Maria-Pia Hope among Sweden’s most powerful businesswomen 2019.

March 08, 2019 About the firm

“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.

As the only lawyer in the list of the most powerful business women, Maria-Pia Hope, Vinge’s CEO, stands out amongst Sweden’s most prominent corporate leaders and experts. Traditionally, relatively few women have concentrated upon a career within business law. 

“I am very honoured over my inclusion in the list. The diversity work is central for Vinge since we know that it generates a better service. It is particularly encouraging that now, after several years’ work, we have a talent pool at senior level which is equivalent to what it looks like when we recruit. We have never had more women and never had a higher turnover. Women stay at Vinge – you can see that it pays off,” says Maria-Pia Hope.

The percentage of female partners at Vinge is now 25 per cent, in 2015 it was 18 per cent. At both junior and senior level, 58 per cent of the associates are women. However, for Vinge the ambition is not to merely stay at a balanced composition between the sexes. The diversity work is more general. The desire is to create more dynamic teams and to have more innovative forces within the operations. This requires an organization where the employees are permitted, and are given the opportunity, to be themselves and which is represented by people of different ages with varied backgrounds, experience and personalities.
