The announcement comes just a few months after DLA confirmed it had agreed to a combination with 30-lawyer Finnish law firm Peltonen, which joined the firm's Helsinki office.

Grönberg Advokatbyrå focuses on commercial, corporate and M&A, dispute resolution and insolvency. Its 21 lawyers and seven support staff will join DLA's 76 lawyers in its Stockholm office in October.

A strong Nordic presence

DLA signalled the merger will strengthen the firm's offering in its key sectors of financial services, technology, energy, real estate and infrastructure and construction. The firm now has over 200 lawyers in the Nordic region, with offices across Finland, Norway and Sweden.
