For the second consecutive year Vinge has been named best Swedish law firm in the Client Choice Awards presented by the International Law Office, ILO, in 46 jurisdictions. The Client Choice Awards identify international law firms that stand apart for their client care and quality of services.

Our motto is to ensure that out clients’ business transactions are successful, says Michael Wigge, Partner in Charge of Vinge Stockholm.

The nominated law firms were assessed on a number of criteria: the quality of the legal advice; value for money; commercial awareness; effective communication; billing transparency; tailored fee structures; depth of knowledge; response time; sharing of expertise and use of technology.

- A fantastic ally to have. I can’t imagine using another firm in Sweden, is a comment from one of the participants in ILO’s survey.
