January 18, 2010

Vinge performed more M&A transactions last year than any other law firm in the Nordic countries according to Mergermarkets annual review of the European markets.

In total, Vinge advised on 40 transactions in 2009. As regards the value of the transactions in the Nordic countries, Vinge was ranked in first place among the Swedish firms with USD 4 052 million which is equivalent to approximately SEK 29 billion. The number of European transactions in 2009 was approximately half compared to the record year 2008.

"It is gratifying to note that Vinge, in the midst of the most severe economic downturn, was not only able to withstand these pressures successfully but also to perform so many transactions despite the collapse of M&A related deals. This demonstrates our strength and confirms our position as the leading transaction firm in Sweden and the Nordic countries", says Michael Vigge, Vinge's Managing Partner.
