Lindahl law firm, the fastest growing firm in the country in terms of major business law advisors, continues to develop. Lindahl will be moving to new premises in the heart of Varvsstaden in Malmö when “Snickeriet”, the oldest building in the area, has been converted to 2,500 square metres of office space.
Lindahl has been growing bigger and stronger for several years as both lawyers and clients are attracted to the firm. The Malmö office is currently Lindahl’s largest, with around 85 employees and the firm aims to continue the expansion.
“We expect Lindahl to continue growing rapidly, particularly in Malmö, which will generate exciting business for the many talented people who apply to us. Like Varvsstaden, we are now entering a new phase. We’re building for the future in an area that’s doing exactly the same,” says Johan Herrström, Lindahl Chairperson and Managing Partner at the Malmö office.
The “Snickeriet” property is the oldest building in Varvsstaden. The oldest section was built as early as the 1870s and has been used for various purposes over the years, including as a carpentry shop for shipbuilding. The building is included in both the Q and the K categories, which means that it must be preserved and may not be altered. That imposes high standards on everyone involved in the project since the entire building will now form Lindahl’s new office space.
“We will put our sustainability strategy into practice in the renovation of Snickeriet where, besides restoring and preserving the building, we will be able to reuse materials such as windows and doors. We will make the most of the old wooden framework and wooden beams. It’s a complicated process involving an interplay between aesthetic requirements, conservation requirements and financial aspects. It’ll allow us to create a building that meets all modern requirements, while also preserving the soul of the building, which is important to Lindahl,” says Hanne Birk, Development Manager at Varvsstaden.
“We are working with Varvsstaden and our firm of architects Elding Oscarson to create an exciting, unique combination of the modern and the historical that will hopefully become an inspiring environment for us and our clients,” says Johan Herrström.
The conversion is scheduled to begin in summer 2022 and the firm is expected to be able to move in at the beginning of 2024.
