Peltonen, Ruokonen & Itäinen Attorneys-at-law Ltd. and LMR Attorneys Ltd. will merge

The partners of Peltonen, Ruokonen & Itäinen Attorneys-at-law Ltd. and LMR Attorneys Ltd. are pleased to announce that they will merge effective September 1, 2011. The name of the law firm will be Peltonen LMR Attorneys Ltd.

Peltonen LMR Attorneys Ltd. will provide its domestic and international clientele with high quality legal services in all areas of Finnish business law. With almost 50 lawyers, it will become one of the most significant law firms in Finland. “A large law firm is not an end in itself”, notes Chairman of the Board Mr. Leif Itäinen. “What is of critical importance is the ability to serve all of the legal requirements of every client. By merging our firms, we will create an entity which is in a very strong position to meet this challenge, in terms of the talent and experience of our firm as well as the resources available to our clients.”

Johan Schmidt has been appointed Managing Director of Peltonen LMR Attorneys Ltd. “We have very strong and versatile backgrounds at an individual level compared to other law firms”, comments Mr. Schmidt. “Because of this, we are exceptionally well-qualified to offer our clients the kinds of solutions that are not only legally sound but also pragmatic and effective. The legal networks of our firm and lawyers will also enable us to give solid support to the international endeavors of our clients.”

For more information we kindly ask you to contact one of the undersigned.

Yours truly,

Johan Schmidt
