Firm Background

As a true full service business law firm, we provide the highest quality legal expertise and solutions to support all of our clients' successful business ventures. The continuity of our unique traditions since 1888 distinguishes Castrén & Snellman from other Finnish law firms.

Our full service concept, with 15 primary areas of expertise, allows us to provide in-depth specialization in all relevant areas of business law. Our clients receive the benefit of our lawyers' broad range of specialized, professional expertise, primarily gained from practical, hands-on commercial experience.

The values and traditions we have developed the last 120 years have created a unique foundation and perspective at Castrén & Snellman - a reliable partner for every business enterprise.  These values and traditions have also helped us to develop into a modern company with a curious and sensible attitude towards new thinking in both internal- and client processes. Over these years, we have established relationships with leading law firms, investment banks and other professional organisations worldwide to enhance the legal services we provide to our clients. We emphasize the development of our lawyers' specialized knowledge and skills. Their ability to do business in several languages, e.g. in Swedish, English, German, Russian, French and Italian, is just one part of the service we offer our clients.
