FINANCIAL REGULATION & COMPLIANCE
Finance and insurance is one of the most thoroughly and complexly regulated fields.
We are a reliable and skilled partner in all issues you may encounter due to regulation and market changes.
In addition to client assignments, we participate actively in legislative work and in developing market practices. Merja Kivelä currently chairs the Finnish Bar Association’s Securities Market and Finance Law Expert Committee and Janne Lauha is an appointed expert of the Finnish Ministry of Justice in matters relating to securities law.
You will benefit from the most up-to-date information concerning the market and from our excellent contacts with the authorities. Our expertise will be of particular use in situations where regulations are still in the formative stage and no application practices have yet been established. In international regulatory matters, you will have access to our unique network of law firms.
