Åsa Krook demonstrates professional skills and is truly customer-focused. She is a favourite of big hitters such as Essity, Nestlé and Provio, which rely on her to stamp out counterfeiting. Krook is a nimble deal negotiator too, and recently assisted LänsiAuto in a franchise agreement with Enterprise Holdings.

In the courtroom Ben Rapinoja never fails to put in a strong performance. The mainstay litigator has been busy this year battling on behalf of L-Fashion Group in addition to defending Orifarm Group on a matter regarding the packaging of pharmaceutical products.
