Waselius & Wist has been recognized as one of less than 45 international law firms to appear as the only Finnish law firm in the first edition of IFLR1000 Firms to Watch. The guide is a spin-off supplement produced by the IFLR1000 designed to highlight firms which have recently been developing in interesting ways.
From a pool of thousands of firms researched by the IFLR1000 team in 2017, less than 45 were selected to appear in Firms to Watch. Those firms which feature in the supplement were chosen for successfully breaking into new markets or generally expanding astutely in footprint or headcount (or a combination of both), for gaining in market share of interesting transactional work, and for adopting new and innovative client services and internal programmes.
Waselius & Wist was selected because of its increasing activity on significant deals and its remarkable international clientele. “Despite challenges in the Finnish market, Waselius & Wist has not only maintained its level of activity but increased it. The firm has been able to strengthen both its banking and finance and M&A practices in recent years and in 2017 it saw a growth rate of 15%, far outstripping the performance of the national market”.
