Juho Keinänen Appointed as Senior Associate to Develop Borenius’ Sanctions & Export Controls Service Area

We are happy to announce that Juho Keinänen has joined Borenius as Senior Associate to develop our Sanctions & Export Controls service area and to strengthen our Financial Regulatory team.

Juho is a well-established legal expert with in-depth knowledge of the regulatory issues and authorisation processes that relate to international sanctions and export controls. He is also well-versed in handling anti-money laundering matters. Juho joined Borenius from the Ministry of Finance where he focused on legislation related to anti-money laundering and combating terrorist financing (AML/CFT). Before that, Juho gained several years of experience at the Ministry for Foreign Affairs where he contributed to the drafting and implementation of EU level trade and financial sanctions and worked on export control regimes.

“Politics is returning to business. The ability to adapt to new operations and having the means to comply with rapidly changing sanctions and trade compliance requirements is becoming a major risk-management issue and an aspect of growing strategic importance to businesses. The current deteriorating geopolitical situation is only one example of the new political complexities faced by companies around the globe. Building on Juho’s in-depth expertise, our international presence and our very capable China desk, we hope to develop a leading Sanctions and Export Control team for Finland,” notes Samuli Simojoki, the Chair of Borenius.

Juho will also assist our clients in navigating this complex environment of financial institutions’ compliance with AML/CFT requirements. New technologies provide novel solutions to fulfil regulatory requirements, but they also pose new challenges to AML/CFT obliged entities.

Welcome to the team, Juho!
