Legal counselling for corporate customers is all about risk management and control.
for corporate customers
We like to view legal services as an investment to the business and its future. Legal counselling is a great chance to learn about identifying risks and how to assess when it is time to turn to an expert instead of dealing with the matter by yourself. This is also a way to avoid unnecessary costs and pitfalls. Our most important task at Ferenda is to protect our clients’ interest as well as we possibly can. Our goal is to become your trusted partner; a partner you can turn to whenever you feel insecure or are otherwise in need of help. By maintaining an open dialogue, we are able to assess the legal frame of your situation and develop solutions based on each situation. Trust and openness are thus central to a fruitful co-operation.
There are as many entrepreneurs and businesses as there are legal cases – depending on the situation our role can be anything from a general consult to an expert. Find out how we can help you below!
It is important to invest in the drawing up of a contract; it will prevent future disagreements.

Business relations may lead to disagreements even when all necessary preventive means have been used. In case of conflict we try to reach the best possible result cost efficiently. Our experts assist our clients throughout negotiations and litigation.

Our experts will help you with all areas of labour legislation, from starting an employment to concluding one. We will help you to recognise and avoid the risks in advance.
It would be good to always strive to avoid damages, even if it’s not possible at all times.

Our lawyers have long-term experience from claims for damages and insurance matters. We will help companies to avoid extra work and additional expenses.
With our lawyers’ extensive experience, you will avoid problem situations and make sure your merger or acquisition succeeds. The success of corporate acquisition, change of generation, finances, change of company form and reorganization are vital for your company’s future.
When your company needs legal advice, the legal expenses insurance may cover all or a part of your expenses. We help our clients to apply legal expenses insurance benefits and we will also deliver all necessary documents to the insurance company.
Private business owners and entrepreneurs have the chance to apply for a debt rearrangement. The payment plan includes business related debts. The prerequisite for a debt rearrangement and a payment plan is that the business is profitable. A detailed account about business profitability is required as an enclosure of the application. We assist with the debt rearrangement application and help draw up a payment plan. In addition, we can help with the required documents and confirmation of the payment plan.
Questions about housing companies often have to do with the liability distribution between the housing corporation and its shareholders, i.e. residents. The liability distribution regarding property, buildings, and living areas can be unclear. The liability distribution can be determined in the articles of association, but the basic principles are written in the Limited Liability Housing Companies Act (asunto-osakeyhtiölaki). Disagreements regarding the liability distribution are a good example of the types of cases where Ferenda can help housing companies. In addition, we assist in damage situations and help our customers all the way to the trial if necessary.

Our role is always negotiated case by case.
