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 European Commission proposes a new Single Market Emergency Instrument

On 19 September 2022, the Commission adopted a proposal for a new regulation on an emergency instrument for the Single Market. Following the Covid-19 pandemic and other crises in the last years, the Union has seen internal entry restrictions, unpredictable rules and supply disruptions which, according to the Commission, have highlighted that there are structural shortcomings in the EU legal framework on the Single Market. The proposed emergency instrument aims to preserve the free movement of goods, services and persons and to ensure the availability of essential goods and services in the event of future emergencies.
