Clients continue to rank Roschier number one

The recently released 2020 edition of the Kantar Sifo Prospera Tier 1 Law Firm Review Finland survey demonstrates Roschier's strong market standing and unique position. For six years in a row, we have been ranked as the number one law firm by clients participating in the survey, leading the market with superior legal expertise in our key practice areas.

For the sixth consecutive year, clients rate Roschier as the number one law firm in Finland in terms of overall performance. A development we are particularly proud of is the continued improvement in not only how clients rate our performance, but also the increasing lead we have managed to achieve over our competitors. Similarly to previous years, we are acknowledged for having the strongest legal skills in the market across the majority of surveyed areas, including M&A, Banking & Finance, Capital Markets, Corporate Governance & Compliance, Dispute Resolution, Employment, Intellectual Property, IT, Telecom, Media & Entertainment, Private Equity, and Tax.

When asked about what they look for in their legal advisor, clients in both respondent groups, All Tier 1 and Tier 1A, considered proficient lawyers and specialist expertise as the two most important criteria, and ranked us as the firm that best matches up to the demand. We are also considered particularly strong in terms of availability and service and our ability to handle large projects.

“The latest Prospera survey clearly evidences that our clients continue to place their trust in us and our expertise, for which we are thankful and proud. The positive feedback from our clients is humbling and we are very aware of the need continually to exceed their expectations. We always strive to be a little bit better every day, updating our skills, being frontrunners in the field of law and developing our working methods”, says Roschier’s Managing Partner Mikko Manner. “We are especially happy to be ranked number one in the three categories considered the most important this year: Lawyers’ Skills, Specialist Competence and Legal Advisory”, he concludes.

Based on the corresponding survey conducted in Sweden, Roschier has also solidified its position among the top three business law firms in the Swedish market, which confirms the strength of our Nordic one-firm offering.

The Prospera Law Firm Review is conducted by Kantar Sifo Prospera. Conducted for the twelfth time in Finland, the survey comprises an evaluation of law firms by organizations with a significant volume of annual purchases of legal services (annual purchases Tier 1 >/= EUR 0.15 million, Tier 1A >/=EUR 0.6 million). The key areas measured by the survey are overall performance, brand awareness and legal expertise across a number of areas. For the 2020 edition of the Finnish survey, some 201 organizations were interviewed between November 2019 and January 2020. The number of law firms evaluated was 13.
