The retail sector is in major transition. Digitalisation and eShopping are disrupting the businesses of traditional retailers, while creating new shopping opportunities and retail channels. Legislators are also engaged in an intense debate on the deregulation of opening hours and various retail restrictions.
The service sector accounts for 60% of Finland’s GDP and its role as an employer continues to grow. The same trend can be seen across the developed world.
Finland’s social welfare and healthcare reform, obligations related to the EU’s incorporation policy and the resulting competition neutrality and other competition legislation are transforming Finland’s service sector, particularly the public sector. Digitalisation is also generating both new opportunities and challenges for all players.
In their current state of transition, the retail and service sectors now need a range of legal services. We represent a wide range of service and retail clients, providing comprehensive legal expertise that meets all of their needs.
