Finance

Formulating strategies,
achieving success.

Financing plays a key role in the economy. To ensure financing and complex transactions are successful, you need a competent partner who can explain not only the incumbent risks and opportunities, but can also offer down-to-earth advice. Here at GSK Stockmann, our many years of experience contribute to creating the perfect legal structure for your financing needs and developing solutions tailored to you. 

Your specific economic goals form the starting point for our work. Based on these goals, we then liaise closely with you to develop a solution which is legally watertight – as well as highly practical and workable. Depending on the requirements for the respective transaction, we can also set up interdisciplinary teams with colleagues in other fields of law. This enables us to offer you comprehensive advice covering all aspects of your financing plans.
