Our Corporate Advisory practice is focused on advising boards of directors and senior management of listed and non-listed companies in all matters having legal and strategic importance to the company and its shareholders. We render advice on the entire spectrum of corporate and securities laws as well as on corporate governance. We have a particular focus on legal and strategic issues related to finance and capital markets, corporate transactions and restructurings, dispute resolution, competition law and compliance. Our Corporate Advisory is an experienced cross-practice team which does not seek to provide quick fixes to complicated legal problems. Instead, we want to understand the underlying business interests and provide lasting solutions and true added value to our clients. Our partners regularly chair shareholders´ meetings of listed and non-listed companies and also act as board members of several companies.
We assist our clients in preparing internal policies and codes of conduct, evaluating anti-bribery issues as well as adapting global policies and practices for the Finnish legal and business environment. In addition we assist our clients with regulatory issues in their particular businesses. We have wide experience of specific regulatory areas, such as health care, energy, financial services, fund raising and gambling. We work in client-centered key account teams staffed with professionals with the relevant expertise required by each individual client. The teams aim at a thorough understanding of each client's business and the ways in which we can be of support.
Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR)
Companies should, in order to fully meet their corporate social responsibility (CSR), integrate environmental, ethical, social, human rights and consumer concerns into their business operations and core strategies in close collaboration with their stakeholders. We continuously advise clients on the legal aspects of a wide range of CSR issues and CSR is an important consideration in all our advisory work.
