Maria Pia Hope, Managing Partner at Vinge, stands out as one of the few lawyers on the list when Dagens Industri presents its list of the most powerful women in business.
Vinge has won the “Best Swedish Firm for Women in Business Law” award at the Europe Women in Business Law Awards which took place in London on 15 June 2017.
Vinge associate Jasmin Draszka-Ali has been elected as a board member of Transparency International Sweden.
Vinge strengthens its Corporate Risk and Compliance team with the addition of Théo Jaekel a human rights lawyer who specializes in corporate responsibility in order to meet the increased demand for CSR advice.
For the fourth time, Vinge has won the award, European Women in Business Law – Sweden 2016. Vinge won the award for its gender diversity initiatives in the legal profession. Last year, Vinge was the first Swedish law firm to set the goal of having women represent 50 per cent of all newly appointed partners within the next five years.
It is time to alter perspective and focus on concrete measures in relation to CSR issues. Hence, Vinge is now offering advanced training courses to board members in relation to CSR and sustainability issues. The courses will not primarily focus on the value of sustainability work per se but, rather, the practical implementation and follow-up of the work within different types of enterprises which face global challenges.
Vinge has been awarded the European Women in Business Law – Sweden 2015 for the third time. Vinge received the award for its gender diversity initiative within the legal profession. Vinge also received the award in 2011 and 2014.
