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.
