Prestigious domestic practice
Vinge’s employment department is headed by Fredrik Dahl in Stockholm. Åsa Gotthardsson in Stockholm, Ingela Malmborg in Malmö, and Yohanna Öhrnegård in Gothenburg are other key contacts.
The team bolstered its offering on 1 January 2022 by promoting Skåne-based of counsel Emelie Svensäter Jerntorp to partner; Jerntorp is an employment and data protection specialist.
The firm has also announced that Petronella Hallberg, who practices M&A and employment law, will become counsel on 1 January 2023.
Vinge has an excellent employment practice.
In 2022, the firm launched its “Dude Diligence” service, which goes beyond basic due diligence to provide an enhanced analysis of gender equality in companies undergoing corporate transactions.
The team is the Swedish member of the Employment Law Alliance, offering it a global reach.
The department supports companies across the full spectrum of labour and employment matters, from health and safety considerations through to advising on pensions, and on issues surrounding gig economy workers.
The team’s cross-border work includes the establishment of European Work Councils and M&A, as well as obtaining work permits, setting up companies, and advice on the international outsourcing of departments.
Further work in the corporate space includes acting on restructuring and redundancy programmes.
Another notable area is investigations, where the team is particularly active in those associated with the #MeToo movement.
The team is also well placed to assist clients with contentious matters. Examples of this include wrongful dismissal claims, and disputes arising over the establishment of competing business by ex-employees.
Additionally, the group boasts prowess in assisting clients with matters relating to top executives, including employment contracts and incentives agreements.
