Interlaw’s Finnish Firm Strengthens Finance Team with New Partner Hire
Interlaw’s partner firm in Finland, Waselius & Wist, has enhanced its financial regulatory capabilities with the appointment of Olli Kiuru as partner.
The appointment underlines the further growth of the firm’s finance practice and means it can offer even greater support to clients across the regulatory spectrum in the future.
Olli specialises in a wide range of financial regulatory, compliance and corporate governance matters for domestic and international financial institutions, insurance companies and other regulated entities as well as FinTech companies.
He acts as an outsourced compliance officer for many regulated entities and his work involves tight cooperation with the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority, which makes the firm’s already strong relationship with the regulator even more unique.
Olli is recognised as a leading finance lawyer in Finland and praised for his knowledge of financial regulations and compliance matters. Indeed, both Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 listings have recognised Olli for building a stellar reputation in the Finnish financial regulatory and FinTech markets.
Olli’s depth and versatility of expertise in financial products and regulatory issues as well as his considerable involvement in the FinTech space will complement the firm’s strengths in these areas and add further depth and breadth to the firm’s capabilities.
