Our Banking & Finance team is looking for Associates to join our firm in permanent positions.

“We assist both domestic and international finance market participants on a variety of challenging assignments, ranging from complex financing arrangements to novel legal questions within the field of property law. As a member of our Banking & Finance team, I have been entrusted with these kinds of assignments from day one, and I have really enjoyed the steep learning curve and the supportive and inclusive working atmosphere at Borenius.” – Jill Winter, Associate

Borenius currently employs over 200 people and is one of the largest and most experienced law firms in Finland. We provide high quality services in all areas of law for our corporate clients. We have offices in Helsinki, Tampere, St. Petersburg, London and New York. 

Your team?

Our market-leading Banking & Finance team is highly rated by domestic and international finance markets participants as well as by the leading international legal directories. We have successfully maintained a very large coverage of both the domestic and cross-border transactions occurring on the Finnish market, and we are always keen on providing the highest quality work for our clients with a focus on finding the best solutions. We are now looking to further strengthen our team in order to be able to respond even better to the high demands of our clients.

Why us?

We offer the opportunity to work on some of the most demanding finance-related assignments on the market as a valued member of a highly-recognised and skilled team. This means working with clients that value quality, personal attention and business acumen.

Our team is committed to providing top-notch service on each assignment. We want our clients to feel that our team is always up-to-date and provides market-leading advice in any given situation. In order to meet this goal, we have made internal training and continuous development a top priority for our team.

We will support your personal career path by offering individualised and supportive mentoring, coaching and leadership initiatives. We will provide you with further training and skills, mainly in the form of tailored in-house training modules and specialised courses in Finland and abroad that will enable you to become a leader in the field.

Our team is known for its emphasis on team spirit and collegiality. We believe that every member of our Banking & Finance team needs to have a strong sense of commitment in order to provide excellent service to our clients. As such, employee satisfaction is paramount to us. Despite our high performance criteria, our working environment reflects our low hierarchy and great atmosphere.

Do you share our values?

Our core values of succeeding together, respecting others and taking pride in our work manifest in how we work. We understand the importance of private life, and we have actively created ways to balance work and free time. We truly believe that our success is measured by the success and gratification of our individual team members.

What do you need to succeed?

You are either newly graduated or have a few years of work experience as a lawyer. Relevant experience in the field of banking and finance is not a requirement, but you must have a genuine interest in becoming a great finance lawyer. You are proud of the work you do and always aim for outstanding performance. We also expect you to be eager to learn new things and to possess a great attitude to best serve our corporate clients.

Because of the type of work we handle, fluency in written and spoken Finnish and English is required.
