As Northmill’s strong growth continues, the company strengthens its legal team with Niclas Carlsson as Group Legal Counsel. Niclas is coming from a role as partner at the law firm Time Law, which he co-founded in 2007.
Northmill’s rapid growth journey continues; during 2017, the company increased its revenue by 123 % (to SEK 307 m) and its workforce by 30 %.

Niclas has a background as a partner at law firms Time Law and Danowsky & Partners. He has extensive experience in business law including IT and intellectual property law, with a Master of Law/LLM degree from Lund University.
“Niclas joining Northmill is a dream come true for the entire company. His competence and experience will undoubtedly prove itself invaluable as the company launches in new markets and with new products. We’re also thrilled to see the kind of senior talent that’s attracted to Northmill - our goal has always been to recruit the best people,” said Hikmet Ego, Chief Executive Officer at Northmill.
“Northmill is a very well-run company in an industry that faces rapid change. I hope that my experience will enable our legal team to support the Group’s continued expansion even more than before.
