New cooperation between Vinge and Swedish Alpine Ski Team

February 19, 2007

Vinge and the Swedish national alpine ski team have entered into cooperation where Vinge is a partner for contributing legal advice.

"Swedish alpine skiing is of great interest now that the World Championships in Åre are in full swing and the Swedes have already had great success. Naturally, this make the cooperation even more fun at the moment. Our cooperation with the national alpine ski team provides an up close look at the everyday world behind the few minutes when we see skiers perform in competitions, and it will give us an understanding of the operations that are the basis of the national team's performance," says Bertil Hult at Vinge.

The legal aspects of the Swedish Ski Association are expanding every day and becoming increasingly complex. The Swedish Ski Association is subject to the rules of the International Ski Federation (Fédération Internationale de Ski), and they also have legal agreements with suppliers and other cooperative partners.

"For us, the most important thing is to work with a leading law office, since the legal aspects of our business cover several areas both in Sweden and internationally. With Vinge we get a partner that has the ability to see and evaluate both the business and legal opportunities as well as the risks in the business. The cooperation brings us a step closer to the Swedish Ski Association's vision of becoming a leading skiing nation in 2010," says Johan Monsén, Head of Alpine Skiing for the Swedish Ski Association.

Vinge has had a skier's spirit since Vinge was "born" in the early 1980s, and many of Vinge's employees have a great personal interest in downhill skiing.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
