We asked James Farrington of the law firm Wiggin & Dana in Stamford, Connecticut, to take the stand.  James has been working with Swedes and Swedish pharmaceutical companies for the past 25 years, and has come to understand a great deal about how things work in that (as he puts it) smart Scandinavian country.  At least with regard to the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries, and if you open a business newspaper today, you’ll find those to be a major part of Sweden’s dynamic infrastructure (they have the largest number of biotech companies per capita).
