna Ulfsdotter Forssell, one of the highest ranked lawyers within this field. 

    As the government's special investigator, Anna Ulfsdotter Forssell and her team will have a number of questions to consider. These include fees for public procurement reviews and whether the losing party in a review proceeding should be obliged to pay the other party's litigation costs. The terms of reference further include an examination of the provisions governing contracts with a value below the EU public procurement thresholds and of measures that could potentially be taken to reduce the number of reviews. 

    The inquiry will deliver its report on June 15, 2018. Anna Ulfsdotter Forssell will also continue to work as a lawyer and to lead Delphi's EU, competition and public procurement law group.

  • Delphi to award commercial law scholarship for third successive year

    9/21/2017

    To highlight and encourage goal-oriented law students, during the fall law firm Delphi will award a scholarship in commercial law. The scholarship also aims to offer students practical guidance and mentorship as they continue on their path within law.

    Applications for the Delphi Scholarship are now invited. The scholarship, which comprises a cash award of SEK 25,000 and a summer placement as a clerk at one of Delphi’s five offices in 2018, was established three years ago.

    “The scholarship is a good way to highlight goal-oriented students and provides us with an opportunity to make contacts in the student world. That is important to us. Anyone who is in their fifth to seventh semester of studying law, has their sights set on commercial law and is interested in supplementing their study funds should definitely apply,” says David Aversten, Managing Partner at Delphi.

    Within the framework of the Delphi Scholarship a further two individuals will be offered a mentor for one year who will provide practical guidance and support for their law studies. The mentor will be an advokat-level lawyer or partner at Delphi.

    The central element of the application process for the Delphi Scholarship is a case solution within general contract law. Applications must be received by October 16. A jury consisting of partners from each Delphi office will assess the contributions and will then announce five finalists, who will have the opportunity to present their case verbally to the jury. The scholarship will then be awarded at a final dinner at Delphi’s offices in Stockholm on November 16.

    For more information about the application criteria and this year’s case, see: https://sqore.com/opportunity/delphi-scholarship-2017
