Deep bench of talent

Aliant is an international law firm with a deep bench of talent across a multitude of practice areas. Our skills and experience are on par with world's best and biggest firms. We have a great love for the law, and our attorneys are capable of managing the most complex international legal transactions. When you work with an Aliant lawyer you get access to in-depth knowledge of local law combined with the ability to seamlessly work cross-border.

People above profits 

Big international law firms often shuffle clients to junior lawyers to maximize leverage and billings. Aliant does things differently. Our clients work with the lawyers they hire. No one gets handed off. Everyone gets equal respect. 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. That's just one of the benefits of working with an international law firm that puts people above profits. 

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, as well as in line with client's operating policy and guidelines for outside corporate counseling. We also assist start-ups, emerging growth companies and export projects in fundraising. Learn more about the possibilities on our Business Finland Expert Search profile.
