Tomi Kemppainen

Partner, Member of the Finnish Bar

I am the head of our Employment service. I have advised Castrén & Snellman’s domestic and foreign clients in all aspects of employment law for a decade already. My practice has a particular focus on general employment issues, outsourcing arrangements and labour disputes. I have solid experience of dispute resolution in general courts and the Labour Court, of handling the employment law issues that arise in connection with the planning and implementation of M&A deals and outsourcing arrangements, as well as of redundancy procedures.

I have gained an extensive understanding of Finnish business life through handling our clients’ cases. I am especially familiar with the aviation, maritime transport and technology industries as well as the service and commercial sector, the finance and insurance sector, the media and the IT service sectors as well as the construction and real estate sector.

In addition to providing assistance in employment law, I am a frequent lecturer on employment law for our clients, in training programmes arranged by private training companies and at Finnish universities.

What I like most about my work is offering our clients practical solutions and supporting their business activities in challenging and urgent situations. Based on the client feedback I have received, I have succeeded well in this. Working with employment matters requires good interpersonal skills and sensitivity, which makes my work both interesting and versatile. I enjoy working at Castrén & Snellman because of the wide-ranging assignments I get to work on and because of our great working culture.

Besides my law degree from the University of Lapland, I have also studied in Edinburgh, where I participated in the European Lawyers Programme in 2010.

For several years, Chambers Europe has ranked me among the leading Finnish legal experts in the field.
