Member profile: Artem Barsukov
Artem Barsukov practices business law at Bennett Jones with experience in all major areas of corporate law, including dispute resolution through international commercial arbitration. His exposure to multiple legal areas — a rarity in an increasingly specialized profession — makes him an extremely versatile lawyer, able to offer advice on all types of issues facing Swedish businesses in Canada.
Artem has an intense passion for all things Swedish. An avid fan of Saab cars since the tender age of five, and having grown up reading Emil i Lönneberga, he went on to learn Swedish at the University of Alberta and spent a semester studying international business at the Uppsala University. Clearly, this was not enough Sweden for him, as Artem went on to return several times, spending almost a year in Sweden overall. Artem has business proficiency in both spoken and written Swedish. He maintains it on a daily basis by listening to live feeds of Sveriges Radio on his daily commute to the office and reading Dagens Industri during his free time.
With his knowledge of Swedish language and culture, Artem can act as a link between your Swedish business and the vast expertise and resources Bennett Jones has to offer. If you need a trusted business advisor who can — literally — speak your language, understand your unique business needs and philosophy, or effectively represent you in negotiations involving Swedish counterparts, look no further.
Artem is admitted to practice in both Ontario and Alberta.
