Corporate Advisory

Our integrated cross-border Corporate Advisory team includes some of the most skilled and sought-after corporate lawyers in the Nordic region, providing advice and client service of the highest quality. We are experienced in advising the boards and management of large Finnish and Swedish listed companies on complex corporate matters.

The team includes the architects of the Finnish Companies Act and lawyers who have written doctoral theses in Swedish and Finnish company law. Our proven ability to solve the most complex corporate issues has made us trusted advisors to several of the largest public and private companies in the Nordic region in relation to corporate governance, risk management, board liability and other matters, such as contractual and preventive risk counseling.

The Roschier team is excellent. They are highly knowledgeable, very responsive, extremely likeable and the most commercially minded legal team. Chambers Europe, Corporate/M&A

Together with specialists from our firm’s other practices, we have developed a module-based methodology for corporate compliance implementation covering, for example, general corporate governance, market abuse, anti-corruption, cartel prevention, data privacy and EHS (Environment, Health and Safety), which includes risk assessments, documentation and program implementation, as well as a crisis management first aid kit.

The Corporate Advisory practice has long-standing, solid relationships with corporate clients and private equity sponsors and a strong network among financial and strategic advisors. Our lawyers are involved in, and regularly take initiatives to develop, corporate governance on both the local and EU level.
