Outstanding Q1 results by COBALT Finnish Desk according to MergerMarket


According to the latest Global and regional M&A: Q1 2017 league table report of MergerMarket, an independent M&A intelligence service, published in April, COBALT Law Firm has an outstanding 4th position by deal value amongst the law firms which advised on the transactions in the Finnish region in the first quarter of 2017. 

COBALT`s Finnish Desk, targeted for inbound and outbound cross-border business relations between the Baltic States and Finland has had the pleasure to advise several remarkable transactions lately. Just to mention few:

  • COBALT advised Santa Monica Networks Group on sale of its Estonian and Finnish subsidiaries to telecommunications company Elisa Corporation and Latvian and Lithuanian subsidiaries to Livonia Partners.
  • COBALT counselled the acquisition of Betonimestarit-Group by AS TMB, a major manufacturer of pre-cast reinforced concrete elements. This is the largest merger and acquisition transaction of an Estonian company in the Finnish market since the one involving Tallink and Silja Line.
  • We also advised DAVA Agravis Machinery Holding A/S, a company of the Danish Agro a.m.b.a. group on acquisition of 45% of shares in three Baltic subsidiaries of Konekesko Oy selling agricultural machinery.
