Vinge best within M&A

July 12, 2011

Vinge performed more M&A transactions than any other law firm in the Nordic countries according to Mergermarkets half year report of the European markets. Vinge also climbed from thirtieth to first place in the buyouts league table (investments from Private Equity firms).

In total, Vinge advised on 29 transactions during the first six months of 2011. As regards the value of the transactions in the Nordic countries, Vinge was ranked in first place among the Swedish firms with USD 6,051 million, which is equivalent to approximately SEK 36 billion. Vinge is also the firm in Europe that tops the league table for buyouts with USD 5,197 million. This table tracks transactions where Private Equity firms are buyers. The number of European transactions during this first six months was approximately in line with the same period last year.

"It is gratifying to note that Vinge has once again demonstrated it’s strength and confirms our position as the leading transaction firm in Sweden and the Nordic countries", says Michael Wigge, Vinge's Managing Partner. In addition, the fact that Vinge has a strong position on the buyout market shows our strength as a partner to the larger Private Equity firms in the Nordic countries. It also shows that the transaction market is more intense in the Nordic countries at the moment than in Europe in general.
