Vinge recognised for its gender equality efforts

Vinge won the European Women in Business Law Awards in the category Sweden Law Firm of the year when the International Financial Law Review, IFLR, held a ceremony in London on 29 June.

“Vinge is the first Swedish law firm to receive this award which of course we are very proud of. It is also gratifying to be nominated as opposed to nominating ourselves. I think we won the award because of our gender equality efforts” says Anna Rasin, Vinges head of Marketing and Communications who also participated in the price ceremony.

At Vinge almost 20 percent of the partners are women.

”With this percentage we are actually best in Sweden, even though the number is quite low”, says Anna Rasin.

Nominated by the industry

IFLR, which is a part of the Euromoney Group and, among other things, publishes the IFLR magazine and the IFLR1000, chose the winners after a nomination process where law firms were asked to nominate law firms and key persons that they considered as being in the forefront of gender equality work. Based on these nominations IFLR held interviews with lawyers and clients to select the winners.

In its reasons the IFLR writes: “During this process, Vinge was repeatedly mentioned as a firm which valued and its female lawyers and strived to foster a diverse working environment within the firm, through involvement in schemes such as the diversity project. And it was for that reason that we selected your firm for the award.”

Insurance law and blockage of the Suez Canal

One of the largest container ships in the world is still blocking the Suez Canal, an event which can have significant global consequences. Even Swedish interested parties such as the Port of Gothenburg may also be affected by the situation. The running aground is a clear reminder of the vulnerability of global transport chains, and sheds light on a number of important insurance issues.
