Get to Know Us | Marc Tevell de Falck, Associate, M&A Public, Stockholm
7 December 2021
Could you tell us a bit about your professional background?
After my exchange studies in Heidelberg (Germany), I worked in the asset management department at a major Nordic bank for one and a half years while finishing my law studies and then started working at Hannes Snellman after I graduated.
How did you end up working as an associate at Hannes Snellman?
As a part of the specialised course in equity capital markets law at Uppsala University, I had the privilege to visit Hannes Snellman in Stockholm for lunch and a lecture on public takeovers by Attorney-at-Law Mattias Friberg. While having lunch, I got the opportunity to chat with my soon-to-be colleagues (which I naturally did not know at the time) as well as with HR, which led to me applying for the role of thesis trainee in the Public M&A Team. After handing in my master thesis on public takeovers, I was happy to return to Hannes Snellman as an associate in the same team.
What has been the highlight of your career at Hannes?
I was lucky to start working at Hannes Snellman during a period of a busy public M&A market, and I have consequently already had the chance to work with several public takeovers, mainly Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Internationella Engelska Skolan, Handicare, and Feelgood. I enjoy working with public takeovers as it involves a lot of “action”.
What advice would you give to someone who just started law school?
Try to break down your long-term goals into smaller, more manageable tasks. Make to-do lists and set deadlines for yourself, and remember to reward yourself when you achieve your own goals (big or small). Remember to “treat yourself like someone you are responsible for helping”.
