Aksu joined us in June 2021 and immediately took a key role in one of the most exciting Finnish IPOs of the year when Borenius assisted Modulight Corporation, a Tampere-based biomedical laser company, on its September 2021 EUR 90.9 million IPO to Nasdaq First North Growth Market Finland. Seppo Orsila, CEO of Modulight Corporation describes Aksu as ”one of the driving forces behind our hugely successful IPO.” Orsila also says:

”In addition to solid legal expertise, I particularly appreciated Aksu’s high-spririted attitude and active approach. Everyone in the Modulight laser family loves to work with Aksu.”

Aksu Tuominen enthuses on his nomination:

”I am thrilled to reach this important milestone in my professional career. Borenius has a great Capital Markets team with a wonderful spirit and a can-do attitude. In addition, I am truly happy to contribute to the development of our London and NYC offices, which is super interesting!”

Congratulations, Aksu!
