Nova rising stars top rank Vinge

February 22, 2013

Students in the talent network Nova 100 gave Vinge the highest ranking of all law firms in the network. At the same time, one of Vinge’s summer trainees was named Nova of the Year.

Nova Enterprise Ranking is the name given to the survey in which students rank Nova’s member companies and this year’s results were presented at Stockholm City Conference Centre on 18 February during the Nova Forum annual event.

Vinge number one among law firms and in third place in the enterprises category
The result is based on a survey where 248 students in the network answered questions concerning which company made the best impression on them in connection with Nova 100 activities last year. Vinge was ranked in first place among law firms and in third place overall among the 34 companies surveyed.

“It is extremely gratifying that all our work produces results especially amongst this target group of top students” says Vinge’s Managing Partner, Maria Pia Hope, who gave a presentation of Vinge at Nova Forum on 8 October 2012 and 18 February 2013. 

Praise from the students 
Two of the students expressed their opinion in the following terms:

“Inspirational and modern workplace with lots of opportunities for individual development.”

“Strong organisation which really cares about its employees. Organises a lot of training and other activities. They seem to have fun at work.”

Nova of the Year 
Another piece of good news which was presented on 18 February this year is that Samir El-Sabini, who is reading law at the School of Economics at Gothenburg University, won the Nova of the Year award. Samir El-Sabini will be a summer trainee at Vinge’s Stockholm office this summer. This is the eleventh year in which the award has been given to Sweden’s best student. 

“Samir personifies the terms passion, drive and commitment. In addition to successfully competing with other top students within an area which requires high grades, he is also pursuing changes which will benefit all of the country’s students,” says Louise Ramel, who is responsible for Nova 100.
