“We solve problems and remove blockers”

Oscar Hållén, General Counsel at the Swedish payment unicorn Klarna shares his experiences from building an in-house legal department in an international fast-growing company at the upcoming SCC event on 15 October: SCC Digital Week, Trendspotting in commercial dispute resolution from the business perspective.

– At Klarna, our main focus as legal professionals is to solve problems and remove blockers. We encourage our colleagues to always be action biased. Combining this mindset with the principle of cross-functional teams where lawyers are part of the business teams proved to be such a success story that almost all parts of the business now want a dedicated hands-on lawyer of their own! I am excited to participate in the SCC Digital Week and share my insights and mistakes growing the Klarna legal team from 20 to 120, says Oscar Hållén.
