Jari Vikiö Joins CapMan to Establish a New Special Situations Fund
Jari Vikiö, Senior Partner at Borenius, will be joining CapMan to establish the CapMan Special Situations Fund. The fund will focus on turnaround situations.
“After nearly three decades of practicing law, advising clients on transactions, and developing the legal service business at Borenius, I have decided to take on the responsibility of a partner in the new fund. This is an exciting position and fund concept, which will enable us to generate value by supporting and guiding companies through turnaround situations. After years of supporting clients on structuring and negotiating deals, it feels natural for me to take on a more holistic role and focus on the business side,” Vikiö states.
Vikiö has held several positions at Borenius and served as our Managing Partner from 2008 to 2016.
“Jari has been one of the key partners in building our strong position in advising the private equity sector. We are very happy to see a successful dealmaker such as Jari take a key business position in the industry at one of our clients with whom we have been working closely for years,” Senior Partner Jyrki Tähtinen states.
“Borenius has undergone significant growth and developed as a firm over the past years, and Jari has played a significant role in initiating this process. We are thankful to Jari for all his efforts and hope to see him become an active Borenius alumnus,” Managing Partner Casper Herler adds.
Jari Vikiö will assist clients on closing certain ongoing matters in order to facilitate a smooth transition.
