Special report: Scandinavia

The Scandinavian market shows no sign of slowing despite concerns over global economic prospects. Law firms in the markets of Finland, Sweden and the Baltic States are enjoying a period of international expansion and a substantial amount of cross-border corporate work, with deals done across the region.

This Special Report kicks off with a look at how the credit crunch has affected the dynamic and close-knit region. Mannheimer Swartling has found that the Nordic banking system has managed to avoid some of the knock-on effects of the crisis in the global debt markets by working with long-term clients.

The report also examines the links between the Swedish and Finnish legal markets with law firm Roschier and, in the final article, discusses the complex business relationships – particularly when securing debt – between Finnish and Russian companies with Helsinki-based Castrén & Snellman.
