Senior Associate Janni Hiltunen has been appointed as Counsel and Co-head of the Financial Institutions and Regulation practice (“FIR”), effective 1 February 2021. Janni continues to divide her time between our FIR and Capital Markets practices.
Throughout her decade-long career, Janni has accumulated a wealth of experience in the regulated financial markets. She began her career at OP Corporate Bank’s compliance, then moved onto the Ministry of Finance focusing on the implementation of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (AIFMD) and the introduction of the EU bank and investment firm resolution regime into Finnish legislation.
After a stint at another Helsinki law firm, she joined Borenius in August 2015 and has thereafter focused on financial regulatory and capital markets matters. Since joining Borenius, Janni has also been seconded to Goldman Sachs’ investment banking legal department in London and to the Capital Markets Financing team of OP Corporate Bank plc.
Partner Juha Koponen will continue as co-head of the FIR practice alongside Janni Hiltunen. Senior Associate Eeva Terho and Associate Joona Riski continue as the key members of the FIR team, heavily involved in the day-to-day FIR work.
