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!” "
