Borenius has been shortlisted for the Mergermarket 2014 European M&A Awards in the category of Finland Legal Adviser of the Year. We believe that the shortlisting recognizes Borenius’ strategic growth to one of the largest and most experienced M&A teams in Finland, which is evidenced by the number of transactions published in Mergermarket’s league tables.
According to Mergermarket, we have advised in some thirty M&A transactions during the period Q4 2013 Q3 2014. The transactions include, among others, the voluntary public tender offer for the shares in NASDAQ OMX Helsinki listed Oral Hammaslääkärit plc, where Borenius acted as the legal advisor of the offeror Renideo Holding Oy. We have also advised several prominent domestic and large international private equity houses, such as CapMan, Intera Equity Partners, Sentica Partners, Vaaka Partners, BC Partners, Cinven, H.I.G., and Pamplona Capital Management in their diverse transactions in Finland. Also the State owned investment and special purpose vehicles Finnish Industry Investment Ltd and Governia Oy have been among our clients in both public and private M&A transactions.
