Vinge advises HH Ferries

September 21, 2018

Vinge has advised HH Ferries in an action before the EU General Court in Luxembourg in state aid proceedings which primarily relate to state guarantees.

The General Court approved HH Ferries’ action due to, among other things, the European Commission’s deficient review of the amount and time limits as well as the support measures’ proportionality and necessity and thus set aside the European Commission’s decision. 

Vinge’s team primarily consisted of Martin Johansson at the Brussels office as well as Rikard Azelius and Pär Remnelid at the Skåne office.

Torbjörn Jacobsson, whose background includes, among other things, head of risk in the banking sector, has been recruited to lead the group as a senior specialist in relation to issues concerning financial risks and capital requirements.

Sweden proposes a new law on investment screening which will have significant implications for transactions

Contrary to the situation in many other countries, there are currently only limited possibilities to regulate or prevent foreign direct investments in Sweden that could entail risks to Swedish security interests. Existing regulatory frameworks, such as the Protective Security Act (Sw. Säkerhetsskyddslagen), are limited to certain areas, to certain activities and to specific situations. The final report of the Inquiry of foreign direct investments (Sw. Granskning av utländska direktinvesteringar), published on 1 November 2021, puts forward a proposal for new legislation to address this gap.
