Organization Now Provides Comprehensive Coverage Throughout the Nordic and Balkan Regions

SAN FRANCISCO (June 24, 2015) – The Employment Law Alliance (ELA), the world’s largest network of labor, employment and immigration lawyers, has named Vinge its member firm for Sweden and Georgi Dimitrov Attorneys as its member firm for Macedonia.

“We have added two highly-regarded firms to the ELA stable. This development is a testament to our organization’s appeal and underlying value,” said Stephen J. Hirschfeld, founder and CEO of the Employment Law Alliance. “The Nordic region is absolutely key to servicing global businesses and Vinge has the most highly regarded employment lawyers in Sweden. In addition, adding a go-to firm in Macedonia provides our clients with total Balkan coverage – a crucial region that continues to reel in significant business from multinational businesses.”

Vinge is a 450 attorney full-service firm with offices in Stockholm, Gothenburg, Malmö and Helsingborg as well as in Brussels. Its employment law practice routinely handles matters involving labor law and contracts, cross-border acquisitions, employment agreements, privacy, reorganizations and workplace discrimination allegations.

Consistently honored by the legal community, Vinge is a recent selectee for Chamber’s Europe’s “Law Firm of the Year” for Sweden and the International Financial Law Review’s (IFLR) European Awards. The firm is listed in Chambers and Partners, the Legal 500 and the IFLR1000.

“The Employment Law Alliance affords us access to a worldwide client and referral base,” said Partner and ELA member representative Olle Lindén. “We are excited to explore the opportunities opened up by this global, best-in-class law firm network.”

Georgi Dimitrov Attorneys is based in Macedonia’s capital city, Skopje. The firm, featured in both Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500, provides client services across seven practice areas, including employment law.

The firm’s employment law practice is led by Georgi Dimitrov, widely considered the most creative and innovative employment lawyer in Macedonia. His firm represents a broad array of domestic and multi-national companies handling sophisticated matters ranging from reorganizations, redundancies and outsourcing, to employment contracts, collective bargaining, work visas and wrongful dismissals.

“We are thrilled to join the ELA family. As more and more companies choose to expand their operations in the Balkans, the ELA becomes a critical resource for ensuring labor and employment and immigration compliance,” said Dimitrov, his eponymous firm’s ELA member representative.
