A law firm is more than just a business.
A successful law firm is much more than a sum of its practice areas. As a firm, we believe in a strong unified corporate culture where all practices and practitioners share the same values, mission and strategy. This means we constantly focus on building and maintaining capabilities enabling us to assist and advise clients with complex cases in a highly competitive business environment. We want to help our clients change the business landscape, and in doing that, we work closely with law firms around the globe that value the same attributes and get retained by high-end clients for the same reasons.
Our long-term success is built on professional excellence and international experience combined with un-compromising integrity and ethics. But we do not succeed alone. That is why each assignment requires us to build the right team of experts for your company. Their innovative approach to legal challenges and strong commitment to the team enables us to assist you on the most demanding cases.
Today, Borenius employs over 120 lawyers, and as a leading independent Finnish law firm, we work together with other highly regarded law firms across the globe that share our commitment to excellent service and quality. We have invested significantly in our global network of top-tier international law firms to ensure that we can provide the best advice for our clients both in Finland and in other jurisdictions.
At the beginning of 2019, we received the prestigious Nordic Law Firm of the Year 2019 award at The Lawyer European Awards. This award was granted based on strategic vision and consistent excellence in the delivery of legal services, among other criteria.
