May 12, 2020

Vinge has been awarded the highest ranking by both Chambers and Legal 500 in their recently released rankings.

The team according to the ranking institutes

Chambers and Partners’ rankings cover several client statements. In such statements, Vinge’s clients describe Vinge as follows:

"Vinge was an excellent partner with very reliable and specific advice for both the strategy and actual execution of the project." Another client stated how the team "has very good knowledge and a commercial perspective." (Chambers and Partners 2020)

The availability and provision of services is very good and of high quality. Vinge is always available for the client when we require services.– Chambers and Partners  

In Legal 500 one client states "I have trusted them with very qualified issues over the past years and they never disappoint."

The ranking institute further states "The team is highly qualified in the field and is able to combine high‑level legal advice with a pragmatic approach, which makes the services useful without much extra work for me as in‑house counsel." 

"Very flexible and good at adapting their services to our needs, but at the same time careful about having a clear agreement about the scope of the assignment." (Legal 500, 2020)

Vinge is one of two Swedish law firms whose maritime and transport team is ranked as Tier 1 by Legal 500, as well as one of three law firms in Sweden whose maritime and transport team is ranked by Chambers and Partners.

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.
