Website description

You can use the horizontal menu to find your way to the main sections, i.e. the core functions of our office: Trade Register, Register of Associations, Register of Foundations, Enterprise Mortgages, Trademarks, Registered Designs, Patents, and Utility Models. Our services and the About us section have their own separate pages on the website.

The website's colours are based on our house style, i.e. the blue colour of our office, which is highlighted in places with other house style colours.

The layout was designed by advertising agency Zeeland, and the website usability tests were conducted by Adage Oy. The banners are designed by advertising agency Kitchen. Abako Media Oy is responsible for the technical implementation, and the website was built by using the Abako Stato 5 Portal program.
