We advised Ramboll Finland Oy in the sale of shareholding in Ramboll Environment OÜ
Ramboll Finland Oy sold its food and environment testing business to Eurofins Scientific. The transaction also included the divestment of the shareholding in  Ramboll Environment OÜ and Ellex Raidla advised Ramboll Finalnd Oy in the transaction.
 
Ramboll has built a clear market leadership in Finland throughout its 100-year history, offering the widest range of analytical services for environment testing. Its laboratories serve industrial companies, public municipalities as well as consulting companies. The company employs 109 staff across 4 laboratories in the southern region around Helsinki, as well as at a satellite laboratory in Tallinn, Estonia.
 
Lone A. Clowes, Regional Director at Ramboll Environment & Health noted the following: “While Ramboll Analytics has a strong foothold on the Finnish market, it is a very specialised service requiring dedicated development and investment strategies. We believe that the analytics business will have the best development opportunities in a company that is fully focused on the laboratory sector”.
 
Ramboll Finland Oy was advised by Ellex Raidla partner Sven Papp and senior associate Gerda Liik.
Ellex Raidla successfully represented BLRT Grupp AS and its shareholder Algaves OÜ in a dividend dispute
The minority shareholders of BLRT Grupp AS filed a claim with a court to request dividends pursuant to minutes that seemingly reflected a general meeting of shareholders that in fact had not taken place.
 
The dispute covered both the authenticity of the minutes as well as the request for dividends. The courts found that there is no basis for ordering dividends pursuant to minutes drawn up by the minority shareholders.
 
What raises questions in this case is that the Estonian judicial authorities did not regard a claim made on a basis of fabricated minutes as something that would belong to the field of criminal law.
 
The clients were represented by partner Arne Ots and senior associates  Neve Uudelt and Martin-Johannes Raude.
