Vinge has acted as lead counsel to the lead investors CPP Investments (CPPIB) and Fidelity Management & Research Company LLC in connection with the financing round.

 

Kry will use the investment to scale its platform, building on both its operations as a healthcare provider and its innovative software offerings as well as further geographic expansion. This will bring the benefits of its technology to millions more patients across Europe. Kry, which has been growing rapidly since it was founded in 2015, has helped over three million patients access healthcare to date.

 

The company grew over 100% year-on-year in 2020 in response to supporting patients and healthcare systems across Europe during the pandemic. The new funding will help the company meet the increasing patient demand for their virtual healthcare services and fulfil its vision of making high-quality healthcare accessible for all.

 

Vinge’s team included partners Johan Larsson and Matthias Pannier, together with Karl Klackenberg, Michaela Cronemyr and Carl Fredrik Wachtmeister (M&A), Mathilda Persson and Karl-Hugo Engdahl (IT & Data Protection) and Sara Strandberg (Employment).  

Vinge authors the Swedish contribution regarding tax disputes for The Legal 500

International companies run the risk of the erroneous management of tax issues when conducting operations in several jurisdictions. In such event, disputes can arise with the relevant tax authorities. 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.
