Avance strengthens its dispute resolution practice as Salla Suominen joins the partnership on 11 January. Salla has long-standing experience in litigating commercial, corporate and director liability disputes. Salla is also a highly regarded insolvency practitioner, having advised sponsors, creditors and other corporate clients in bankruptcy, complex corporate restructuring and other distress situations. As her competence covers reorganization of financing structures and arrangements, she will be a strong support to Avance’s finance practice.
“Our dispute resolution team is very excited about Salla joining the practice. Salla is a perfect match for our team and we welcome her warmly”, said Partner Ulla Vuokila.
“A state-of-the-art dispute resolution practice is extremely important for Avance. Salla significantly strengthens our dispute resolution capacity and we are excited to welcome her. She is known for her pragmatic, client-orientated approach and will fit in very well”, said Managing Partner Carl-Henrik Wallin.
Ulf-Henrik Kull, Senior Partner, added: “Salla’s expertize from corporate restructuring and distressed finance matters will complement not only our dispute resolution practice but will add further depth to our already leading M&A and finance practice. We are enthusiastic about the prospects of offering Salla’s expertize to our clients.”
