This is quite exceptional topic, but it is a quite exceptional day as well! But in any case I had to write a word about this even though someone might consider this as condemned "self-marketing" but let me assure you that the intention is just the opposite.
The respected IFLR1000, which is an annual guide to the world's leading financial and corporate law firms covering over 120 jurisdictions worldwide, has listed our firm TRUST. among the leading Finnish law firms in M&A and Banking & Finance today!!!
The aim of IFLR1000 is to provide clients of law firms throughout the world with easy-to-use rankings and profiles of the leading firms in each country organised by practice area, accompanied by analysis of the market trends and business environment.
They base the rankings and analysis on their own extensive independent research, which is conducted by dedicated journalists in offices in New York, London and Hong Kong with a goal to produce the most objective and informative guide possible.
This is part of our statement:
"Boutique firm Trust is headed by partner Mika Lehtimäki who is supported by partner Jan Lindberg. It was only established in 2011 but has been building a reputation for itself in the past few years and gaining recognition from the market for its work. Its working method is to focus on a small number of clients with more "intensity" and through this the team believes it can achieve the best quality."
I just wish to take this opportunity and thank all our clients and colleagues for their kind words and this only makes us work even harder!!! And of course thanks my friend and magnificent colleague Mika as well for the splendid road so far during the past few years and I'm eagerly waiting all those interesting things that the future will brings in front of us! ;)
