With strong offices in Stockholm, Helsinki and Copenhagen no other truly integrated international law firm is able to match Bird & Bird’s range of experience across the Nordic region.
The Nordics has a highly educated mobile workforce, with innovative businesses being driven by talent coming out of some of the leading Universities and centres of research in Northern Europe. Low start-up costs and a favourable climate for entrepreneurs give Denmark, Finland and Sweden all a place among the best countries in the EU in which to start a business.
Bird & Bird has worked in the region for over 15 years. Our work has covered numerous cross-border Nordic matters in all major sectors and practice areas and involved many of the region's most prominent and successful companies. In particular we have advised companies in tech & comms, media and financial services sectors.
We stand out in the Nordic market as the first international firm with a presence in the key Nordic jurisdictions of Denmark, Finland and Sweden. Our 130 lawyers are spread across our four Nordic offices, enabling us to mobilise appropriate resources to support our clients on cross-border Nordic matters. In addition to the strong Nordic service offering in our offices in Sweden, Finland and Denmark, we have close working relationships with high quality local firms in Norway and Iceland.
