WE ARE LOOKING FOR VALUE-CONSCIOUS M&A LAWYERS TO STRENGTHEN OUR CORPORATE TEAM
Run while everyone else walks. At DLA Piper we don’t follow trends. We start them.
It’s not about the length of your work experience or the titles. It’s about you and your passion towards providing of top-class legal services. You might be a newly graduated lawyer with some M&A experience, have two years of experience or then you might have more. We are hiring both juniors and seniors and will tailor your tasks by expertise.
As a member of our Corporate Team, you will assist our Finnish and international clients in a changing business environment, supporting them in their growth and business development efforts both in Finland and abroad.
Our people are equipped with a can-do attitude and a proactive approach. They have the ability to work on their own initiative as well as be part of the team. We share a genuine passion towards the first-rate work we do. This is what we expect from you too.
You should have solid basic understanding and some experience of M&A and company law. To perform well, you also should have relevant work experience in the field of private equity and/or venture capital. For the senior positions we would highly appreciate that you would be familiar with drafting and supporting in the negotiations of acquisition and shareholder agreements and similar transaction documents. It’s always a plus if you have experience in related project management and working in team.
Though our office language is Finnish, we mostly work in English. Therefore, we expect you to be fluent both in Finnish and in English.
