We are happy to announce that we are continuing our rotation programme in London. Offering our lawyers the chance to experience working abroad and to meet their peer-level associates in law firms based in London is a good way to not only create and further deepen our global connections but also to solidify our internationally spirited brand.
It’s all about connections
In addition to typical senior-level lawyer work, such as drafting agreements and attending conference calls, an average working day at the London office involves connecting with international colleagues and clients e.g. through business lunches, industry events, and local seminars. The rotation programme participants also actively contribute to the various events and seminars we regularly host at our own representative office.
Our Senior Associates Christel Nokkala, Ben Fallström and Emma Laaksonen are excited to get the chance to touch base with both old and new Nordic colleagues in London this year. According to them, the genuinely international business and legal communities in London provide great opportunities to create connections and develop professional skills. In addition, the firm is always there to support them as they are taking their first steps in building an international network of colleagues and clients.
Working on cross-border matters is in our DNA, and our representative office in London is ideally positioned to connect domestic and global businesses with legal services and business networks in the major European financial centre. During their stay in London, our programme participants are tasked e.g. with meeting with international colleagues and clients and giving them presentations on recent market developments in Finland. This deepens our programme participants’ understanding of both Finnish and global markets while simultaneously training their skills.
As the time difference between Finland and London is relatively small, our programme participants are ideally positioned to work on both domestic and international assignments, which further contributes to their skill and career development. All London rotation programme participants have rated it highly, stating that opting to go to London has been one of the best career decisions they have made so far.
