For the eighth year in a row, the Swedish Bar Association has issued the award for outstanding achievements within the legal profession. In 2019, the award goes to Maria-Pia Hope, Managing Partner at Advokatfirman Vinge.
Vinge has appointed Helena Brännvall and Ulrika Bengtsson as counsel.
Vinge’s IP Group has once again been top-ranked by several leading ranking institutes within the area, now IAM 1000, MIP IP Stars as well as WTR Global.
For the seventh time – sixth time in a row – Vinge has won the award as the law firm in Sweden which has been most successful in relation to its gender equality work.
Vinge has received the highest ranking within14 of 17 categories in Legal 500’s ranking list which was published recently.
Vinge Gothenburg has appointed Anna Palmérus as the new Managing Partner.
On Thursday, 7 March 2019, Vinge received the prestigious award - Sweden Trade Mark Contentious Firm of the Year 2019 at a ceremony in London.
“She is the CEO of one of the country’s largest law firms with approximately SEK 1 billion in turnover and which was responsible for most M&A transactions last year by far. Her firm also often ends up at the top of the rankings when law students are asked to nominate their preferred future employers.” These were the stated reasons for Vinge CEO Maria-Pia Hope’s inclusion in Veckans Affärer’s list of Sweden’s most powerful women.
Vinge has strengthened and developed the IP practice group by recruiting three sector specialists – intellectual property law postdoctoral researcher Stojan Arnerstål, senior IP lawyer Sofia Ljungblad and paralegal Kerstin Lagercrantz.
The firm has won three awards within several practice areas. Not least in Chambers Global, Vinge is top ranked in five of six categories.
After several red-hot years, expectations were that there would be a decline in activity. Instead, in an interview in Dagens Industri, Vinge’s Christina Kokko describes an M&A market which is hotter than ever.
Vinge’s IP practice group has won two awards at the IAM/WTR Global IP Awards. Vinge was awarded both Swedish Patent Litigation Firm of the Year and Swedish Trademark Litigation Firm of the Year.
Vinge has distinguished itself this year once again in the IFLR’s “Guide to the World’s Leading Financial Law Firms”, which is an annual ranking of the World’s leading law firms.
Carl Wetter, one of the Nordic region’s most experienced lawyers within EU and competition law, is joining Vinge as a Senior Advisor.
IAM Patent 1000 recently released its rankings for 2018 and Vinge is top-ranked within the categories of transactions and dispute resolution.
