Borenius is one of the largest and most experienced full-service law firms in Finland. We have offices in Finland, Russia, and the United States, having opened our New York City office in 2012.
We operate in New York mainly for two purposes:
- We offer a convenient gateway for U.S. companies looking to invest and do business in the Finnish, Russian, Baltic and Nordic territories. We provide services in all areas of Finnish and Russian corporate law.
- We also offer specific U.S. legal services for select corporate clients looking to enter the U.S. market. In the U.S., we assist with early investments, acquisitions, ongoing operations and litigation management, usually together with local or specialized co-counsel to ensure meeting all of your business needs.
Legal Advisor and Legal Services Management
We help start-up and growth company clients establish a wholly- or partially-owned U.S. company and to draft and negotiate agreements with U.S. employees, partners and customers.
In cooperation with local or specialized counsel, we represent growth and listed companies in their small- and mid-market acquisitions or joint ventures in the U.S. We continue our representation in the same manner after closing such transactions in an outside general counsel role, helping companies with a diverse set of commercial matters, such as NDAs, sales and licensing agreements, shareholder and board of directors’ actions, joint development and cooperation agreements and employment matters.
Our network of reliable and specialized advisors provide support in state-specific or specialized matters. Clients benefit from our dual time zone execution, experience in both the U.S. and Finnish markets, and efficient coordination within our nationwide network of service providers to provide comprehensive coverage.
Borenius’ litigation and arbitration management services offered from our Helsinki and New York City offices create the best conditions to succeed in legal disputes in the U.S., in addition to providing cost certainty and expertise in litigation funding for Finnish corporate groups and companies. We assist in selecting the right U.S. counsel, managing litigation document and evidence demands, and creating efficient communication streams between you and your U.S. counsel.
Borenius New York is dedicated to effectively facilitate your U.S. goals and delegating any matters to more specialized trusted parties when appropriate. We are your U.S. partner with Finnish principles, working seamlessly across jurisdictions, languages and time zones, while making full use of the collective resources of our firm.
We provide services in Finnish, English, Spanish, Polish and Swedish.
