November 20, 2006

Vinge has recruited Martin Johansson from the European Court of Justice in Luxembourg. Martin will join Vinge’s office in Brussels as from November 2006. Through the recruitment Vinge will strengthen its capabilities in EU litigation.

Martin Johansson, 46, has a unique competence. For the past eleven years, he has served as a legal secretary at the EFTA Court, the European Court of First Instance and the European Court of Justice for judges Sven Norberg, Pernilla Lindh, Leif Sevón and, most recently, Stig von Bahr. Before that he worked at the EFTA Court, the EFTA Secretariat, as well as law firms in Sweden and Brussels.

Top Ranked in Sweden

Vinge’s EU and antitrust team is ranked number one in Sweden in e.g. Chambers’ latest edition of The World’s Leading Lawyers.

- We are very pleased that Martin Johansson will join Vinge. Martin’s knowledge in EU litigation will further expand and strengthen our EU and antitrust practice. Martin’s contacts with the EU and Swedish institutions will also be highly valuable for our clients as well as for Vinge, says Hans Wibom, chairman of the board of Vinge.

Olle Rislund leaves

Olle Rislund left Vinge on October 1. During the past years Olle Rislund has been resident partner at Vinge’s Brussels office. He will now return to Sweden and join Advokatfirman Cederquist as a partner.

- We would like to thank Olle for his valuable work for Vinge in Stockholm and Brussels, says Hans Wibom.

Vinge’s EU and antitrust team consists of 25 lawyers based in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Brussels. The office in Brussels was established already in 1989. The team is headed by Carl Wetter. Johan Karlsson is responsible partner in Stockholm, whereas Björn Nicolai and Rikard Azelius are responsible partners in Gothenburg and Malmö respectively.

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.
