Vinge advises PulPac in conjunction with investment

November 18, 2022

Vinge has advised PulPac AB in connection with an investment in the aggregate amount of MEUR 31 from strategic partners Aliaxis, Stora Enso, Amcor Ventures and Teseo Capital. Existent owners, including cornerstone investor WPP, have also participated in the equity raise.

PulPac has developed a way to manufacture materials and products similar to plastics including, among other things, packaging, using paper as a raw material instead of plastic, so-called Dry Molded Fiber, in a process which requires far less water than previous methods. The company was founded in 2018, employs approximately 70 people and is based in Gothenburg.

Vinge’s team primarily consisted of Kristian Ford, Sofie Nordgren, Carl Trolle Olsson, Lisa Bourghardt and Karin Gynnerstedt.

The Legal 500 has now introduced a dedicated chapter on tax disputes in its comparative guide for the first time and Ulrika Bengtsson, advokat and counsel, has been selected to provide a clear picture of the Swedish tax litigation system.

The wide reach of the prohibition against circumventing EU sanctions

Against the background of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the EU has imposed a number of sanctions, which include a prohibition for companies within the EU to take certain measures in relation to Russia, as well as designated Russian people and entities on the sanction lists. Furthermore, a prohibition to circumvent the sanctions has been introduced in order to ensure that the sanctions are effective also in practice. When it comes to this circumvention prohibition, it is important to be aware of its wide interpretation, as established by the Court of Justice of the European Union and the European Commission.
