Andreas Slotte Appointed as Economist at Castrén & Snellman

Andreas SlotteCastrén & Snellman has appointed Andreas Slotte as an in-house economist to assist the firm’s clients particularly in competition law cases, disputes and corporate transactions. He has previously worked at RBB Economics, a competition economics consultancy, where he was based in Stockholm. At Castrén & Snellman, Andreas will work together with our lawyers in assignments that call for a combination of economic and legal expertise.

‘Understanding the client’s business is one of the top priorities of a corporate lawyer. In an increasingly complex world, this cannot be achieved with legal expertise alone. As our in-house economist, Andreas will add valuable skills to our expert teams and enable us to find new ways of helping our clients succeed’ says Managing Partner Sakari Lukinmaa.

Andreas Slotte has several years of experience in economic consultancy and advisory work, covering both the Nordic as well as other major European jurisdictions. He also has a personal interest in technological innovations and is well-versed in employing technical solutions when advising clients.

Economic expertise is in high demand in the fields of business law that require an understanding of markets and market impacts. Competition law is a case in point, but corporate transactions also belong to this category. Another domain in which economics is often applied are business disputes, especially damages litigation.
