Krogerus’ Consistent Growth Continues

The consistent growth of Krogerus continues with the recruitment of Mårten Knuts to the firm’s partnership. Knuts arrives from Waselius & Wist, where he has built a strong reputation in the fields of capital markets and dispute resolution.

Last year Knuts published his doctoral thesis on market manipulation, the first in its field in the Nordic region. Mr Knuts also has significant international experience gained with Linklaters LLP in London and Kromann Reumert in Copenhagen.

“Knuts would be a strong addition to any law firm in Finland. His in-depth knowledge and experience has earned the plaudits of very demanding clients. I have no doubt that his rise to prominence will continue”, says Managing Partner Juha Pekka Katainen.

Mårten Knuts joins the firm with enthusiasm and adds: “Krogerus has shown exceptional growth throughout the recession. Its focused strategy has made it perfectly positioned for further success. Being part of it and making a contribution is a very exciting prospect.”

Krogerus is one of the leading law firms in Finland. It has recently executed its profitable growth strategy by recruiting key players such as Supreme Court Justice Gustaf Möller (Dispute Resolution), General Counsel Mika Puittinen (Technology) from Cramo Plc, Marjukka Sippola (Capital Markets) from the London office of Norton Rose, Leena Lindberg (Competition and Regulatory) from the Finnish Competition Authority and Antti Lehtimaja (tax) from Hannes Snellman.
