Hannu Huotilainen

Counsel, Member of the Finnish Bar

I advise both domestic and international clients in assignments related to capital markets and financial regulation. I am specialised in legal and regulatory matters across the financial sector with a specific focus on regulatory frameworks governing the operations of credit institutions, investment service providers, fund management companies, alternative investment fund managers and payment service providers. My core competencies also include regulation applicable to fintech companies and capital markets participants, including listed companies and other issuers of financial instruments.

I have a wide experience in assisting regulated entities in strategic regulatory issues and structuring their operations to meet both their commercial goals and fulfil their regulatory obligations. As an expert in transactions in the financial sector, I have participated in numerous M&A transactions involving regulated entities. I have also assisted in several fund formation assignments. Our clients have praised me for my ability to provide clear and solution-oriented answers to most complex legal issues as well as for my ability to create solutions that add value to clients.

Prior to joining Castrén & Snellman, I worked several years in various positions in the financial sector, including as legal counsel in a credit institution and as market supervisor at the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority.
