Finnish firm Juridia Bützow has announced the completion of its merger with international firm Eversheds. It will now be known as JB Eversheds.

It is its second major merger in just over a year following the joining together of legacies Juridia and Bützow in late 2013, one of the biggest such mergers in Finnish history.

The firm's five domestic offices will now be connected to 52 others in the Eversheds network that is spread across 31 countries in EMEA and Asia..

"By deepening cooperation with Eversheds we can improve and extend our services for both our Finnish and our international clients," said managing partner Harri Tolppanen. "We share a common strategy to continuously strengthen our position in our domestic market whilst expanding our reach internationally, both across the Nordic region and globally."

Juridia Bützow did have a long-standing relationship with Eversheds prior to the merger and Tolppanen said they now looked forward to future successes as part of the international firm's network.
