In many respects, Fondia is a forerunner. This includes the way in which we take care of the environment and those around us.
Fondia is a pioneer within the legal industry. Our working culture is based around caring and collaboration. As an employer we provide excellent possibilities to combine work and family life, for example through offering our people the chance to work flexibly from home.
Our ambition to take responsibility for people, society and the environment extends even further. The Corporate Social Responsibility at Fondia is implemented through different forms of collaborations. Fondia’s supporting partners are Kiva Lainat and SOS-Lapsikylät.
Every child has the right to a safe and pleasant childhood. Fondia supports children and families in need through SOS-Lapsikylät in our operating countries of Finland, Sweden and Estonia.
We believe that throughout the world, the driving force for progressing society is entrepreneurship. Fondians support entrepreneurs in developing countries with interest-free microloans coordinated by the international association Kiva Loans.
Fondia also cares about the environment. We promote limited paper use, recycling, waste sorting and public transport, as well as purchasing local and ecological food. Many of us have also taken these habits home with us.
In addition, Fondia supports young artists in starting up their careers. We offer the walls at our Helsinki office for a variety of exhibitions by students from the Academy of Fine Arts and convey contact details in cases of possible buyers. Furthermore, the art gallery is a sight to behold for staff and customers alike.
“The strength behind Fondia’s operating model is that it’s like an outsourced internal function. We can contact our lawyer directly and start working on resolving the issue at hand right away. This means we receive more extensive resources and broader knowledge than if we try handling things internally. The process is refined and runs smoothly: work starts right away and is of the highest quality.”
”It has proven to be a good match. When choosing a business partner I need the relationship to be balanced. Fondia is not one of the biggest law firms and this means our company is important enough for them. Fondia´s lawyers have a very practical approach and straightforward attitude. They are highly co-operative with solid legal knowledge. They also know when it is pragmatic to bring in additional expertise.”
“Fondia has served as our outsourced legal department and our collaborations have been so considerable that we have been able to delegate tasks to them in a very straightforward manner and without the need to supply further background information. Our lawyer at Fondia understands what is vital in our business and how certain measures or agreements will relate to the present ones.”
Director, Domestic Business and Legal Affairs
“The lawyers at Fondia have the patience to listen and provide the necessary context before starting work. This makes the collaboration focused. Knowing the context makes it easier to achieve objectives. Within legal services I have often encountered pedantry which has resulted in not being able to see the wood for the trees. This is not the case with Fondia.”
“The service is swift and the quality is excellent. Fondia works with a strong focus on the client and always takes the issues as close to the finish line as possible. Therefore, it is easy for us as a client to continue our negotiations with our business partners. Whereas most lawyers often have their own jargon, Fondia takes care of things in a thoroughly professional manner while simultaneously presenting matters in a clear and understandable way.”
Business Area Director
“One of Fondia’s key advantages is that it has lawyers who understand every angle of a given situation. They are results oriented and focused on getting the deal done. And they do it in a way that fits the context of the deal.”
“We’ve received the expertise from highly experienced lawyers through Fondia’s Legal Department Service. I particularly appreciate the fact that Fondia can also recommend solutions that include a certain element of risk. And if the risk materializes, they know how to proceed. This is what I call entrepreneurial legal advice! Usually lawyers have a very cautious attitude and avoid anything involving potential risk.”
"Fondia has made our everyday life easier. For example, we are now able to request different reports that would otherwise take up too much of our time. The reports have been impressive and extensive. They do not focus on the little things, but instead concentrate on the matter at hand.”
