Not only the best legal results, but also the most favorable business outcome.

We believe that by establishing guidelines and a strategic plan, we are able to work closely with the client to achieve not only the best legal results, but also the most favorable business outcome.

All services carried out by Aliant Finland shall be executed in accordance with a written client assignment, and with all due dispatch, care, accuracy, attention, and compliance with the rules on ethics established by the Finnish Bar Association, as well as in line with client's operating policy and guidelines for outside corporate counseling.  

Since we aim to be flexible, a client’s law department could, therefore, be considered as a part of our working team. Productivity gains can be established where in-house legal staff and outside counsel collaborate together.
