News Viveka Classon strengthens Vinge’s Insurance Offering

June 15, 2017 About the firm Career

Vinge has now expanded its competence within insurance law by employing Viveka Classon, former general counsel at Skandia. Viveka joins Vinge as a counsel in the newly-formed practice group Corporate Insurance, where she will work together with, among others, partners Fabian Ekeblad and Per Johan Eckerberg. 

Viveka Classon has been working over the course of the last year as a legal consultant at Kompass Advokat. In addition, she has considerable experience working as in-house counsel at Skandia, where she was general counsel for six years and a member of group management and secretary of Skandia’s board of directors.

Fabian Ekeblad, head of the practice group Corporate Insurance: “Financial companies are exposed to a tidal wave of new and complex rules, often driven by the European Union wishing to harmonize the statutory framework for the member states. From our perspective, Viveka has unique experience and contacts by having worked in a central position at a large financial enterprise. We believe that this will allow us to acquire an even greater understanding of our clients within insurance and the financial sector in general and further strengthen our leading position within insurance law.

Viveka Classon will start at Vinge’s Stockholm office on 1 September 2017.
