Hannes Snellman Sells Its Russian Operations to Eversheds Sutherland

6 September 2017

Hannes Snellman has agreed to sell its Russian operations to Eversheds Sutherland. Hannes Snellman entered the Russian market in 2006 by acquiring ETL Law Offices. Hannes Snellman’s focus in Russia, with offices in Moscow and St. Petersburg, has been the same as in Finland and Sweden: to serve Nordic, international and local companies in significant business transactions and complex dispute resolution.

“After more than a decade of serving esteemed clients with a very experienced and proficient team in the Russian market, it is time for Hannes Snellman to hand over the reins to Eversheds Sutherland, a firm which is more than well equipped to further develop the solid practice at hand. We are confident that both clients and staff will be pleased with the opportunities that this new chapter brings. The team in Russia is very well functioning and delivers high quality. We will recommend the team to clients going forward and look forward to co-operating on joint assignments in the future as well,” says Senior Partner Johan Aalto.
