M&A specialist appointed as Partner at Merilampi

Antti Kahri has been appointed as Partner at Merilampi as of 1 April 2015. Kahri’s areas of specialty are mergers and acquisitions and private equity.

Antti Kahri, 43, (LL.M., MBA, Trained at the Bench) is recognised as one of the leading M&A experts in Finland. He has over twelve years of experience of working in private practice, five of which he spent as a partner, at Roschier Attorneys Ltd. During the past three years, Kahri has been the director of investments and administration at Tutor Invest, a Finnish private equity firm.

Antti Kahri’s experience and background will perfectly complement the expertise of our Transactions practice group and will enhance our cooperation with our clients. Antti has been involved in some of the biggest transactions in Finland and thus has a lot to offer not only to our clients but also to our Transactions team. We have known Antti for years and are certain that his personality and hands on approach to work matches our own. It is a privilege to have him joining our team”, says Jussi Ikonen, the Managing Partner of Merilampi.

It is very useful for a private practice lawyer to go and see the world outside of law firms. The work as a private equity investor is very versatile and dynamic. During these past years I have further developed my industry and business knowledge and also learned to understand what—from the perspective of a client purchasing legal services from a law firm—is truly important and what is not. When an opportunity to join Merilampi arose, I was very excited. Merilampi is a top-notch office and together we can offer legal services of the highest quality. I also highly respect their skilled personnel and open atmosphere, and I am more than glad to join in”, says Antti Kahri.

As of the beginning of April, 15 lawyers will work at Merilampi’s Transactions team. The team regularly assists clients in major corporate and financial transactions and corporate law related matters. In addition to corporate transactions, the team has now for years had a strong position in the Finnish real estate transactions market.
