News Vinge named the Nordic Law firm of the year

December 14, 2007

 Vinge was named the Nordic Law firm of the year, by Financial Times and Merger Market. The selection procedure is a three stage process where an independent jury considers criteria such as the number of business transactions, their sizes and complexities.

Michael Wigge, Managing Partner at Vinge Stockholm, received the price yesterday in London.

- We are very pleased to have received this award. We feel this is an acknowledgement of what we have worked towards for the last few years; to become the best in complex company transactions. Large business transactions such as mergers, acquisitions and sales of companies require high competence and experience, ability to achieve efficient processes and, naturally, a high availability and service.

- We have seen a strong flow of transactions over the last few years, where each transaction is complex and unique and requires various kinds of expertise. This is why our teams are always tailor-made for each transaction.

Financial Times and Merger Market presented these awards for the first time this year. The selection procedure is a three stage process in order to create the greatest possible objectivity. It is based on Merger Market’s M&A transaction data which include the number of transactions and their sizes. A shortlist has been selected where each nominated company has given its references. Finally, an independent panel of thirteen M&A experts has selected the best company by considering a number of factors such as the strategic nature of the deals, the complexity, the financing requirements of each deal and the possible novel nature of the deals. More information of the process and the criteria can be found on http://www.ftmergermarketawards.com.
