The Board of the Finnish Bar Association has appointed new trustees to its committees and legal expert teams for the new term of office. We are very proud to announce that several Hannes Snellman lawyers have been elected to these positions for the 2020-2022 term.

Partner Klaus Ilmonen has been appointed as a member of the Security Markets and Finance Law Team, Partner Panu Siitonen as the chair of the Intellectual Property Law Team, Specialist Partner Jan Lilius as a member of the Insolvency Law Team, Partner Anna-Maria Tamminen as a member of the Civil Process Law Team, Partner Heikki Vesikansa as a member of the Tax Law Team, and Partner Maria Wasastjerna as a member of the Professional Committee.

The Finnish Bar Association’s legal expert teams comprise roughly 125 attorneys-at-law who represent the top of their fields. The members of the teams are also frequently heard by the Finnish Parliament on legislative amendment projects. The Committees of the Finnish Bar Association prepare matters relating to themes of particular importance to the Bar Association for discussion by the Board. They are tasked with keeping track of issues related to the development of attorney services and judicial conditions and preparing proposals for decisions in these areas.

Hannes Snellman has a heritage of serving the community. We are involved in a wide range of initiatives related to corporate citizenship by contributing with our expertise and resources to promote values and causes that benefit our community and, inter alia, the development of the legal profession.
