March 30, 2017

Vinge is happy to announce that it has received the award European Women in Business Law - Sweden for 2014. Vinge was given the same award in 2011 and this award follows previous wins in 2014 of the Chambers & Partners award Sweden Law Firm of the Year, the IFLR Swedish Law Firm of the Year and Managing Intellectual Property’s IP Law Firm of the Year.

Managing Partner Maria-Pia Hope received the award together with colleagues Ingela Malmborg and Anna Palmérus at a ceremony held in London on June 18. “I am excited about how the first half of 2014 has panned out. The various prestigious awards that we have received in recent months are an important stamp of recognition, but even more important is the recognition and support that we get from our existing and new clients. This spring has shown a real comeback in market activity in Sweden and as a firm, with all hands on deck, we’ve been able to capitalize on this,” says Maria-Pia Hope, MP at Vinge.

The fourth annual European Women in Business Law Awards are organized by Euromoney Legal Media Group and International Financial Law Review (IFLR). The awards are given to the best firms and individuals based on research and submissions.

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.
