Main practice areas

Company law
NORDIA Law advises on company law matters relating to all types of legal entities. Many of the firm’s partners and associates possess specialist knowledge in areas that, in one way or another, relate to company law. Obviously, the firm often assists in the drafting of contracts in conjunction with business transactions and thereby frequently assumes an active advisory role. Matti Kari and Antti Hannula are generally considered to be among the top lawyers in the field.

Mergers and acquisitions
NORDIA Law has solid experience in M&A. We advise companies and venture capital investors on private equity mergers, investments, and acquisitions, as well as due diligence, regulatory work, and contract negotiations. The team is noted for its extensive experience acting for clients in the technology and gaming sectors. Practice leader Matti Kari specialises in public and private M&A as well as advising on private equity issues. The clients include local and international companies ranging from start-ups to large international corporations.

Dispute resolution
NORDIA Law has long and solid experience in this field, and litigation engages many of the partners and associates of the firm. The collective expertise in this area is hard to beat. Dispute resolution, per definition, involves and requires knowledge of other legal areas.

Intellectual property
The practice includes dispute resolution and other means of protecting intellectual property, such as trademarks, designs, and know-how. Pinja Hoffrichter is leading the team. She is a skilled and frequent litigator and adviser within the field of IP as well as other fields of business law.

Employment law
The firm’s employment law team is small but very highly regarded. The team is working closely with the dispute resolution team and regularly represents clients from small to large companies within the various mandatory negotiations and trials.
