Vinge named best Swedish law firm for second consecutive year

October 11, 2007

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.

This year’s winning law firm was selected based on 1,300 individual evaluations by corporate lawyers. The criteria for receiving this price is the law firm’s ability to satisfy their clients’ needs as well as understanding their clients’ businesses in a better way than their competitors.

- Client Choice Awards are based on our clients’ views about us. This is why it’s very important to us to win again this year. This shows that we contribute value to our clients’ businesses. 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.
