Lindholm Wallgren

18 February 2011

Carita Wallgren-Lindholm formed this arbitration boutique at the beginning of 2009 after more than 25 years at Finnish firm Roschier. Back then, she said she was hoping to spend more time as an arbitrator and less on “the management that is inherent in a large law firm.” A year later she was joined by her husband, former Roschier managing partner Tomas Lindholm, and the firm changed its name to the current formulation.

For most of her career, Carita Wallgren-Lindholm has divided her time between M&A work and arbitration. After training at international disputes boutique Surrey & Morse (now Jones Day) and SG Archibald in Paris, she returned to Finland in the mid-1980s. She is a member of the executive boards of both the Finnish and Swedish arbitration associations as well as the ICC Commission on Arbitration, and in 2007 Finland appointed her to the ICSID panel of conciliators. Both Lindholm and Wallgren-Lindholm are active as arbitrators. Canadian arbitrator J William Rowley QC described Lindhom as “a near iconic figure in the Baltic legal and business circles.” Speaking after Lindholm announced he was joining his wife at the new firm, his successor as head of Roschier’s dispute resolution practice, Claes Lundblad, said he was convinced that “success for them will be a piece of cake.”
