Vinge named best Swedish law firm

September 28, 2006

Vinge has been named best Swedish law firm by International Law Office, who issues the prestigious Client Choice Award every year.

Vinge's CEO Bertil Hult received the award at a formal prize ceremony in Chicago in September in conjunction with the annual conference of the International Bar Association. The prize highlights the law firm's ability to understand and meet the needs of clients. The offices in the respective countries were chosen based on surveys among clients around the world. Just over 1000 corporate lawyers participated in this year's survey.

The clients get to rate the law offices they have worked with during the past 18 months based on the following criteria: the quality of the legal advice, value for price, business awareness, communication, customized solutions, depth of knowledge, efficiency and use of technology.

-Having the highest ranking for the Client Choice Award from the International Law Office is very important since it is based on our own clients' assessments and shows how we, as a law office, can contribute to their businesses, says Bertil Hult, CEO of Vinge in Stockholm.

The International Law Office, ILO, is a knowledge-based company that issues 35 international newsletters within various legal specialties. The newsletter has more than 30,000 subscribers including lawyers and attorneys around the world. Other services that ILO offers include a register of over 4000 legal firms and participants, as well as a database of the world's largest legal settlements and which law firms were involved.

Sweden proposes a new law on investment screening which will have significant implications for transactions

Contrary to the situation in many other countries, there are currently only limited possibilities to regulate or prevent foreign direct investments in Sweden that could entail risks to Swedish security interests. Existing regulatory frameworks, such as the Protective Security Act (Sw. Säkerhetsskyddslagen), are limited to certain areas, to certain activities and to specific situations. The final report of the Inquiry of foreign direct investments (Sw. Granskning av utländska direktinvesteringar), published on 1 November 2021, puts forward a proposal for new legislation to address this gap.
