Legal market overview

Corporate and M&A was very active throughout 2014, with private equity playing a key role in deal activity. Roschier and Hannes Snellman worked on Microsoft’s acquisition of Nokia, which was the largest M&A transaction in the market in 2014. On the real estate and construction front, wind power and nuclear power plant construction is keeping firms busy.

Elsewhere, arbitration is gaining favour over straight litigation for resolving disputes. Finland’s Market Court, which hears competition and public procurement cases, has established a specialist intellectual property court to hear all IP-related civil disputes, including domain name cases.

Juridia Bützow Ltd, Attorneys-at-Law merged with the Eversheds network to become JB Eversheds.
