D&I was announced as the winner of Finland M&A Legal Adviser of the Year at Mergermarket’s European M&A Awards ceremony held in London on 6 December 2018.
The M&A Award is based on thorough judging process that considers the overall value of transactions and the volume of the deals as well as the value-adding nature of the advisory work provided to clients.
“We are honoured to be awarded the Finland M&A Legal Adviser of the Year. We serve demanding transaction clients from a wide range of jurisdictions, often operating as a trusted gateway into and out of the Nordic region. I believe that our leading position is based on our unique experience and our Powerhouse operating model”, Managing Partner Anders Carlberg says.
During the past year we have been engaged in some of the largest and most complex transactions on the Finnish market including the largest public tender offer ever for a Finnish listed company, Amer Sports Corporation; the largest energy transaction ever in Finland, the acquisition of Elenia; the sale of Parmaco to a group of investors led by Terra Firma; the combination of UC AB and Asiakastieto Group Plc; the acquisition of Powerflute Group; Fennia’s acquisition of Folksam Non-Life and IKEA’s investment in the largest subsidy-free wind farm project in the Nordics.
