Krogerus appoints Marcus Möller and Heikki Vesa as heads of practice groups

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed Partner Marcus Möller as head of the Mergers & Acquisitions practice group, and Partner Heikki Vesa as head of the Restructuring & Insolvency practice group, effective from 1 April 2023.

The appointments strengthen two of our highly ranked practice groups and reflect our commitment to constant improvement by developing our offering.

Our Mergers & Acquisitions practice group will continue to expand towards more complex and cross-border transactions

"Krogerus continues to stand out as the most active M&A practice in the country, as evidenced by our four-year streak at the top of the Mergermarket league table for Finland. Although we are extremely proud of this achievement, we acknowledge that it is made possible only by the trust placed in us by our clients, who will continue to be at the core of our focus. My ambition is to maintain equally high volumes of client work while steering our practice group towards more high-value transactions. Regardless of macroeconomic uncertainty, we expect cross-border transactional work to keep us busy also going forward and the complexity of transactions to increase," says Marcus, Partner and new head of the Mergers & Acquisitions practice group.

Marcus has represented clients in Finnish and cross-border transactional assignments for the past 20 years. His clients include private equity and real estate investors, financial institutions and leading Nordic and international corporations. Marcus' areas of specialisation include advising clients on their acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, as well as on all types of private equity assignments.

Client experience forms the core of our Restructuring & Insolvency practice group's operation

"I am very delighted for this opportunity to head our Restructuring & Insolvency practice group. As the leading Finnish insolvency practice, our team has worked hard to provide our domestic and international clients with the best possible service in corporate restructuring proceedings, bankruptcies, voluntary insolvency-related arrangements as well as risk assessments. We have yet again been recognised as Band 1 in Chambers Europe 2023, which is a clear testament to our hard work. In addition to maintaining our strong focus on the client experience, we will continue cooperating closely with Krogerus' other practice groups to integrate our expertise with the other services Krogerus offers," states Heikki, Partner and new head of the Restructuring & Insolvency practice group. "Given the present economic realities the future looks interesting to say the least. We look forward to continuing working with our clients and assisting them with any and all insolvency-related matters," Heikki continues.

Heikki specialises in insolvency law, company law and dispute resolution. Over the past 16 years Heikki has advised our clients in all insolvency-related matters. He has especially broad experience in bankruptcy and corporate restructuring proceedings as well as litigation. Heikki regularly acts as an administrator in both bankruptcy and restructuring proceedings and provides support to different stakeholders in all insolvency-related situations.
