Hannes Snellman has won M&A Legal Adviser of the Year for Finland at the 8th edition of the European M&A Awards, organised by Mergermarket and the Financial Times last week in London.

The Mergermarket M&A Awards are among the most prestigious awards for the M&A advisory community recognizing excellence in corporate, private equity, banking and legal M&A. The Awards are given to law firms that have distinguished themselves during the year  through delivering outstanding service to their clients in local and international markets. The Awards are unique in utilising both M&A transaction data from Mergermarket and independent expert opinion from a panel of leading M&A practitioners to identify the winners.

Commenting on the Award the Head of M&A, Sten Olsson, said: “Winning the award is a fantastic result for our team and tops what has been a stellar year for our Finnish M&A practice. Our leading position in the Finnish M&A market is testament to the many years of hard work that our team has put into ensuring the success of our clients' deals. We will continue to strive to maintain our leadership as the legal team of reference for complex M&A deals in Finland."

”The deal flow and the landmark cases we have worked on in the past year are particularly rewarding considering the limited growth overall in Finland and Europe”, said Head of Capital Markets Klaus Ilmonen.
