Vinge Swedish law firm of the year

March 19, 2009


The International Financial Law Review (IFLR) has named Vinge Swedish law firm of the year for 2009. Vinge won the prize based in large part on its role in connection with the Swedish government's sale of Vin & Sprit to French Pernod Ricard.

The national prize is greatly valued in the industry, and Vinge's Michael Wigge views the distinction as confirmation that Vinge is on the right track.
“Vinge has won numerous prizes and distinctions over the last year. This prize is further proof that the direction and strategy we have decided on has been successful,” said Vinge, further developing his argument in saying:
“I think that the fact that Vinge has broad expertise and the ability to adapt its operations to fit the times was another important factor in winning the prize.”

International Financial Law Review, or IFLR, which is read and used by lawyers worldwide, named the various winners after conducting interviews with company lawyers and other purchasers of legal services. Each national prize is given to the firm that has provided the very best legal counsel in the transaction field in each respective country. And it is now clear that, in Sweden, that firm is Vinge.

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.
