We know an inclusive culture, alongside a diverse workforce, makes us more innovative and dynamic. The ability to connect the dots and leap to inspired solutions can't be underestimated. So, we stay curious, shut down silos and work in truly international teams. And by giving our people a voice we give our clients access to a whole world of expertise.
We’re committed to treating everyone with kindness and respect. And creating an environment where everyone is encouraged to be their unique selves and thrive at all stages of their career.
To enhance inclusion, understanding oneself and others is key. We want to support our employees to prosper at work and in life, so we provide tools for better self-knowledge: and understanding of different personality and communication styles.
We believe that the legal community in Finland could benefit from more diversity, as it brings new perspectives and voices to the conversation.
To contribute to this long-term development, we are collaborating with two diverse comprehensive schools, Kannelmäki and Vesala in Helsinki, to inspire children at a young age to choose law as a profession. We visit the schools to talk about the legal profession and give 8th and 9th graders, 14–15-year-old children, the opportunity to do a 1-2 week long TET traineeship at our Helsinki office.
We have had a diverse group of girls and boys as TET trainees, and we also hope to reach children who would not have thought of law as their career choice. The scheme has brought many meaningful conversations and we hope it helps to encourage the kids in working towards their goals.
Sustainability is a core strategic initiative for us – It’s vital to our people, our clients and our planet. We embrace the step change needed to transform our business; not just minimising our environmental impact but, as a global citizen, making a positive contribution towards a more sustainable future.
We believe that technology can be a force for good. Our work with some of the world’s most cutting-edge companies gives us first-hand insight into the innovative approaches that create a new blueprint for sustainable living, so where possible we apply this to our own firm too.
We routinely manage our buildings responsibly, consider the impact of business travel, reduce waste and consumption, and recycle wherever we can. More importantly, we commit to business decisions that support our sustainability pledges alongside our long-term economic growth strategies.
For us Pro Bono isn’t an add on. We are passionate about making a positive difference to people’s lives, and giving back to the communities we work within
We give Pro Bono our time, consideration, and full expertise. Because our culture is focused on making it possible. Possible for our people, our clients, and our communities. And we believe we can open up possibilities for individuals and organisations in need, by contributing the time, legal expertise, skills, and resources needed to progress their cause.
It’s all the more satisfying when we can work together, with our clients and other key stakeholders to foster and develop collaborative opportunities that have a greater positive social impact as a result.
We work with great clients doing great things. Things that have a real impact on the way the world does business, and how we all live.
We work alongside our clients to champion initiatives that make an impact on the community around us. And our people dedicate time through volunteering and fundraising, and partner with charities across the world to truly amplify our impact.
We take pride in being a responsible employer and an active player in our community supporting both children, youngsters and elderly people through schools and wellbeing organisations.
This work is about trust between you and your customer. What I really like in my practice area, Real Estate, is that it's really concrete. It includes both development projects and transactions ̶ and a lot more.

An inspiring and supportive workplace means everything to me. When studying law at university you focus on learning the main principles of legal theory. Actually practicing law in a business law firm can be quite different, although I would argue in a good way!

My greetings to the young women studying law today is that you can have it all. I’m the first lawyer in my family.
Teea Kemppinen Partner
I like my job because I get to work with so many different clients and legal matters. There is also a lot to learn. One thing I really appreciate is that the firm is truly international. I work with my European and overseas colleagues on a weekly basis, and we meet regularly with our overseas colleagues.
