Co-operation with Fondia is uncomplicated, and we value your proactive and business-oriented approach. It’s beneficial for co-operation that we don't have to introduce you or your people to our situation or business, as your approach ensures that the various lawyers in the team are always aware of what is happening with us.

Working with Fondia is clear and uncomplicated. This is obviously something they take into account when they hire people. We appreciate that Fondia’s lawyers are swift in their responses as this is of the utmost importance. We do not always have to rush but it is important to know that a matter is being attended to efficiently.

Fondia’s way of working is effective and straightforward, and this does not merely apply to our contact person. You get an excellent service from everyone at Fondia. I cannot think of any areas that could be improved upon. Fondia is an exceptionally good partner and everything works wonderfully.

We were planning to divest a subsidiary in Finland and we decided to have Fondia undertake the task. We already had a long term co-operation with Fondia and so we knew them and they knew us. We also wanted to have a legal company that would be really hands-on, meaning we could have an entire team working with us.

Since the spring of 2007, Fondia has been in charge of a multitude of judicial matters relating to the founding of the company, employer’s responsibilities, international agreements, patient advocacies, financing and the issuing of shares.

Fondia has highly experienced lawyers, many of whom have previously worked within the industry sector. This means that their legal advice results in added insights. Fondia’s advice has not been confined to legal matters only; they are also equipped to comment on business matters if so required.

Fondia had magnificent previous experience in complicated financing transactions. We had a time pressure and Fondia knew how to complete the process in due time - pushing the counterparties as well. We wouldn’t have been able to do it without Fondia.

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.

A recurring scenario for us at Semantix is that we email Fondia without any prior warning, even if the matter is relatively urgent – and this works fantastically. When we have a specific contact lawyer in Sweden, we can, in principle, ask for advice about any question, at any time.

As Fondia’s customer, we are really happy and our experience of working with them has been positive. We have now continued our cooperation in the form of legal department. What has been best in our opinion is that we have always been able to rely on Fondia and that all practical matters – lots of different paperwork and everything else – have always been completed in an enjoyable way. With Fondia, we can trust that good contracts are negotiated for us and that we receive good sparring from our lawyers. Communication with Fondia is easy and straightforward.

Fondia has built tools and services in a very customer-oriented way and we have picked bits and pieces from it, such as contract administration and piracy surveillance. Fondia’s lawyers are able to speak our language, they are practical and very much hands-on.

We receive a co-ordinated legal service from Fondia. One email or phone call from us, and things will move forward immediately. Our contact at Fondia is always able to direct us to the right expert for each situation, and they offer expertise across a wide range of specialist legal fields. Finding the right person would be too time consuming for me during hectic times.
Ossi Alastalo
CEO
Parmaco Ltd.
’’
Whilst the expertise provided is at the same level as their big competitors, Fondia’s lawyers have a more relaxed way of doing things. And it is pleasing that the co-operation can be made more comfortable and that the customer relations do not have to be too formal.
Samuli Siljamäki
CFO
Siili Solutions Plc

We work with Fondia on a daily basis and we are very happy with their support. By taking the role of a legal department they know us well. Fondia’s lawyers are very professional and they have a good understanding of international business, which is very useful for Blueair.
Jonas Holst

Fondians are suitably active and genuine professionals who always seem to think about the best operating model for the customer. We feel that we can trust their judgment and that with them we are in safe hands. Fondia takes full responsibility of the customer, which is made possible by knowing the customer’s business and their own level of expertise.
Risto Rautakorpi

Fondia’s service model for legal services is ideal when there is much to do and major organisational changes are implemented. You get assigned a contact who is like your own lawyer. Furthermore, Fondia’s team takes the initiative and maintains or reminds us of things - maybe because of that one also uses the legal services more often. I am happy with our arrangement with Fondia. And I’m not easy to satisfy. This model works.
Juha-Heikki Tanskanen

The cooperation with Fondia is part of our everyday work. It is important that the collaboration includes dialogue and that the partner also proactively informs us regarding what we should or should not do and what is now required. We can rely on our Fondia team to keep their eyes open and advise us if a matter needs to be considered.

I think Fondia is a very modern and professional company that prioritises my needs: I am always the most important. They put in the effort to understand my situation and the need behind my work. This is the first time I feel like this with a lawyer. I feel like they spend their time efficiently and that I get a lot of value for my money. In my opinion, we understand each other, which creates security for me in the long run.
Björn Edlund

Fondia’s lawyer has been able to easily grasp our business and operational environment. In particular, IPR and liability issues are tricky and we have gone through them step by step. Fondia’s lawyer does not hesitate to take a stand on matters and she really represents our company well in the practical negotiation situations. This is extremely important for us as we are a small company.
Antti Punkari
Chairman of the Board
XMLdation Ltd
’’
The lawyers at Fondia are professional, very helpful and extremely flexible. It is a huge benefit, in my opinion, that there are adequate resources even when more demanding assignments arise. And as we have appointed contact persons and a team, everyone is well-informed all of the time. Fondia is also proactive in making suggestions using their own initiative and this means that things move on according to plans, which is really positive.

We sealed the investment round in a professional manner and even the representative of our counterpart was complimentary regarding the work carried out by Fondia’s expert. He managed the task in a constructive manner, focussing on solutions and he maintained an open­minded approach throughout the process. We succeeded in getting really good terms and the investor was also happy with the outcome.
Janne Anttila

The team that Fondia put together was spot on - they had an excellent understanding of the kind of people we needed. We have received legal aid on matters involving contracts, information society and data protection. We have been very satisfied with the Fondia team.
Krista Koskinen

Fonecta Ltd.

Fondia’s approach to matters is both flexible and solution-oriented. I also appreciate their enterprise culture. As a lawyer myself, I can say that lawyers usually tend to overcomplicate simple things whereas Fondia aims to solve matters instead.
Timo Lepistö

’’
The fixed monthly fee of Fondia’s Legal Department Service is outstanding. It can be planned into the budget and the resource provision always exists in principle. This is why the threshold to use the service is lower. The service can be adapted to our busy seasons: we need more services from Fondia from November to March when we have 200 employees. Among other things, the contracts of employment usually take a lot of time to prepare.
Ilkka Länkinen
CEO
Santapark Ltd.
’’
I believe in long-lasting partnerships. Another approach could be to ask a few firms for tenders every time a project comes along. However, as we know Fondia this means we can get straight down to business when a case comes up. Fondia knows our course of action and we can trust that we have the best possible expertise.
