Riskin siirtyminen kansainvälisessä kaupassa

Posted on

Riskin siirtymistä arvioidaan monissa eri yhteyksissä merilain ja kauppaoikeuden alalla. Samanaikaisesti se on konsepti, joka vielä nykypäivänkin kaupallisessa maailmassa on jäänyt yllättävän epäselväksi. Lähtökohtaisesti riski siirtyy myyjältä ostajalle kun tavarat lastataan alukseen. Kuitenkin riskin siirtymisen tarkka ajankohta on edelleen epäselvä ja voi luoda ristiriitoja sopimusosapuolten välille. Tämä siis siinä tapauksessa, jos osapuolet eivät ole asiasta […]

Service Policy

"Over the past 15 years, Meira Oy has obtained professional services of Aliant Finland (previously Kauttu & Co), including legal consultation on corporate law, stock acquisition transactions and commercial agreements. In my opinion, they have carried out their work and assisted Meira Oy as well as Massimo Zanetti Group with high professional ability"   Raimo Sinisalo, managing director at Meira Oy

We aim to assist clients by delivering the quality of professional service expected from large firms, but with greater flexibility, efficiency and responsiveness. We fully realize that in order to be effective and to offer real value, we must be able to react to your legal needs and to make ourselves available whenever required. We pay special attention to getting to know and understand your businesses and operations rather than simply pointing out problems.

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.  

Upon request, a strategic plan, budget and separate billing statement shall be submitted for each project on which we are working. Since the client retains outside counsel for their expertise in the areas of law involved in a project, basic research, seminars, or other training are not part of our billing plan.

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.
