April 05, 2013

Charlotte Forssander, advokat and partner of Vinge in Gothenburg has been elected by her fellow partners as the new Managing Partner (MP) for Vinge in Gothenburg. Charlotte replaces Olof Jisland who will be returning to normal partner duties following his nine year tenure as MP in Gothenburg.

“It feels great to be able to hand over the reins to Lotta who I know will perform her duties in an exemplary manner. She has been a member of the local management team for several years and is well acquainted with the managerial tasks which I was required to perform. After nine years as MP, I can look back on an intensive and enjoyable tenure, although it also feels good to be able to devote more time to clients.

I would like to wish her every success in her new role,” says Olof Jisland.

“I am grateful for the faith and confidence placed in me and I will perform my duties with energy and enthusiasm. Speaking personally, Vinge is a firm which, over the years, has managed to retain its entrepreneurial spirit. I think that is one of the keys to success in a changing sector. You have to want and be willing to think along new lines. I find it stimulating to be able to contribute to strengthening Vinge’s position as the most business-oriented law firm on the market,” says Charlotte Forssander.

Charlotte Forssander has been a partner at Vinge in Gothenburg since 2008 and an advokat since 2001. She specialises in employment and labour law. She studied law at Lund University and at the New York School of Law. She worked as an associate for two years at the US firm, O’Melveny & Myers LLP and is also a member of the New York State Bar. Charlotte Forssander has already formally taken over the MP role and will also be included in Vinge’s group management.

European Commission provides sanctions compliance guidance

The European Commission has recently issued three opinions regarding the interpretation of asset freeze provisions in certain sanctions legislation pertaining to Central African Republic, Ukraine, Libya and Syria. The opinions are also of relevance for other sanctions regimes which provide for the same or similar restrictions. Therefore, their practical relevance goes far beyond the sanctions regimes in the context of which they were issued and they therefore provide for helpful guidance regarding the required thresholds for sanctions compliance generally.
