“Roschier is a leading law firm in Finland and in the Nordics. There is little that needs to be said about the high level of professional skills, which is well known and established. There is however an additional aspect that is perhaps less obvious: they do not seem to rest on their laurels, but continue to develop their competence and offering. The nice thing is that they often involve their clients in training and seminars, creating a better bond and also taking a role of social responsibility in raising awareness and competence in the local IPR and legal community. Many law firms use events as a way to show off their knowledge. Roschier’s message is rather ‘let’s grow together’.”
