Traditions.

Procopé & Hornborg was established in 1918 when senior lawyers Lars Hornborg and Hjalmar Procopé joined forces. The founding partners were actively involved in politics and various fields of business life. They played an essential role in the early stages of the Finnish Bar Association while also contributing to legislation for the legal profession in Finland.

The firm expanded and had by the 1970s achieved an established status as the legal counsel for a number of major Finnish and international companies. Building on our history and traditions, we continue to provide high-quality services that meet the expectations of our clients amidst a constantly evolving business environment.
