Financial Regulatory

Financial market regulation is complex and detailed. Vinge leads the way in legal advice to the financial sector in Sweden. We continuously monitor developments in the law and in how financial regulations are applied.

Financial market regulation comes from several regimes – from the EU to the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority, government agencies and industry organisations. The regulations are comprehensive and vary according to the type of licensed business being conducted. They also change frequently as the authorities keep pace with innovative, user‑friendly services offered by both established financial companies and start‑ups.

We have been involved in the majority of Sweden’s most complex acquisitions in the financial sector over many years. Clients value our combination of deep legal expertise and experience of the financial market when they need to make and implement business decisions. Several of our lawyers have worked at the Financial Supervisory Authority. And some of our most senior lawyers have board and elected assignments in the financial sector.
