Maria‑Pia Hope, CEO of Vinge

Can you explain how client demands are changing?

We find our clients ask for more complex guidance and advice, and that they increasingly demand that we possess good industry knowledge. We have had a significant number of cross-border projects and this puts our well-developed network with the best firms and experts in other jurisdictions to good use. It is fundamental to the firm’s success to truly understand our clients’ business and to offer seamless and well-integrated advice in a proficiently managed manner.

How do you set yourself apart from other firms in Sweden?

We see a continued growth in the transaction sector, especially within
cross-border transactions and carve-outs. We also see strong growth within the trade and compliance sector as the legal world becomes more and more demanding. There is a continuing strong interest to invest in the Nordics, specifically within the tech and life sciences sectors.

Where are you seeing growth from domestic clients, as well as those who are looking to invest from outside the region?

All our practice areas are currently preforming well. M&A has been in high demand for quite some time, and we have yet to see a downturn in that market.

Domestically, the fintech sector is creating opportunities for business law firms through capital raising activities and IPOs. From an international perspective, Sweden is currently experiencing the greatest influx of Chinese capital through M&A of any European country.
