By recruiting an external CEO, Vinge Stockholm is making a strategic investment in order to improve the ability to meet future demands. We are very happy that we have been able to recruit such a strong leader and I am convinced that Bertil Hult will be a great asset to Vinge’s continued development as the leading business law advisor, Bertil Villard continues.

- I am looking forward to working with my new colleagues at Vinge  during a time of exciting challenges, says Bertil Hult. The ambition will be to maintain and strengthen Vinge’s market position over the long term.

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.
