Borenius Tops the IFLR1000 Rankings with Tier 1 Spots in All Ranked Categories

Borenius’ success in legal directories continues as it is the only Finnish firm to receive Tier 1 rankings in all four practice areas in the IFLR1000 research published this year. This spring, Borenius also won the “Finland – Law Firm of the Year” title awarded by Chambers and Partners.

IFLR1000’s Financial & Corporate guide, published 13 October 2016, ranks Borenius as Tier 1 in Capital Markets, M&A, and Banking & Finance practice areas. IFLR1000’s Energy and Infrastructure guide (published in June 2016) also ranks us in the first tier, which makes Borenius the only Finnish Tier 1 law firm in all four categories.

Managing Partner of Borenius Casper Herler is enthused with these results: “This demonstrates very strong performance across the board of all our transactional practices. As a firm, it has been a great year for us in terms of international recognition as we also won the Chambers Law Firm of the Year Award 2016 in the Finnish category in April. All this speaks for the strength of our team and our clear focus on the high-value and high-stakes matters.”

A total of 11 Borenius lawyers are listed either as leading lawyers or rising stars across all rated practice areas.
