“We engaged Advokatfirman Vinge and Christian Riddarbo in this transaction due to the firm´s extensive expertise in complex cross-border transactions and in particular working with and for Chinese companies which we understand often require experience of Chinese business structures, decision-making processes and specific legal considerations.”, said Kristofer Westergren, former shareholder and resigning Chairman of Sharkmob.
