April 23, 2021

The award, Chambers Europe Award for Excellence – Sweden Law Firm of the Year 2021, is one of the foremost awards a Swedish law firm can receive. Vinge has previously received the award on four occasions.

Maria-Pia Hope, Managing Partner: 

"We are extremely proud and happy to receive this award, not least in light of the challenges over the last year."

Chambers Europe Award for Excellence assesses a law firm’s strength and successes in important practice areas, strategic growth, feedback from the market as well as market leading client matters.

"The award mirrors Vinge’s real strength. Due to the firm’s size, we offer both depth and breadth which enables us to undertake large, complex engagements spanning a large number of legal areas. Working toward innovation and continuously breaking new ground together with our clients constitutes the focus of our work. Primarily, however, the award is founded on a fantastic team effort by our committed colleagues and an excellent co-operation with our clients in a period when most things have been turned upside down and flexibility has become the new watchword."

Chambers & Partners:

"Highlighted as “one of the most established law firms in Scandinavia” and “the go-to firm in the Nordic region,” Vinge boasts unrivalled prowess in Competition/European Law, Corporate/M&A, Corporate Investigations, Dispute Resolution, Employment, Energy & Natural Resources, Insurance, Intellectual Property, Private Equity, Restructuring & Insolvency and Tax. The firm also gains recognition for its growing strength in public procurement mandates. Sources state: “Vinge is widely regarded as a leading firm in Sweden and, as such, always delivers a quality service.” Another interviewee reiterates: “Vinge is one of the best full-service law firms in Scandinavia. It is very experienced in most areas and is good at leveraging on that across the firm – very impressive!” "

COP26 - a step in the right direction to achieve the Paris Agreement goals

On 13 November 2021, the two-week international climate summit COP26, held in Glasgow, UK, was concluded after leaders from over 190 countries agreed on a new deal, the so-called Climate Pact in Glasgow. The aim of COP26 was for leaders from around the world to agree on how to step up global action to tackle the climate crisis. The agreement, which will set the global average temperature increase at between 1.8 and 2.4 degrees Celsius, is a step towards achieving the Paris Agreement's (COP21) more ambitious target of a maximum increase of 1.5 degrees.

The EU Court of Justice dismisses Belgium’s request in Opinion 1/20, but points out that the dispute settlement mechanism of ECT is not applicable to ‘intra-EU disputes’

The Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) is under renegotiation. Its Article 26, which provides a dispute settlement mechanism, has however not been announced as being subject to such renegotiations. On 2 December 2020, Belgium submitted a request to the EU Court of Justice (CJEU) for an opinion on whether the dispute settlement mechanism of the draft ECT, assuming it remains unchanged, could be interpreted as allowing its application intra-European Union, i.e. between an EU Member State and an investor who is a national of another Member State, and whether this would be compatible with the EU Treaties, in particular Article 19 TEU on the role of the CJEU and Article 344 TFEU on the autonomy of EU law.
