Avance strengthens key competencies by welcoming Selinda Näse to the firm

Avance takes the next step in further strengthening its finance and debt capital markets practice as Selinda Näse joins the firm as partner.

Selinda is recognized as a leading banking and finance expert in the Nordic market. She has focused her practice on structured finance and complex cross-border syndicated lending transactions. In addition to her career as a practicing attorney in Finland, Sweden and London, Selinda has gained valuable in-house insight having served in the legal team of a leading Nordic bank.

“This is an important step in the expansion of a key service area and we are very happy to welcome Selinda to the firm. Selinda brings a wealth of experience and another strong profile into our transactional team. Selinda represents the top of the new generation of finance lawyers that have been brought up with international finance products and that routinely advise on cross-border transactions,” said Managing Partner Carl-Henrik Wallin.

Ulf-Henrik Kull, Senior Partner, added: “Our client-oriented service approach, as well as our focus on industry-specific market and regulatory drivers, has received a fantastic response from clients. The continued success of a law firm is not possible without engaging a young and dynamic team. It is against this broader approach that we are so excited that Selinda is joining us”.

“I am impressed with the high professional standards and entrepreneurial drive of the Avance team and view them as the strongest and most dynamic transactional team in the country. I look forward to joining this group of well-known professionals. This is a great platform for me to continue my career and will allow me to deliver services of the highest quality to clients,” says Selinda.

Ms. Näse holds a law degree from the University of Helsinki and is presently finalizing her LL.M. in international business law at Universidade Católica Portuguesa in Lisbon.
