VINGE RECEIVES M&A AWARD FOR THIRD CONSECUTIVE YEAR

News, 9 December 2016

For the third consecutive year, Mergermarket has awarded Vinge the Sweden M&A Legal Adviser of the Year 2016 award.

Maria Pia Hope, Vinge’s CEO said: “It is with a great deal of gratitude toward our clients that we are able once again to receive the finest international award for Swedish M&A.”

Transactions for the year amounted to more than SEK 200 billion, divided over 70 projects.

Maria Pia: “We see that our clients are requesting the specialist competence which we possess within M&A and which is a result of the fact that we handle a large number of transactions. In addition, since we have expertise within all areas of business law, we are thus able to accept the most varied forms of engagements.  

Our ambition is to constantly improve our M&A service offering. For instance, in Sweden we were first to map out our M&A processes in order to improve efficiency and to have assistants who specialise in virtual data rooms. Our annual compilation of M&A deal terms on the Swedish market is also extremely popular.”

The award for Sweden M&A Legal Adviser of the Year 2016 and other awards were presented on Thursday evening at Mergermarket’s European M&A Awards ceremony in London. The award is based on, among other things, both the number of transactions performed and the value thereof. Consideration is also given to the strategic, complex and innovative level of the transactions as well as the number of IPOs involving the private equity sector. The jury included experts within M&A and representatives from Mergermarket.
