We handle some of the most demanding transactions and large projects involving our market, with a focus on matters that call for the skills and sophistication of the team. Our high partner-associate ratio (1:2) reflects our core strategy of providing a very senior-oriented service that ensures concrete value-add to clients and distinguishes us from our key competition.
We combine high-end advisory work with a unique breadth of international experience, focusing on regulated industries that are relevant for Finland, such as Energy and Infrastructure, Financial Services, Healthcare, Media and Telecommunications, and Real Estate and Construction.
Evidencing the success of our strategy, we can showcase a broad selection of transactional advisory in key industrial arrangements in Finland. The work has in most cases also included advice on complex regulatory, competition law and financing issues. Please visit www.avanceattorneys.com/references/deals for further details.

At PwC, our purpose is to build trust in society and solve important problems. It is this focus which informs the services we provide and the decisions we make.
Demonstrating genuine leadership is more important to us than size or short term revenue growth. To achieve our aim to be recognised as the ‘the leading professional services firm’ we must be innovative, responsible and attract outstanding people.
Our strategy is therefore built around five priorities:
be technology enabled;
deliver exceptional value to our clients;
empower our people;
lead by example;
invest in sustainable growth.
Attracting the right talent continues to be paramount and as a progressive employer we will continue to develop a diverse and agile workforce.
