  • 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.

    6/28/2017

In addition to named operations, it is the intention of Geely to offer other Chinese automotive companies to join the Geely Innovation Centre in Gothenburg.

    Geely, working on a Chinese market timescale, now wants to move forward with speed and implement said building, through acquisition of land, obtaining building rights, securing funding and is seeking a firm commitment from the City of Gothenburg to assist and support to the best of ability to make this centre a reality. The land lot Geely intends to acquire is a real estate located on Lindholmen in Gothenburg, Sweden. The development consists of several buildings to be erected. It is Geely’s intention to include both office buildings and accommodation as well as green areas. Geely has entered into a letter of intent with Älvstranden Utveckling AB to acquire the land. Furthermore, Geely has had a tender procedure for the construction of the buildings and a preferred builder is appointed. The Geely project is one of the largest in Gothenburg.

    The letter of intent between Geely and Gothenburg City was signed today (June 28, 2017) in Hangzhou, China. The Swedish prime minister Stefan Löfven witnessed the signing in person.

    Geely has been represented by Delphi Law Firm in the project. Delphi’s team was led by Anders Hulegårdh and consisted of Anton Melander, Linda Kraemer, Amy Lindquist, Annika Bergman, Emil Åstradsson and Anna Schönning.
