Vinge strengthens tax law group with new partner

June 01, 2010

Vinge has strengthened its tax law practice group with one of Sweden’s leading tax advisers. Odile Fallenius has become a partner at Vinge and will be joined by her team of three associates from Linklaters.

The transition will take place in phases. Odile Fallenius will start work at Vinge in February next year following her maternity leave. The three associates Lina Hansson, Tora Hansjons and Paul Dali will start at Vinge following the expiration of their notice periods at Linklaters.

Odile Fallenius has brought her colleagues with her from Linklaters, which was recently awarded the title of Sweden’s Best Tax Advisers by the well-renowned publication, International Tax Review.

“It really is going to be interesting to start at Vinge and work with their tax group. The experience gained from working at Linklaters has given me this possibility to progress in my career. I am looking forward to starting work at Vinge,” says Odile Fallenius.

“We are very happy that we successfully managed to recruit Odile and her colleagues to Vinge despite fierce competition from other firms. The recruitment will further strengthen our tax group and make Vinge one of the leading tax law firms,” says Michael Wigge, Vinge’s Managing Partner.

Following the recruitment, Vinge’s tax law group consists of approximately 20 lawyers.

The prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings

On Tuesday 21 December, the EU Court of Justice delivered its long-awaited judgment in the Bank Melli Iran case (Case C-124/20) on the interpretation of the EU Blocking Statute regarding compliance with third country sanctions. According to the Court, the prohibition imposed by EU law on complying with secondary sanctions laid down by the United States against Iran may be relied on in civil proceedings. Following the Court’s judgment, anyone seeking to terminate a contract with a person or business subject to US sanctions must thoroughly consider if the termination is motivated by other reasons than the existing sanctions and reflect on whether to apply to the Commission for a derogation from the Blocking Statute.
