Associate Tuomas Tuominen
Associate Trainee in 2018
Thesis Trainee in 2019 

“I have received great advice and support from my tutor and other lawyers during my writing process. In addition, access to the office’s extensive library and databases has been a real lifesaver as all the information I could ever need is always at my fingertips.”

Associate Suvi Hyvärinen
Associate Trainee in 2017
Thesis Trainee in 2018

“Associate Trainees get an excellent opportunity to contribute to real client work as equal members of the team. During my traineeship, I was given responsibilities and the chance to experience what an M&A lawyer does in practice. Transitioning to an associate position after my traineeship ended felt very natural.”

Associate Olli Isoaho
2015 Junior Trainee
2017 Insolvency Trainee
2019 Associate Trainee

Working during your studies is one of the best ways to learn how to apply your academic knowledge in actual business life.

Juristin arkkityyppi – Millainen juristin pitää olla?

Jaksossa pohditaan juristin ominaisuuksia, monimuotoisuutta ja kulttuurin johtamista asianajomaailmassa. Vieraana Borenius Asianajotoimiston Managing Partner Casper Herler.

Korona ja työelämä

Korona määritti vuotta 2020, mikä on näkynyt vahvasti myös työelämässä ja perinteiset työntekotavat kokivatkin suuren muutoksen etätöihin siirtymisen myötä. Isot officet vaihtuivat kotitoimistoihin ja pellavahaarniskat huppareihin. Toimintaympäristön muuttuminen on myös vaatinut uusien toimintatapojen omaksumista. Miten korona käytännössä vaikutti juristien toimintatapoihin ja miltä tulevaisuus näyttää? Aiheeseen perehdytään yhdessä Borenius Asianajotoimiston General Counsel Niko Jakobssonin kanssa.
