ABOUT US

What we do


We are empowering finance and legal professionals to become successful entrepreneurs. Many accountants and lawyers are good at what they do, but they don’t always have the knowledge or the tools to build a thriving business around their professional skills.

We believe that the majority of professionals are not rewarded fairly for their expertise. Through connecting this professional expertise with the right tools, guidance, and business experience, we’re building successful member firms together with the strong brand that clients look for in their partners.

Who we are

Comistar has three founding members – Markus Ahtola, Juha Ehrstedt and Mikk Maal. All of us have a background in the service industries (HR, finance, legal). Although we are finance professionals, our main passion has always been entrepreneurship and building a business around our skills. This is where Comistar comes into the picture. Comistar offers corporate governance services for small and midsize companies. The core areas we are focusing on are accounting, legal, audit and advisory.

Comistar HQ is in Switzerland, we operate in three countries through our own offices, and, have a network of partners across the globe. Our goal is to provide our clients with the competencies and the level of service that only big enterprises could access before. Comistar is utilizing the franchise business model to bring on the best talent – ambitious finance and legal professionals that want to be their own boss and build their businesses to thriving success stories.

Our history

Comistar was founded in 2012 in Switzerland, after years of experience in the HR, legal and accounting industry. Majority of the businesses in the accounting and law industry seemed to be struggling to find clients and balance the effort and reward ratio. They were overworking and not getting paid fairly for their efforts. After doing a thorough research it was obvious that it’s a common theme everywhere in the world.

That’s how Comistar was born. To create professional businesses that deliver much more value to the clients, and to deliver that value in a way that’s financially rewarding. Today, we are established in three countries (Switzerland, Finland, Estonia) in Europe, and boast a network of partners all over the world. As we have proven our business model many times over, we’re ready to give out licenses and open new Comistar offices together with talented and ambitious professionals.
