Vinge is advising Air Liquide Santé International in connection with its acquisition of NordicInfu Care AB. Air Liquide Santé International is Europe’s leading and the world’s third largest company within home healthcare and provides treatment for patients with chronic diseases, such as Parkinson, COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and diabetes.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
