Aliant Finland Readies Clients for UK Exit from the EU

Los Angeles – Aliant Finland, the Aliant® member firm in Helsinki has reported an increase in inquiries by European companies concerned about the impact of Brexit on business operations.

The dynamic Helsinki law firm formerly known as Kauttu & Co. merged with Aliant® earlier this year. Aliant® is an international law firm headquartered in Los Angeles, California. The firm specializes in cross-border transactions, serving clients from its offices in fourteen countries.

Aliant Finland, led by Tuomo Kauttu (LL.M), an industry leader known for successfully representing multi-national businesses in cross-border transactions, has seen a significant rise in inquiries and transactions regarding a Brexit backlash.

In May 2019, the United Kingdom will leave the European Union in a move that will affect foreign companies engaged in business with the UK. This will have a significant impact on many long-term contracts, trade tariffs, free movement of goods and services, talent pool and more.

Kauttu says, “We are receiving many inquiries about this change and we tell them the truth. They will most likely be affected depending on how intergrated their business is with the UK. Fortunately, preparation will greatly minimize any negative impact brought on by Brexit.”

Aliant Finland offers a range of legal services to local and international businesses including Commercial Transactions and International Trade, Mergers and Acquisitions, Corporate Law & Corporate Governance.

Mr. Kauttu has over 20 years of legal experience in international corporate transactions. He specializes in cross-border transactions, mergers and acquisitions, corporate law and technology commerce.

Kauttu says, “We represent companies who conduct business across the EU and are currently working with our clients to ensure that they are not impacted by Brexit.”
