Vinge is the leading law firm within private equity on the Swedish market. We represent a broad spectrum of fund managers in fund formation and restructuring engagements, as well as with ongoing issues, and institutions, family offices and other investors in connection with investments in private equity funds and other fund-like structures.
Vinge’s dedicated team of lawyers with experience from both fund management and the investment side offer an efficient and high-quality process in conjunction with fund formation engagements. We advise large, established fund managers as well as smaller fund managers with limited or no previous experience of managing external capital. Vinge has a full-service fund offering, which means that in addition to project management, drafting and negotiation of agreements with investors, we provide advice in relation to taxation, structural and regulatory issues which are central elements of the fund formation process.
Following completion of the fundraising, Vinge provides advice throughout the entire term of the fund. We provide ongoing advice in conjunction with, inter alia, contractual amendments, fund‑related tax issues, interpretation issues and ensure that undertakings in the fund documentation are implemented in the underlying investment operations.
Vinge also provides advice for different types of liquidity solutions for fund managers and investors such as, for example, transfer of fund interests by way of secondaries transactions and the establishment of continuation vehicles.
With extensive experience from representing institutions, our dedicated fund team provides advice to investors in connection with investments in Swedish and foreign private equity funds and other fund-like structures. What distinguishes the advice that we provide is that we familiarise ourselves with the client’s position and take into account aspects such as relative size, negotiation position and market terms for the segment in which the relevant fund manager is operating, in order to thereby prioritise the issues that have the greatest practical significance to the client during the negotiation process.
