Professor Ramberg starts at Vinge

February 19, 2007

Christina Ramberg, professor of commercial law, is starting at Vinge Gothenburg on 1 February 2007.

Christina Ramberg has been a law professor in Gothenburg since 1998 and has also been a professor at Tulane University (New Orleans), University of Utrecht and the Stockholm School of Economics. She has published many books and articles on commercial law in Sweden and internationally. On February 1, Christina Ramberg will start working at Vinge's Gothenburg office.
"I have always been curious about the legal profession, and I am happy to have the opportunity to have direct contact with clients. Now I can find out if my research is relevant in the practical world. Working at Vinge is also particularly special for me since both my father and grandfather worked at Vinge," says Christina Ramberg.

In addition to research, Christian Ramberg is also an arbitrator for Swedish and international arbitration cases and on the board of directors of several large Swedish firms. She has also served as a judge in the court of appeal.

"In Sweden, it is common for lawyers to become professors, but it is very rare for a professor to become a lawyer. We have been seeing a clear trend toward niche expertise within the legal profession for some years now. Clients are becoming increasingly dependent on law offices that include many lawyers with specialized expertise in many fields. That Vinge is now recruiting a professor demonstrates the culmination of this trend. Christina Ramberg's background as a professor, author, judge, arbitrator, expert and board member is perfect for us and our clients," says Olof Jisland, Managing Partner for Vinge in Gothenburg.

Renewable energy – The Council agrees on a temporary emergency regulation

In the beginning of November, the European Commission put forward a proposal regarding a framework to accelerate the deployment of renewable energy, with the ambition to speed up the transition to green energy and reduce the EU’s dependency on Russian fossil fuels. In line with the conclusions of the European Council at the end of October, the European Commission considers that the ongoing energy crisis requires immediate action to transpose parts of the REPowerEU plan, and therefore proposes to adopt a Council Regulation using Article 122(1) of the Treaty of the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as legal basis.
