Yesterday SORAINEN won the “Baltic Law Firm of the Year” award at the International Financial Law Review (IFLR) European Awards 2014. These awards first and foremost recognise innovation in the legal sector. So winning this fifth award in the last six years confirms that SORAINEN is continuously advising on the most cutting-edge deals in the Baltic region.
Reimo Hammerberg, regional head of the SORAINEN Banking & Finance Team, comments: “During 2013 we advised our clients on many transactions of strategic significance in the Baltics. These often required innovative solutions – sometimes introducing amendments to laws or changes to the established practices of regulators and supervisors, or even paving the way for new practices. We are proud to receive this award as recognition for our hard work and grateful to our clients for trusting us with mandates of such importance.”
This time recognition came particularly for advising:
SORAINEN has previously won the “Baltic Law Firm of the Year” award in 2013, 2012, 2010 and 2009. SORAINEN stands out as one of the very few law firms in Europe which has received the national award for three consecutive years. The IFLR Europe Awards recognise the best law firms in each European jurisdiction. They particularly reward cross-border activity in the following domains: finance and capital markets, restructuring, mergers and acquisitions. Factors influencing IFLR's choice include recommendations by clients, innovation and transaction complexity. IFLR, part of the Euromoney Legal Media Group and published for over 20 years, is the world's leading publication for in-house counsel and practitioners in the financial markets.
