Helinä Teittinen

Associate, Master of Laws

I advise our clients on matters related to the environment, infrastructure and natural resources.

Prior to joining Castrén & Snellman, I worked at the Finnish Ministry of Transport and Communications on matters related to transport services. The experience increased my interest in environmental and energy matters as well as my understanding about the national and EU politics and the overall impact of the Green Transition on environmental legislation.

Alongside my studies, I worked in other Finnish business law firms, at the European Parliament and in several Finnish ministries. As part of my master’s studies, I spent one academic year at the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich in Germany, where I gained a comprehensive understanding about the German legal system.

I am currently undertaking geography studies at the University of Helsinki, in order to understand the state of our environment more broadly than just from a merely legal perspective.

I also assist our clients in German.
