Nordic companies are increasingly going global, and have begun to show significant interest in law firms who can offer widely admitted cross-border teams for their business needs. Magnusson is well-equipped and ready to address this need, and is delighted to offer know-how and guidance on complex legal matters in Finland and beyond.

Magnusson is a front-runner in advising Finnish companies on their international expansion and ensures their success in complex projects”, says Tomi Merenheimo, Attorney-at-Law, Managing Partner in Helsinki.
