ETL, which has offices in Helsinki, Moscow, St Petersburg and Ukraine, will become part of Hannes Snellman, creating the largest Nordic firm operating in Russia and the CIS.
The bolt-on increases Hannes Snellman by more than 30 lawyers across Russia and the Ukraine, as well as a seven-lawyer Russia desk in the Finnish capital, Helsinki.
Hannes Snellman has existing offices in Helsinki and Beijing.
Hannes Snellman managing partner Johan Aalto said in a statement: “Thanks to our practical northern European approach and our experience we are in an excellent position compared with our Anglo-Saxon competitors in Russia.”
