Amazing teamspirit.

TOP5 true things our people value @D&I

Culture is our defining differentiator, the one thing that truly sets us apart from any other law firm.

Our culture shines through in everything we do. It is the foundation for how we serve our clients and develop as a team and as individuals. Our culture is a live mixture of being extremely goal-oriented and completely humane at the same time.

We don’t believe in manuals or hierachies.¬†Our¬†systems and processes, traditions and rituals, even the way¬†we communicate with each other, reflect¬†our value-based Cultural Cornerstones.

Collaborating to build a better tomorrow is deeply embedded in our cultural dna. We want to deliver value to the society through our active Pro Bono work. We believe it is our privilege to give back.

We create¬†our culture¬†together.¬†You’re welcome to explore¬†it¬†yourself.

Start with Why

We have a¬†clear purpose of delivering value to the society through our experience and expertise.¬†We want to be the best law firm partner for demanding corporate clients and¬†the best place to work for talented¬†professionals. Today we are proud¬†to be¬†ranked in the TOP 5 of the best workplaces in Finland in the 2018 Great Place to Work¬ģ Finland survey.

Trust and¬†respect are¬†vital¬†in¬†building a healthy and happy workplace.¬†We invest in fostering deep connections and creating shared experiences through¬†making weekend trips to places such as Chamonix, Lago di Como and Kitzb√ľhel with¬†the whole team.

Big¬†actions and small¬†habits¬†that¬†maintain¬†our laid-back office culture¬†and¬†humane social connections, such as our¬†quite unusual firmwide WhatsApp-group, fuel idea generation and make us feel good about¬†coming to the office every morning. We believe¬†the way our people feel at work is directly linked in¬†the¬†way in which we engage with our clients to deliver service that is above and beyond what’s called for.

Thinking Ahead As a Powerhouse

We have been a leading Finnish law firm for quite some time for a good reason.

Since 1899 we have been engineering landmark transactions, solving major disputes and been there for our clients in times of significant changes, even revolutions. With our sterling reputation for high-end expertise and experience from the defining deals of the decades we have paved the way for an impressive list of clients.

Not everyone can rise to the challenges of the 21st century. With our client-centric Powerhouse method, we can. As a Powerhouse we take a global approach to a case and assemble a mix of specialists with experience from across practice groups and industries to form teams capable of delivering exceptional added value.

Much more than a philosophy to us, Powerhouse is our operative model for thinking ahead and supporting our clients’ objectives and growth. It is the practical embodiment of our Cultural Cornerstones.

Meet the Cornerstones


Winning teams are made of passion for reaching a common goal. We are passionate about what we do and passionate about letting it show.

For us, passion is ambition for excellence defined. It goes hand in hand with extraordinary client experiences. Insight and innovation, delivered with passion.


Respect is¬†our key to attuning to our clients and colleagues¬†– and to better collaboration.¬†When we give feedback or challenge a colleague’s view, we do it¬†in the same boat, striving to¬†reach the best possible end-result as a team. We have a shared commitment to help each other grow.

We¬†expect respect¬†in every interaction, both internally and externally.¬†It’s all about being present, showing appreciation through listening and being kind even when things don’t¬†go as planned.

Respect, we believe,¬†is¬†the key to attune to our clients and their wants and needs.¬†It’s not only our insight but also our clients’ insight that¬†matters.

Team Before Individual

Teamwork is¬†only common sense.¬†For us the real thing is this:¬†there’s no “I” in team. We work collaboratively together.

It’s very simple, really. We value teamplaying efforts, such as generous¬†sharing of knowledge,¬†more than individual scores. However,¬†much like¬†the most¬†beautiful¬†star constellations in the Northern sky,¬†legendary winning teams are rarely¬†made without star individuals.

We have enormous respect for our professionals as individuals with their distinctive skills and strengths. But while an individual may be hugely important for a battle, it does take a team to win a complex dispute.

Team Before Individual is embodied in our Powerhouse method. We blend talents for greater insight. Our organisational structure, processes and our compensation model foster collaboration and seek to eliminate any signs of internal competition. We compete against each other only in sports and poker.

When we put the team first, everything else falls into place.

Continuous Development

No-one gets to the top by resting on their heels.

Being agile and attuned to what is happening in the market is an imperative in building a modern law firm. While lawyers become increasingly paired with technology, human ability for creativity and strategic insight will be of greater value than ever before.

Continuous development of our uniquely human skills requires hard work. We see our Powerhouse method as one of our signature ways to foster the development of better lawyers and life-long learning.

Sending our people regularly to leadership trainings at Harvard fosters the development of better leadership. Sending our people regularly to Paphos seminars with philosopher Esa Saarinen fosters the development of better thinking leading to better life.

Being the best place to develop, both professionally and as an individual, is our promise that we take very seriously. We believe our people, our clients and the society deserve no less.

Common Goal

Our common goal is to make our clients succeed and thrive in the long-term.
