Economics expertise to Vinge’s EU, Competition & Regulatory Practice Group

Vinge is increasing its EU, Competition & Regulatory Practice Group with economist Jakob Jeanrond, PhD.

“We are happy to be able to expand our competence by having Jakob join Vinge”, says Johan Karlsson, head of Vinge’s EU, Competition & Regulatory Practice Group. “Economic analysis is fundamental not only in relation to mergers and acquisitions but also within other areas of competition law. Jakob’s background and specialist skills will strengthen our team and service offering to our clients. In his current position, he has played a prominent role in some of the most widely publicized matters over the last few years and he has acted as an expert and adviser in relation to court proceedings.”

Jakob is currently working at the Swedish Competition Authority’s economics division, where he has been working since 2013. Jakob is a specialist and has considerable experience of economic analysis in connection with mergers as well as abuse and cartel issues. The digital economy, e trading, platforms and multi-markets are areas where Jakob has a particular degree of knowledge.

Jakob has an excellent academic background which includes the European University Institute (PhD, 2013), the London School of Economics (MSc, 2008) and Lund University (MSc, 2007). Jakob has also been a guest lecturer at Northwestern University (2012) and Boston University (2010). Jakob joins Vinge in February 2017.

Vinge is a leading law firm in Sweden within EU and competition law. All large Swedish and international publications rank Vinge, and several of its co-workers individually, as number one amongst Swedish and Nordic law firms. Our specialists work at all of our offices in Sweden and in Brussels.
