Tuomas Tuominen

Senior Associate

I joined Borenius for the first time in the autumn of 2018 as an Associate Trainee on Borenius’ Employment team. During my traineeship, I got the unique opportunity to experience the daily work life of an employment lawyer while surrounded by supportive colleagues. After I completed my traineeship, Borenius offered me the chance to stay on as a Thesis Trainee, and I was excited to accept. I graduated in the summer of 2019 and returned immediately to Borenius to work as an Associate on the same, familiar Employment team.

Borenius as an Employer

Jonna Yli-Äyhö

Senior Associate

I joined Borenius’ Tax team as an Associate shortly after I graduated in the spring of 2012. During my time at Borenius, I have advised clients on various demanding tax questions and participated in many interesting tax structuring and tax dispute projects. One of the highlights of my Borenius career is my secondment to Borenius’ New York office in 2019. In my current position as a Senior Associate on the Tax team, I have had the pleasure to take on more responsibility over the assignments I work on and to coach our younger tax lawyers.

Borenius Learning & Borenius Leadership Academy

We understand the concept of learning broadly and seek to challenge the traditional concept of training. The Borenius Learning programme not only aims at training legal skills but also includes other areas, such as self-leadership, career track planning, media skills and ethics workshops. The Borenius Leadership Academy provides a more in-depth look at these topics and is intended for our more senior lawyers.
