Private M&A

Being a leader in international M&A means getting a lot of elements right: an experienced team, industry coverage, and local market knowledge, for example. As a result of the high number of successfully completed deals we have been involved in, we can offer our clients broad insight into numerous industries and in-depth advice on deal making and on the Nordic market place. Due to our long-term cooperation with our clients, we are well equipped to tailor our advice to their specific needs. At the core, though, the key factor is developing the right culture.

Our team has been involved in nearly all major deals in the region, both in Finland and Sweden, during the past few years. We have maintained our leading market position in Finland for a number of years, consistently outdistancing our rivals in the M&A league tables, and we are also among the leading firms in Sweden. Key complementary areas such as regulatory, anti-trust, structuring, finance, IPR and employment are seamlessly integrated into the M&A services that we provide to our clients, thereby enabling us to provide advice throughout the transaction life cycle.

To remain at the cutting edge and to serve our clients better, we constantly develop new concepts and solutions and improve existing ones. Our approach to private M&A is built on an understanding of transactional realities, a genuine interest in our clients’ business and extensive experience in a wide range of industries.
