The Code of Conduct provides a framework for the professional and ethical standards to be observed in lawyers’ professional activitites. It contains rules on running a law firm, on fees, on relations to the opposite party and to the court, and on conflicts of interest.

A cornerstone of the Code of Conduct is the lawyer’s obligation to loyalty towards the client.

The English translation of the Code of Conduct published here is the 2016 version. The original version in Swedish was last amended in 2020.
