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

Our Employment and Benefits team provides consistently high-quality advice on all aspects of employment law. Typical services include drafting and negotiating employment agreements (especially for senior management), advisement on dismissals and redundancies (both collective and individual), representation in employment disputes (including breach of restrictive covenants), advice on employment law and pension aspects in mergers and acquisitions, and counsel related to short-term and long-term incentive schemes. We also advise on employment issues related to outsourcing and on privacy and data protection matters. As our lawyers possess in-depth understanding of issues ranging from employment law to dispute resolution and insolvency, this gives us a unique ability to understand the interaction of different legal disciplines to our clients' businesses.
