Baltic Partnership between Hedman Osborne Clarke and Skrastins & Dzenis

Hedman Osborne Clarke , the Finnish law firm with offices in Helsinki, Tallinn and St. Petersburg and Skrastins and Dzenis, one of the leading law firms in Latvia, have established the Baltic Partnership as first step to closer integration between the law firms in the Baltic Sea area.

Leveraging the best assets from each party, the Baltic Partnership will enable both Nordic and Latvian clients to grow their businesses in this region.

“We have been in Estonia for over 15 years and have helped more than 300 Finnish and international companies to establish businesses there. The creation of this new structure, the Baltic Partnership with a Latvian law firm, results from increasing requests from Finnish and international clients, who need legal advice also in Latvia. This is no surprise when taking into account the geographical location of Latvia and the fact that Latvian GDP growth has been the highest in Europe. Through our Baltic Partnership we are able to serve our Finnish and international clients as one stop shop in respect of Pan Baltic corporate and commercial transactions”, says Partner Kalle Pedak from Hedman Osborne Clarke.

“It is a well-known fact that international customers regard the Baltics as a unified region; also local Latvian customers need to conduct business in all Baltic countries. Therefore, the suppliers of legal services need to ensure the high international standard of services”, believes Verners Skrastins, Partner of law office Skrastins & Dzenis.

Through this Baltic partnership, we can connect the extensive experience of both parties and help you to make commercial decisions in the Baltic region which will ensure that your business deals will be to your best advantage.

Members of Baltic Partnership:
Hedman Osborne Clarke is one of the leading Finnish law firms, with offices in Helsinki, Tallinn and St. Petersburg. In addition, through our membership in Osborne Clarke Alliance, a European joint venture, we offer our clients the services of over 600 European and American lawyers.
