Cirio is a Swedish law firm based in Stockholm, working with local and international clients, navigating complex legal infrastructures and transactions, ultimately improving the way both business and society work.

The firm was originally founded in 1918 and was part of another Swedish law firm between 1990 and 2018. Cirio adopted its name in 2019, to mark the beginning of a new era of business law practice.

With our high quality of service and strong determination to deliver outstanding results, we build long-term relationships with our clients with the aim to be not just an exceptional legal advisor, but also your trusted business partner.

We call it the fourth way.

Today, in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, a new chapter in human development begins. One that will bring change at a speed, scale and magnitude unlike any before.

Fueled by a convergence of technologies across digital, biological and physical systems, the previously unthinkable will become every day realities. In turn, society and the economy as we know it will be reshaped fundamentally, disrupting business models and requiring new ways of working in each and every industry, including the legal industry. In doing so complex challenges will be posed and require new rules to play by.

In the face of this we believe that a new approach to business law is required – We call it the fourth way.

We unite under four perspectives to improve the way business and society work.

We know the rules of business

We combine solid and broad expertise across legal disciplines, covering Transactional Services, Business Strategy and Operations Services, Special Situations Services and Collaborative Innovation.

We have a passion for progress

With a passion for progressive business and transactions we’ve evolved specialized competence within areas like renewable energy, life science and artificial intelligence. We take a holistic approach to transactions and bring unique knowledge on how to build truly collaborative partnerships.

We see the human

We take a ‘human first’ attitude towards the way we run our business. The goal is simple. Create a sustainable working environment where each of us feels valued, inspired and challenged to keep growing. And through understanding our clients as people we seek to build lasting and rewarding business relationships.

We aspire to make a change

By bringing expertise, passion and empathy to everything we do, our ambition is clear. We aim to make a change by shaping and helping others to navigate complex legal infrastructures, ultimately improving the way both business and society work.

A law firm with a purpose

Cirio is a law firm with a purpose to shape the rules of the market and society of the future. We want to take an active part in shaping the future of the ongoing Fourth Industrial Revolution, for our clients, our talents and for the market and society in general.

We are an active player in the Swedish Data Protection Forum, with our colleagues Caroline Olstedt Carlström and Maria Holmström Mellberg as two of its founders. We contribute to integration of young people in society through Nolla Utanförskapet, with our colleague Sanna Wolk as a co-founder. Through our long-standing co-operation with the University of Tennessee, we take an active part in establishing new models for innovation and value generation in commercial partnerships in the network economy, based on relational contracts and the Vested® model.

Through these and also other areas, our aim is to contribute with our deep expertise and experience to a better tomorrow.
