VINGE ADVISES NOBINA IN STATE AID COMPLAINT TO THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION

January 20, 2015

Vinge is advising Nobina in a state aid matter where the European Commission has decided to initiate a formal investigation procedure. The matter pertains to potential unlawful state aid to Helsinki Region Transport (Sw. Helsingfors Busstrafik). The Commission’s investigation has been prompted by a complaint from Nobina and relates to several different types of state aid including, inter alia, beneficial loans on terms and conditions and at interest rates which are better than those which are normally available on the financial markets.

Vinge’s team consists of responsible partner Martin Johansson and associate Ina Lunneryd.
