Nordic Desk

Borenius' Nordic Desk is your gateway to legal services and business networks in the Nordic region.

Borenius, founded in 1911, is one of the largest and most prominent full-service law firms in Finland. We provide a China Desk and a Nordic Desk for both domestic and international clientele that require assistance with legal matters relating to these regions. Outside of Finland, we have offices in New York and London. Our New York office opened in 2012 and London in 2020.

How can our Nordic Desk help you?

  • Our extensive network of Nordic law firms enables us to find the right partner to assist our clients with their business in the Nordics in every situation.
  • When advising a client on a specific matter, we can always turn to our partners in other Nordic countries to quickly and efficiently verify how a specific aspect of our client’s matter – whether it be related to law, regulation or market practice – would be treated in that specific Nordic country.

We excel at understanding local business culture in the Nordics

  • We constantly meet and discuss legal trends with our Nordic colleagues and work with them on cross-border matters.
  • We also constantly monitor market trends throughout the region.
  • Our network of law firms enables us to provide our clients with a single point of contact for relevant cross-border legal advice in the Nordics.

We assist Finnish businesses with their Nordic operations

  • Many of our clients have significant activities in the Nordic region, and we regularly advise Nordic corporates, private equity sponsors and financial institutions on cross-border matters.
  • In addition to our partners in the legal market, we have established long-standing relationships with Swedish, Danish and Norwegian financial advisers, investment banks and finance providers.

We are a globally recognised and highly ranked law firm

We have won the Finnish Law Firm of the Year Award at the IFLR Europe Awards 2021. This is on top of our previous recognitions since in 2019, we were awarded the title of Best Nordic Law Firm by The Lawyer European Awards and the title of Most Innovative Finnish Law Firm by the IFLR Europe Awards. These prestigious awards were granted to us based on our strategic vision and cross-border capabilities as well as our consistent excellence in the delivery of legal services and our strong New York & London representative offices.

We are also consistently ranked as a top tier firm in Finland by all leading legal directories, such as Chambers and Partners (Global and Europe), IFLR1000 and the Legal 500.

We are your Nordic partner with Finnish principles, working seamlessly across jurisdictions, languages and time zones, while making full use of the collective resources of our firm.
