Berntson Wines & SPirits is an importer of beer, wine and spirits. One of the products that the company has been distributing since 1978 is the German herbal liqueur Jägermeister. Berntson was accused by the Swedish Consumer Agency of use aggressive sales and marketing methods for Jägermeister and thereby violating the very strict Swedish alcohol legislation. The case went to court and Berntson won an important victory against the Swedish authorities.
“When we got the lawsuit, we contacted MarLaw directly. We realized we needed professional legal help. We met lawyer Markus Ateva. He was stable and balanced and made well-balanced assessments.” Says Boris Elgefjord, commercial director at BerntsonWines & SPirits at the time.
