Who's Who Legal Competition: Future Leaders - Partners

Sanna Erika Teresia Orkan is the co-founding partner of DelaCalle Abogados SLP, a legal boutique specialised in EU, antitrust and competition law based in Madrid, Spain.

DelaCalle’s partners act for companies and investors alike in complex cartel investigations, advise on merger-control assignments and craft sophisticated defence strategies for clients affected by abusive behavioural practices. Founded in January 2013, the firm was awarded the 2017 European medal of merit in recognition of its excellence, relevant services to the European Union and outstanding contribution to the legal field.

The only foreign female partner ever recommended by The Legal 500 for EU and competition law in Spain, Ms Orkan began her career in 2000 by serving at the global security department of the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs.

Following an assignment at the Swedish Consulate in San Diego, USA, in 2001 Ms Orkan was appointed desk officer at the Foreign Ministry’s Americas department, handling Sweden’s bilateral relations with several Latin American countries. During this period, Ms Orkan also acted as one of Sweden’s delegates at the committee of permanent representatives in the European Union. 

After leaving the Diplomatic Service Ms Orkan moved to Madrid, where she worked for a Public Foundation. She co-founded the firm in 2013.

Ms Orkan is a Swedish jurist. She received both her law degree and her master’s degree with honours from the University of Stockholm, Sweden (her final thesis was entitled “Hardcore Cartels in the US and in the EC”).  

WWL says: Sanna Orkan is "highly experienced in the area of antitrust and cartel investigations", and wins praise for her "total commitment to her clients and great reactivity".
