Annamari Friskopf

Senior Associate, Member of the Finnish Bar

I joined Castrén & Snellman in 2015 as an associate lawyer. I have assisted in a variety of both domestic and cross-border transactions, including private equity and venture capital investments. What I particularly enjoy is that I can, as a transaction lawyer, combine my widespread fascination in different fields of law and business.

My key focus lies in IPR and ICT-intensive transactions. I feel that questions related to technology, intellectual property rights and data protection have an increasingly significant role in any transaction and in almost all fields of business. I find it intriguing how technological development creates new opportunities and challenges old procedures which also results in new challenges from a legal point of view. Particularly interesting questions also relate to the value of data and data management.

I actively participate in the development of the tools and model documents of our transactions team. I enjoy being part of developing new procedures, by means of which we can, in an even better and more efficient way, utilise the information we hold so that added value is provided to our clients.

Prior to my graduation, I worked as a trainee at Castrén & Snellman and in another business law firm in Finland. I also gathered experience from an insurance company and in the legal information department of a major publishing firm. In addition to my studies at the University of Helsinki, I have also studied law at the Erasmus University Rotterdam in the Netherlands.
