MAGNUSSON HELSINKI TO MERGE WITH YLIKRAKA

2016-10-04

Magnusson Helsinki Attorneys-at-law and Attorneys-at-law Ylikraka will merge effective as of 1 January 2017. The new entity will operate under the Magnusson brand and will boast a team of 25 lawyers, whose aim it is to continue strong growth.

The new team will significantly strengthen Magnusson’s litigation capabilities and add insolvency law as a new service area to the firm. Ylikraka’s capabilities in this field are widely known and, among others, have been recognized by Chambers Europe 2016 with a recommendation in Restructuring/Insolvency.

“We warmly welcome Ylikraka to Magnusson. The firm’s size and customer service will grow significantly and our goal is to continue strong development in the near future,” says Tomi Merenheimo, Managing Partner Magnusson Helsinki.

“The ability to serve international clientele is also an absolute prerequisite in insolvency law when dealing with people at the top level. Thanks to Magnusson, we will gain access to know-how and experience in M&A and business acquisitions, which are also key areas when running successfully bankruptcy matters,” says Pertti Ylikraka.

“It is with a great pleasure that we welcome a new team to the Magnusson family. Capabilities and expertise of a combined team bring us to the next level in terms of the breadth and depth of offering and potential for further growth, both domestically and on the international level,” comments Per Magnusson, founder and Senior Partner of Magnusson International.
