Quotes in IFLR1000's 2017 edition include:
"Recognised by clients and peers alike as one of the stronger energy and infrastructure practices in Finland, Krogerus continues to impress with a broad range of work. The firm is particularly strong in the energy sector and can count most of the major Finnish energy companies as clients."
"They delivered the product in a highly professional and quality way, and that was in part because they delivered it to a level that we might expect out of a London office," says one senior client from an international bank.
One client working for a major energy group says: "They are a very good team for regulated infrastructure, with excellent negotiation skills and an extremely responsive team; they never drop the ball. Krogerus's energy team is the best in Finland for regulated infrastructure."
“The team at Krogerus were able to deliver good work,” says one client from the banking sector. "They were able to offer fluent and continuing communication with the principal lawyer. They really are true professionals."
"They are very practical and don’t overcomplicate things. Krogerus is well versed in many matters but certain matters, such as securities, the team led by Mårten Knuts is unparalleled in the whole of Finland."
