We’re hiring!

Are you interested in working at a forward-thinking boutique business law firm, in the center of Stockholm, with a diversity of assignments? We are now looking for a talented and positive individual with a burning interest in M&A, for the position as Junior Associate, to complement our team.

About Qap Legal

The lawyers at Qap are skilled business lawyers who have been trained at several of the leading international law firms in Sweden and Europe. We provide legal advice and assistance to entrepreneurs, start-ups and scale-ups in a business-oriented and pragmatic format. 

Qap provides advice and aspires greatness in, e.g., the following areas:

  • Mergers & Acquisitions (we just love initiating, negotiating and most of all – closing deals);
  • Start-up and Scale-up (we do everything start-up, when it comes to legal advice, and we do it well!);
  • Corporate Matters (corporate is what we do, whether it is to assist in incorporating companies, conduct shareholders’ or board meetings or just redraft articles, we are with the clients all the way);
  • Financing (whether it is seed capital, capital venture, private equity, loans, shareholder contributions, or other financing methods, we will mastermind it for our clients);
  • Commercial Agreements (we help our clients to get effective enforceable and tailored contractual arrangements with everyone from their clients, to suppliers, and partners);
  • Corporate Governance (having a well-governed and well-structured company creates conditions for success – trust us we know – and we will make sure our clients get there);
  • Data Protection Matters (we help our clients to draft and implement data protection and privacy policies, processes and procedures);
  • Qap Notary (one of our lawyers is an appointed Notary Public and therefore we can assist our clients in notarization and legalization of documents, issuing apostilles and more)
