Private Funds – Vinge forms new practice group for fund formation in Sweden

Historically, private equity firms have often managed their funds from abroad. More recently, there has been a clear reversal of this trend in favour of repatriating the management of funds and establishing funds as Swedish limited companies. Vinge has formed a new Private Funds practice group in order to be in a better position to advise in conjunction with Swedish fund formations.

The European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
