Hello, how can we help you?

Shipping, Transport & Insurance

Borenius offers a comprehensive array of services in shipping, transport and related insurance law. We are a leading service provider in Finland for this specialized field and also have experts in international ship finance and shipbuilding to cover all major areas of shipping law.

Close to 90 per cent of the Finnish export trade volume (in metric tons) and close to 80 per cent of the total foreign trade volume is transported by sea. Hence, carriage by sea is the lifeblood of Finnish foreign trade, and the involvement of foreign ship owners is significant.
