Glader new head of Vinge Brussels

March 31, 2009


Marcus Glader will become resident partner of Vinge’s Brussels office effective April 1, 2009. Glader, 36 years old, is a doctor of civil law, with broad academic and practical experience in the field of competition law. Since 2005, he has practised competition and EC law with Cleary Gottlieb Steen & Hamilton LLP in Brussels. Vinge Brussels currently has 6 employees and advises clients on competition law and general EC law.

Vinge is strengthening its presence in Brussels with the recruitment of Marcus Glader. Vinge was the first Swedish law firm to establish itself in Brussels and the office will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year. 

“Marcus Glader is a very valuable addition to our competition law practice. We are the leading competition law firm in Sweden and we now reinforce that position even further,” said Carl Wetter, head of Vinge’s competition and EC law department. 

Carl Wetter continued: “We have recruited a person with deep theoretical knowledge combined with broad practical experience, not least from high-tech industries such as pharmaceuticals and telecoms. Marcus Glader will also contribute specific competence in the focus area of competition and intellectual property law, which we see as a very important field of law.”

 “I am very pleased to be joining Vinge. I enjoyed my work with Cleary very much. But I look forward to renewing my ties with Sweden and Scandinavia and becoming a part of Vinge, which is recognized as a first class law firm with a leading competition law practice. This opportunity offers a new and very interesting role for me,” said Marcus Glader.

COP26 - a step in the right direction to achieve the Paris Agreement goals

On 13 November 2021, the two-week international climate summit COP26, held in Glasgow, UK, was concluded after leaders from over 190 countries agreed on a new deal, the so-called Climate Pact in Glasgow. The aim of COP26 was for leaders from around the world to agree on how to step up global action to tackle the climate crisis. The agreement, which will set the global average temperature increase at between 1.8 and 2.4 degrees Celsius, is a step towards achieving the Paris Agreement's (COP21) more ambitious target of a maximum increase of 1.5 degrees.

The EU Court of Justice dismisses Belgium’s request in Opinion 1/20, but points out that the dispute settlement mechanism of ECT is not applicable to ‘intra-EU disputes’

The Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) is under renegotiation. Its Article 26, which provides a dispute settlement mechanism, has however not been announced as being subject to such renegotiations. On 2 December 2020, Belgium submitted a request to the EU Court of Justice (CJEU) for an opinion on whether the dispute settlement mechanism of the draft ECT, assuming it remains unchanged, could be interpreted as allowing its application intra-European Union, i.e. between an EU Member State and an investor who is a national of another Member State, and whether this would be compatible with the EU Treaties, in particular Article 19 TEU on the role of the CJEU and Article 344 TFEU on the autonomy of EU law.
