Attorneys at law Borenius Ltd Opens an Office in St. Petersburg, Russia

The new office will have a team of 15 experienced lawyers led by Andrei Gusev, a leading and highly respected lawyer in Russia. The lawyers joining Borenius have previously worked in the St. Petersburg office of the leading Swedish law firm Mannheimer Swartling.

The new office will provide clients with services covering all areas of business law, which is in line with the full service concept of Borenius. The Russian team consists of highly ranked individuals. The key lawyers have been working together for several years, which ensures the continuous premium quality of services.

This opening is a further step in Borenius’ strategy for growth. The aim is to combine under the same brand legal services to Finnish companies having activities in Russia, as well as to Russian and international companies. As a result of the opening the number of Borenius’ lawyers is increased by more than ten per cent.

“We believe in the Russian market and we have been witnessing the steady demand for legal services in the Northwest Russia for a time now. We did not hesitate when we met this unique opportunity to get such an experienced and talented team as part of Borenius. We see that having an established position as a legal partner of Russian business, in addition to Finnish and other Nordic clients, is one of the keystones of our success in Russia,” says Jari Vikiö, the Managing Partner of Attorneys at law Borenius.
