Keski-Uudenmaan Kehittämiskeskus Oy received assistance in completing a business acquisition
Lindblad & Co received special praise from the client for their expertise, efficiency, and excellent customer service.
Lindblad & Co chosen from among several legal experts
Keski-Uudenmaan Kehittämiskeskus Oy, or Keuke for short, is a local development company that helps businesses in the Järvenpää, Karkkila, Kerava, Nurmijärvi, Pornainen, Sipoo, and Tuusula regions to develop and grow by offering business advisory services. Keuke is owned by the aforementioned municipalities and business organizations.
For about a year, a business acquisition had been planned between Keuke and Keski-Uudenmaan Uusyrityskeskus, where the business related to advising new entrepreneurs would be transferred from Uusyrityskeskus to Keuke. At last, the preparation of the purchase agreement became timely.
“We wanted assistance in making the business acquisition agreement from an experienced party. We requested quotes and references from several entities, and Lindblad & Co proved to be the best in this comparison. We were particularly convinced by their previous experience in assisting in similar deals,” explains Elina Pekkarinen, the CEO of Keuke, regarding the choice of the law firm.
Legal expertise is crucial in significant business acquisitions
Both parties in the deal recognized the benefits of legal assistance, so both Keuke and Keski-Uudenmaan Uusyrityskeskus were clients of Lindblad & Co in the process.
“We received assistance from Lindblad & Co in technical document drafting, but also consultative assistance in determining what needs to be considered when agreeing on a business acquisition and what the purchase agreement must contain. Additionally, we were guided on tax-related issues related to the business acquisition,” says Pekkarinen.
“I am entirely sure that if we had tried to handle the process ourselves, something essential would have been missing. It could have become expensive later, for example, through tax consequences. In matters like these, there is a need for a deep expert in the field who ensures that everything goes correctly and all the essential aspects are considered. By adopting this approach, we were able to mitigate financial risks,” Pekkarinen adds.
Legal services for municipalities and public entities
We offer municipalities and other public entities an effortless way to arrange necessary legal services and legal assistance. Lindblad & Co is a versatile law firm with offices in several different locations.
Positive feedback from business development professionals
The deal was successfully completed, and both parties were satisfied with the service received from Lindblad & Co.
“We are professionals in business development, so for that reason, we also pay a lot of attention to the quality of service. We appreciated the clarity and expertise of Lindblad & Co’s service. They have a strong experience in what they do and well-honed routines. We received truly first-class assistance and are very satisfied,” says Pekkarinen.
“In addition to expertise, Lindblad & Co’s service was fast and straightforward. Things were handled flexibly, considering the customer’s needs, and the price-to-quality ratio was also suitable, considering the substantial benefit it provided for us.”
Pekkarinen also emphasizes Lindblad & Co’s notable strength in clear and understandable communication.
“They master their core business, which is the law, but also excellent customer service. For example, during phone discussions, information was conveyed in simple language to ensure the customer understood what was going on.”
