Quotes from clients interviewed by IFLR1000:

“In my view Borenius has succeeded well so far and there is a strong desire in the firm to succeed,” says one financial client. “There seems to be a strong willingness to go the extra mile to keep and make customers happy.”

Another says: “I have been very happy with Borenius’ handling of all matters related to the projects that I have worked on with them. They have a very professional and service-oriented attitude and very skilled personnel. Borenius were impeccable on everything they did. Furthermore, they ended up doing quite a lot that would not have been done in time unless the Borenius team had taken over certain issues from the other counsel. I have nothing but good things to say about the team at the moment.”

“I have worked with the capital markets group at Borenius,” says one international partner. “They are great; very responsive, helpful, proactive and user friendly. They are certainly the go to practice.”

“They made a good contribution focusing on relevant issues,” says one finance client of the team. “They were always well available when needed.” Another adds: “They had a good ability to understand our needs, solid support at negotiations, and usually can also help find compromises and creative solutions to problems.”
