The growth, competitiveness and market position of a company may be strengthened through acquisitions or intra-group restructurings. Likewise, the sale of a company, a business unit, or demerger may provide resources to grow your core business or provide an exit route for an equity investor. Our experienced M&A and Finance team is well-known in the Finnish and cross-border markets. As an example, we represented First Quantum Minerals Ltd. in the sale of its Finnish Kevitsa mine to Boliden Mineral AB for US$712 million. The transaction was the biggest private company transaction in Finland during the first quarters of 2016.

We are able to advise clients in the whole spectrum of M&A transactions, from the due diligence, letter of intent and structuring phase to the negotiation and documentation of the transactional agreements, regulatory filings and the post-completion matters.

Our Finance team also advises target companies and financiers in a broad range of Finnish private equity investment rounds, ranging from angel and series seed investments up to series c investment rounds and exits. Our services also include advising borrowers and lenders in various loan, securitization and other financing arrangements in addition to advising foreign clients in public market issuances in respect of Finnish laws.

Kalliolaw’s M&A and Finance teams are also highly ranked in e.g. IFLR1000’s researches from year to year.
