Vinge employs additional antitrust economists to further strengthen its practice

September 30, 2021

We welcome Adam Löfquist and Carl Widstrand to our EU, Competition & Regulatory practice group.

Adam holds a Master of Science in Engineering within Industrial Engineering and Management from Lund University and has previously interned at Vinge as a Competition Analyst. Carl will join as a Junior Economist following the completion of his studies at the Stockholm School of Economics.

Johan Karlson, partner and head of the practice group:

“These recruitments further strengthen our practice and improve our service offering, particularly within competition law, dispute resolution and public procurement. Our in-house economist team now comprises four qualified economists led by Jakob Jeanrond. This directly benefits our clients.”

Economic expertise is essential for a full-service offering and a necessity in complex competition law cases. These include mergers, co-operation and other agreements, cartel investigations or abuse of dominance cases, but also cover strategic advice in relation to for instance pricing strategies. Economic expertise is also crucial for calculations of damages, for developing economic evidence in various disputes featuring damages claims, as well as for the preparation of public procurement tenders and possible ensuing appeals.
