Avance promotes two new partners from its own ranks

Avance is pleased to announce the promotion of Rasmus Sundström and Sampsa Suominen to the partnership.

Rasmus has extensive experience in public and private M&A transactions, capital markets transactions as well as corporate and securities law advisory work. In addition, he regularly advises clients in general corporate, commercial and contractual matters. Having worked on some of the most complex and high-profile transactions on the Finnish market in recent years, Rasmus has developed close relationships with several of the firm’s key clients who highlight his responsiveness and commercial approach.

Sampsa has broad expertise covering a wide range of transactional work, including M&A, private equity transactions and investments, as well as shareholder, contractual and corporate matters. He regularly represents fund and industrial clients in high-end deals, private equity buyouts, investments and projects, and he is highly regarded among the firm’s long-standing clients for his solution-oriented project handling skills. Alongside general transactional work, Sampsa advises clients in relation to large-scale energy projects and transactions, including wind energy.
