MAGNUSSON FILES THE LARGEST SET OF CLAIMS EVER FILED AT ONE TIME IN FINLAND

2015-01-08

Magnusson Helsinki filed the largest set of claims ever filed at one time in Finland.

This consisted of more than a thousand of separate claims for damages based on the forestry cartel between the three major Finnish forestry companies.

The clients include individuals, municipalities and other entities that had sold lumber during the time of the cartel.

“We are delighted to advise our clients on this unique case and do our best to represent them in a truly professional and efficient manner. Almost half of the Helsinki office resources were involved in this complex matter. We will now wait for the decision of the Finnish Supreme Court on whether it accepts the appeal of the forestry companies on the issue of statute of limitations based on the earlier cases, which decision will obviously be crucial to the claims filed later”, commented Tomi Merenheimo, Managing Partner of Magnusson in Finland.
