Castrén & Snellman advised Nordea Bank Abp with respect to Finnish law when the parent company’s registered office was transferred to Finland on 1 October 2018. The re-domiciliation from Sweden to Finland was carried out by way of a reversed cross-border merger, where the former parent company Nordea Bank AB (publ) merged with its Finnish subsidiary Nordea Bank Abp. Nordea Bank AB (publ) has been dissolved and all its assets and liabilities have been transferred to Nordea Bank Abp, which now is the parent company of  Nordea Group. Nordea Bank Abp received the necessary licence from the European Central Bank in June 2018.
