Blog

Making the law accessible, useful and, at best, entertaining, is our mission at Synch.

We are therefore happy to present our legal blog, where we will look into concepts, cases, processes and anecdotes relevant to our operations and hopefully to you.

The legal lingo may be considered unaccessible and hard to grasp and if you are a new player on the field, you may find yourself in discussions where lawyers, bankers and other consultants  and know-it-all’s seem to talk a completely different language. We hope that, by continuously reading our blog, you will familiarize yourself with the terminology, main concepts and problematics legal areas encountered as an entrepreneur, business leader or investor. We hope that you will find our posts useful and sometimes even entertaining.

If you have any comments, questions or issues you would like us to address, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the editor (editor@synchlaw.se). Communication is always best when it’s not one-way!
