News Vinge Named Best Law Firm in Sweden

May 21, 2010

Chambers has awarded Vinge the title of Best Law Firm in Sweden. The award was based not only on Vinge’s knowledge and expertise within its core practice areas but also on the firm’s achievements last year as well as strategic growth and excellent recommendations from clients.

The assessment included Vinge’s assignment for the Swedish government in connection with the re-regulation of the Swedish pharmacy market and Vinge’s advice to the Swedish National Debt Office in connection with the sale of Saab to Spyker. In addition, Vinge’s advice in connection with the SEK 19 billion restructuring of the Monier Group, a world leading supplier of roofing materials, was also taken into account as part of the assessment.

The British publisher and ranking institute Chambers and Partners interviewed both clients and competitors and questions were posed concerning the level of expertise and service level of the nominee firms.

In the European guide, Vinge received the award for Best Law Firm and was ranked in first place in the following areas: Banking & Finance, Capital Markets, Competition/European Law, Corporate M&A, Employment, Private Equity, Real Estate, Shipping and TMT. In the global guide, Vinge achieved first place in four out of five areas; Banking & Finance, Capital Markets, Corporate M&A and Restructuring and Insolvency.

“It is particularly gratifying to receive this award especially when one considers that 2009 was a very difficult year for the legal services industry. It is also gratifying to know that our clients gave us the highest recommendations for service and client accommodation,” says Michael Wigge, who accepted the prize in London on Thursday evening together with partner Maria-Pia Midenbäck Hope.

“This prize goes to everyone working at Vinge – it will encourage us to be even better at what we do covering the entire spectrum from administration to legal advice so that we can give our clients an even better service,” says Michael Wigge.

Vinge also received this award in 2008.
