Vinge’s IP practice top ranked in IAM Patent 1000’s 2014 edition

March 30, 2017

Vinge’s IP practice continues to gain momentum and has recently been top ranked in the 2014 edition of IAM Patent 1000.

In the recently released edition, Vinge is listed as a recommended firm within both transactions and litigation. In addition, colleagues Håkan Borgenhäll and Ulf Dahlgren are listed as top ranked individuals within Litigation (Håkan Borgenhäll and Ulf Dahlgren) and Transactions (Ulf Dahlgren).

These recognitions follow the prestigious award IP Law Firm of the Year 2014 by Managing Intellectual Property, that Vinge received earlier this year.

The IAM Patent 1000 – The World’s Leading Patent Practitioners guide is published by Intellectual Asset Management and identifies top patent practitioners in key jurisdictions around the globe. Over five months, IAM conducted more than 1500 interviews with attorneys-at-law, patent attorneys and in-house counsel to gather market intelligence on the leading players in the field. Individuals qualify based on their exceptional skills and in-depth insight into patent matters and firms qualify on the basis of their depth of expertise, market presence and level of work.

New statute prohibits unfair terms and conditions and practices in conjunction with the purchase of agricultural and food products

The so-called UTP Act prohibits buyers from using certain terms and conditions and practices against suppliers of agricultural and food products. The Swedish Competition Authority exercises supervision and can, among other things, carry out unannounced inspections and order individual to attend formal interviews. In conjunction with violations, sanctions such as injunctions subject to a default fine or a sanction fee of up to one per cent of the buyer’s annual turnover can be imposed. The UTP Act will enter into force on 1 November 2021 and will also be applicable to contracts which are entered into prior to this date.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
