Mikko Heinonen, new managing partner in Helsinki

30 June 2011

The partners of Hannes Snellman have elected Mikko Heinonen as the new Managing Partner in Helsinki, as of 1 September 2011, following Carl-Henrik Wallin’s decision to step down.

Mikko Heinonen joined Hannes Snellman in 1997 and became partner at the firm in 2003. Mikko is currently Head of Public M&A in Helsinki, and has been a member of Hannes Snellman’s Board for several years.

Mikko continues to develop the Helsinki team’s strengths and its participation in implementing the firm’s Nordic strategy, in cooperation with the offices in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Moscow and St. Petersburg.

The first half of 2011 has been very good for Hannes Snellman - locally and across borders - with a high level of activity within both transactions and conflict management. We have been involved in many of the largest transactions and high profile conflict management assignments in the Nordic region, as well as in many strategic projects for our clients in Russia. We promise our clients uncompromising attention and clear legal advice that takes into account the business context.
