Emmi Karvinen

Senior Associate, Member of the Finnish Bar

I advise clients in domestic and international tax matters. I am especially invested in tax matters of family-owned companies and their owner-entrepreneurs, from predictive wealth management measures to the implementation of generational change as well as assistance in possible tax litigation matters.

The ever-changing regulatory field causes challenges in planning the future of privately owned businesses. My task is to support the companies and their owners in this as efficiently as possible whilst ensuring that the solution chosen, for example in case of succession of family businesses or corporate restructuring, is adaptive enough. I also assist our clients in matters related to the wealth of owner-entrepreneurs and its management as well as family and estate tax. In addition to this, I have versatile experience in assisting our clients in tax appeal matters.

Before returning to Castrén & Snellman, I worked in a financial company as an in-house lawyer. In this position, I got to see in practice the kinds of needs SMEs have in the field of legal advice, not to mention the complexity and breadth of the issues these companies have to tackle. Equipped with this valuable experience, I trust that I can provide clear and pragmatic advice to our clients. I believe that the absolute advantage of a big law firm is that all matters related to the business and its ownership can be handled with one point of contact.

I have also worked as a tax specialist of private companies and their owners in a major audit firm.
