Pauliina Hamara

Office Manager

I am the Office Manager at our Helsinki office and responsible for Castrén & Snellman’s assistant function. I develop and coordinate the work of our assistants to meet the different needs of the lawyers in all our service categories. I love my work because each day is certainly different, posing interesting challenges for me.

I also work as the assistant of Senior Partner Pekka Jaatinen. Working as an assistant gives me a concrete understanding of the business of law and helps me in supervising our assistants in their performance of their own work. At the same time, I obtain what I like to call ‘insider information’ about the challenges and demands of the assistant function and of how it needs to be developed.
