Quotes from clients interviewed by IFLR 1000:

“I think there is a good quality throughout,” says a financial services client. “The partners complement each other well. One has the client’s trust and takes care of the client relationships and the other has the deep knowledge of the work.”

Borenius are the best match for me as a client. They are very good, they take us seriously and they are a known name in London and that helps when you’re working with international clients.”

Borenius has provided a very efficient and solution-oriented service,” says a client about the work of the corporate team. “The lawyers involved have a hands-on and pragmatic approach and are committed to service.”

[They provide] solid and sound knowledge on legal backgrounds and market practices.”

The underlying difference between them and other firms in Finland is that the Borenius partners are very hands on, even the senior guys. I need to know someone underwrites the quality of the firm’s work and you get that with them. Also, I don’t think I pay a premium for this extra attention and so I would say I get good value for money as well.”
