News Vinge strengthens its expertise within environment legislation

March 21, 2007

Environment legislation is an important and growing aspect within business and commerce, both nationally and internationally, and thereby also an important field for Vinge. In order to address the increasing need for legal advice regarding the environment, Vinge has recruited Agnes Larfeldt Alvén, who is an expert on environment legislation.

Agnes Larfeldt Alvén, a lawyer specialised in environment and water legislation, will become partner on 1 July at Vinge's Gothenburg office. Agnes Larfeldt Alvén has substantial experience within environment legislation, particularly with regard to the consideration of permits for environmentally hazardous activities and water-related operations. Agnes Larfeldt Alvén is a member of the Swedish Association for Environment Law, and is also a member of the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise's Reference Group for Environment Legislation. She is initiator of the Swedish Forum for Water Legislation. Agnes Larfeldt Alvén comes from the Mannheimer Swartling law firm in Stockholm where she has practised since 1998.

"In view of there being few experts within environment legislation in the Gothenburg market, our recruitment of Agnes Larfeldt Alvén is a strategic move. With her expertise, Agnes Larfeldt Alvén will also be a welcome addition to Vinge's environment legislation group that is currently composed of ten people located at our various offices," says Olof Jisland, managing partner at Vinge's Gothenburg office.
