Vinge partner – Super Talent of the Year

January 27, 2011

Odile Fallenius, newly-appointed partner at Vinge who specialises in tax law, has received the Super Talent of the Year award by the business magazine, Veckans Affärer. Odile Fallenius from Vinge was ranked in first place of the 101 “Super Talents” chosen each year by Veckans Affärer.

She is Sweden’s highest ranked super talent and one of the youngest partners in the corporate M&A field. She specialises in tax advice in connection with private equity related M&A transactions. However, in her view it is not the tax law advice which is most important but rather how the advice can be applied to the company in order to get the deal through.

This is the fourth year in which Veckans Affärer has selected 101 super talents who are presented as Sweden’s new elite. Odile Fallenius is a partner at Vinge who specialises in tax law. The International Tax Review has referred to her as one of Sweden’s best tax advisers and she has also been selected as one of Sweden’s rising talents by the career network, Shortcut.

Vinge presents the Swedish chapter for the 2022 version of The Legal 500: Private Equity Country Comparative Guide

The guide provides an overview of the Swedish Private Equity market and the salient legislation in connection with PE transactions in Sweden.

The prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings

On Tuesday 21 December, the EU Court of Justice delivered its long-awaited judgment in the Bank Melli Iran case (Case C-124/20) on the interpretation of the EU Blocking Statute regarding compliance with third country sanctions. According to the Court, the prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings. Following the Court’s judgment, anyone seeking to terminate a contract with a person or business subject to US sanctions must thoroughly consider if the termination is motivated by other reasons than the existing sanctions and reflect on whether to apply to the Commission for a derogation from the Blocking Statute.
