Vinge has advised Bilprovningen in connection with the disposal of Besiktningskluster 2 AB and a restructuring of the ownership in Bilprovningen

January 25, 2013

Vinge has advised Aktiebolaget Svensk Bilprovning in connection with the restructuring of the ownership in Bilprovningen and the disposal of Besiktningskluster 2 AB to a consortium comprising the twelve minority shareholders in Bilprovningen. Besiktningskluster 2 AB owns around 1/3 of Bilprovningen’s network of inspection stations with a geographic focus in the south-west of Sweden. The restructuring of the ownership in Bilprovningen will result in the Swedish State becoming the sole owner of Bilprovningen. The disposal and restructuring is part of the reregulation and competition exposure of the Swedish vehicle inspection market. The transaction is subject to, inter alia, accreditation approval.

The Vinge team was led by Carl Gustaf De Geer, Daniel Rosvall and Peter Sundgren and included lawyers from a number of practice areas such as M&A, EU &Antitrust, IT, Employment & Benefits, Real Estate, Intellectual Property and also entailed regulatory issues regarding the motor vehicle inspection legislation.

Extensive amendments to the Swedish Protective Security Act - increased obligations and a comprehensive sanctions system

These changes, which were presented in a Government bill of 18 March 2021, generate new and far-reaching obligations for many companies, especially in view of the severe sanctions that may be imposed if the obligations are not complied with.
