Practices

Our legal services are highly regarded for their professionalism and expertise.

Clients come to us because they need practical answers. That is why we appreciate the power of saying ‘yes’ or ‘no’ rather than ‘maybe’. Our significant size in the Finnish market means that we have the depth of resources needed to represent clients in even their most complex and important matters. Krogerus lawyers are often involved in transactions and proceedings that are cross-border in nature or where we represent the domestic subsidiary of an international corporation. We offer a broad range of legal services across the corporate spectrum.

Employment and Benefits

We advise clients on all aspects of employment law, ranging from contracts of employment, especially for senior management, dismissals and redundancies (both collective and individual) as well as employment disputes (including breach of restrictive covenants). We also advise on the employment law and pension aspects of mergers and acquisitions, outsourcings and corporate reorganisations. We have considerable experience in structuring and implementing share and other long-term incentive schemes. We also advise clients on all aspects of privacy and data protection.
