Vinge climbs to first place - leading within real estate law

September 26, 2014

Vinge is ranked in first place the annual review of the leading real estate lawyers in Sweden. The transactions in which Vinge has been involved include Kungsleden’s acquisition of GE’s properties where Vinge represented GE in the largest individual transaction. This is followed by Trygg-Hansa’s sale of its head office on Kungsholmen in Stockholm.

“We are happy that we have achieved first place and this reinforces Vinge’s position as one of the leading real estate transaction advisers. We noticed that the market remained relatively buoyant during the year and the demand for our services has thus remained high. However, one area of uncertainty is the effects of the general election and what consequences this will have on the market,” says Patrick Forslund, partner at Vinge.  

Vinge presents the Swedish chapter for the 2022 version of The Legal 500: Private Equity Country Comparative Guide

The guide provides an overview of the Swedish Private Equity market and the salient legislation in connection with PE transactions in Sweden.

According to the Court, the prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings. Following the Court’s judgment, anyone seeking to terminate a contract with a person or business subject to US sanctions must thoroughly consider if the termination is motivated by other reasons than the existing sanctions and reflect on whether to apply to the Commission for a derogation from the Blocking Statute.
