May 28, 2008

ISI Wissing has conducted a study with the industry’s decision-makers to rank the best Swedish enterprises out of 303 Swedish companies. Vinge was named best law firm in Sweden as well as the country’s fifteenth best enterprise.

Of all law firms that were included in this year’s inquiry Vinge was elected as the law firm that has improved its image the most. Vinge’s overall assessment came to 37. The average assessment for law firms is 19. Over the last few years Vinge’s assessment has only come to increase; 2006 Vinge’s rank came to 26, last year it had risen to 33 and 2008 it is 37.  

Vinge was also recognised as the best-known law firm and awarded with the assessment of 53 for skill; the average number within the industry is 23. Moreover Vinge received the assessment “above satisfactory” or “satisfactory” performer of 61 percent of the decision-makers.

Vinge possesses the qualities that were recognised as the most important within the industry, namely; quality, service, dependability and trademark. But also categories such as future prospects and company web page put Vinge high up in the ranking order. Vinge came in a low position concerning market communication. 

Vinge was also placed as number 15 in the ranking of the country’s top 20 enterprises. IKEA was placed at the top together with SAS Radisson, Sandvik and Nokia. Last year Vinge was ranked 18th and in 2006 Vinge received the 39th position.

- We have put focus on linking our trademark with top quality performance. We also want our services to be easily recognisable to our clients and this study has proved that our efforts to do so have led to results, says Michael Wigge, Managing Director at Vinge.

- Now is not the time to sit back and enjoy these results but to continue on this path and become even better legal advisors to our clients, Michael Wigge continues to say.

The study was conducted between January and March and it is based on responses from 614 persons in management teams in Swedish companies that contain more then fifty employees.
