Castrén & Snellman Holds its Strong Position in the New Edition of Legal 500

Again, like last year, the Legal 500 EMEA has ranked eight of Castrén & Snellman’s services in Tier 1 and two services in Tier 2. The publication reviewed a total of ten practice areas in Finland this year. Our St Petersburg office’s M&A expertise maintained its position in Tier 2.

Partners Marko Hentunen, Jan Kuhlefelt, Anna Kuusniemi-Laine, Niklas Langenskiöld, Rickard Langenskiöld, Kimmo Rekola, Tero Tuomisto and Matias Wallgren were once again ranked as Leading Lawyers in Finland. The head of our IP practice, Partner Sakari Salonen, was also recognised as a Leading Lawyer for the first time this year.

This year, the publication also mentioned several of our lawyers for the first time, including Sami Lindström, Anne Vanhala, Eija Warma and Miika Pinomaa.

The publication had, e.g. the following to say about our firm:

Banking & Finance: Department head Tero Tuomisto ‘ensures that even the smallest details will be treated and delivered as promised’.

Dispute Resolution: Castrén & Snellman’s growing practice is led by  Marko Hentunen and is noted for its ‘great service’ and ‘specialist teams who really know their area’… The ‘conscientious’ Anders Forss is also recommended.

EU & Competition: Castrén & Snellman’s team is praised for its ‘good understanding of business and clients’ financial considerations’.

Real Estate & Construction: Castrén & Snellman acted for OP Financial Group on one of the largest real estate transactions to date in Finland, concerning the construction of the REDI shopping centre and parking facilities in Helsinki.

TMT: Castrén & Snellman is praised for its knowledge of data privacy legislation.
