Employment and Benefits

With a range of specialist expertise, our 20-strong team of lawyers advises on contractual issues arising from acquisitions, company restructuring, incentive programmes and pension arrangements.

Employment law advice

We represent clients in redundancy and restructuring situations, and we also help in competition disputes – for instance when employees start up a competing business. We deal with employment law disputes, discrimination matters and health and safety issues, as well as cross border employment law. We can also advise on how the gig economy may affect the traditional concepts of employer and employee.

International projects

We advise multinationals on establishing European Work Councils, and on cross border acquisitions. This includes establishing European companies, SE companies and outsourcing entire departments internationally. Our lawyers can also help with work permit issues when Swedish companies wish to employ labour abroad.

Our collective expertise

Year after year, international ranking organisations and client surveys rank Vinge’s labour and employment law specialists in tier 1. Because we are a full‑service firm, we can support our clients in all their business law matters.
