Swedish independent Vinge has appointed finance partner Maria-Pia Hope as its new managing partner.
Hope was selected for the role by the firm’s five-partner management board and will succeed Michael Wigge in the job, taking over by June this year.
Wigge was managing partner between 2000 and 2004 and again from 2007 until 2012. He will return to full-time fee-earning.
Hope joined Vinge in 1996 and was made up in 2003. She spent a decade in Vinge’s London office, including a stint as office managing partner.
She told The Lawyer her job as managing partner would be to ensure Vinge maintained its strategy as a full-service independent firm with a focus on recruiting and retaining talent.
Areas of investment included regulatory law and public M&A. In October 2011 Vinge hired Peter Bäärnhielm from investment bank Carnegie to head up the firm’s public corporate law group in Stockholm.
However, 2011 also saw the departures of partners to Ashurst (2 November 2011) and Roschier (6 July 2011).
Hope said Vinge did not plan to increase its current international presence. The firm closed its London office in 2009 (5 November 2009), but maintains offices in Brussels, Hong Kong and Shanghai.
