Controversies[edit]

Lemminkäinen and seven smaller companies were convicted of forming a price cartel to overcharge local authorities millions of euros for road paving work (asphalt). In 1999 the Supreme Administrative Court of Finland ruled that the companies colluded on prices and other matters at least between 1994 and 2002. Helsinki District Court was in November 2013 ordered the companies to pay the largest damages in Finnish legal history: 40m euros to forty Finnish municipalities.[2]
