Vinge’s team primarily consisted of responsible partner Anders Strid, Daniel Lennartsson (M&A) and Alexander Lindeberg (IP). Noerr through, among others, responsible partner Dr. Holger Alfes, acted as local counsel in Germany.
 

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
