Murder, manslaughter, rape, child abuse, fraud, embezzlement… They are our work – we are on your side. We will secure your rights and defend you. We always have time to listen to what you have to say, regardless of whether you are the victim of a crime or the defendant, i.e. the person accused of a crime.

In case of a criminal case, you should turn to a lawyer as soon as possible, preferably already during the preliminary investigation. Our experience has proven that this is an issue whose significance you cannot emphasise too much. Many suspects confess things that they should not in interrogations. The more serious the crime, the faster you should contact us. You can call us almost anytime in urgent issues. Our office can provide you with a private legal aid counsel, like the one you would get from the legal aid office. We are also entitled to handle criminal cases and disputes falling under the responsibility of legal aid offices. In such a case, the Government will pay part of our fee.

Did you know? We also cooperate with Victim Support Finland. Some of our lawyers have been doing voluntary work or worked as trainers at Victim Support Finland since 2006.

Errors done during the preliminary investigation are difficult to correct at a later point during the criminal procedure. Our lawyers have extensive experience in taking care of ‘traditional’ criminal cases, such as traffic offences, fraud, offences against the person, such as assaults, etc., financial offences, offences by debtors, sex offences, rapes, child abuse cases and countless other cases, even the unpleasant ones. We have also handled many cases that have received a lot of publicity.

Financial offences usually involve accounting or taxation. The crime may be called false accounting, abuse of insider information or business secrets, dishonesty by a debtor, fraud by a debtor, favouring a creditor or a tax offence, for example. What is typical for such cases is that they often involve major financial interests. In most financial offence cases, what the accused needs is lawyers who understand accounting and taxation, and know how to apply criminal law in such cases. We have strong expertise in financial issues, accounting and taxation, which means that we can offer our clients the best possible defence in financial offence cases.

We can also handle cases that require special expertise, such as violations of the secrecy of communications, copyright offences, criminal cases and criminal liability in healthcare, occupational safety cases, military offences, doping offences, offences in office as well as environmental offences.

The victim of a crime or plaintiff is the person who suffers from the crime. The victim is entitled to receive compensation from the offender for the damage caused, such as compensation for pain and suffering, temporary harm or financial damage.

Our lawyers will secure your right to receive the sufficient compensation laid down in law.

If you are the defendant, i.e. the person suspected of a crime, you always have the right to use a counsel during the police investigation and later in court.

Both the defendant and the plaintiff may be entitled to cost-free legal proceedings, i.e. have the right to receive legal aid or legal protection based on their homeowner’s insurance.

A restraining order means that a person is prohibited from contacting another person in order to safeguard the latter person’s life, health, liberty or peace.

Most restraining orders are imposed in cases where a person’s spouse is harassing them by constantly calling them or sending them text messages, or by trying to come to their home uninvited. Anyone who has a justified reason to feel that another person is threatening or harassing them has the right to apply for a restraining order. A restraining order cannot be applied to people who live in the same household, however. You should use our lawyers as an aid if you need a restraining order.

The person to whom the restraining order has been imposed may not go and meet the protected person or otherwise contact them or try to contact them. They may not follow or monitor the protected person.

If the restraining order is an extended restraining order, it means that the person may not be in the immediate vicinity of the protected person’s home, holiday home, place of work or any other similar location named by the court.

Restraining orders are always processed by courts of law as urgent cases. They are processed in similar judicial proceedings as criminal cases where an account of the case is given, both parties are heard and witnesses are heard, if necessary.
