Vinge's insurance group strengthens its industry expertise

February 19, 2007

Per Brandt, former chief legal officer at Trygg-Hansa, joins Vinge's insurance group.

In order to strengthen the industry expertise of Vinge's insurance group, Per Brandt, previously employed at Trygg-Hansa, has joined forces with Vinge. Per Brandt now runs his own consulting business that targets the insurance industry.

"I am fundamentally an attorney, and it felt natural for me to return to a consulting role after I left Trygg-Hansa. After twelve years at Trygg-Hansa, the last eight as chief legal officer, I have a very good insight into the legal firms that the insurance industry works with, and working with Vinge seems like a natural choice," says Per Brandt.

Apart from the core areas of insurance law – regulations and contracts – Vinge's insurance group works on a broad front. The key issues for the industry, such as mergers and acquisitions, resolving disputes, IT, labour law and taxes are handled by employees with special experience in insurance assignments.

"When we started the insurance group at Vinge we saw that the insurance industry was asking for lawyers who were prepared to work in a business-oriented and industry-oriented manner, and who were not just locked into certain topic areas.  Per Brandt represents solid industry expertise, business-oriented behaviour and integrity. By working with Per, we can strengthen our expertise in the field of insurance," says Per Johan Eckerberg, who together with Peter Morawetz, manages the insurance group at Vinge in Stockholm.

Over the years, Vinge's insurance group has been engaged in a number of the insurance industry's large structuring deals. In addition, Vinge represents a large number of Swedish and foreign insurance companies in routine matters. 

In addition to Vinge's own attorneys and Per Brant,  the consultant Håkan Wunderman is also a part of the insurance group. Håkan Wunderman has been the government's one-man investigator for much of the industry's fundamental legislation, such as the law regarding foreign insurance businesses.
