Freja Väyrynen

Senior Associate, Member of the Finnish Bar

I advise our clients on assignments relating to private equity and funds. I have experience in e.g. fund formation, joint venture arrangements, fund investments and secondary transactions. In addition, I regularly work on mergers and acquisitions as well as with general corporate and contract law.

Prior to joining Castrén & Snellman, I worked as a partner at a Nordic private equity firm, where I was, in addition to legal tasks, responsible for fundraising and investor relations for our international fund manager clients. I have also worked for another leading Finnish law firm, where I advised clients on assignments relating to fund formation and investment management. What’s more, I have gained work experience from abroad, as I have lived and worked in Stockholm and Madrid.

Due to my background, I am familiar with both legal and commercial market practices and business needs of the industry. I am fluent in three languages and, thanks to my experience from abroad, I have a good understanding of international markets.
