Waselius & Wist strengthens its finance team with a key lateral hire

Waselius & Wist enhances its financial regulatory capabilities with the appointment of Olli Kiuru as partner. Olli joins Waselius & Wist from another Finnish law firm where he headed their Finance, Insurance & FinTech practice.

The appointment signifies further growth of the firm’s finance practice and enables the firm to offer even greater support across the regulatory spectrum to its clients in the future.

Olli specialises in a wide range of financial regulatory, compliance and corporate governance matters for domestic and international financial institutions, insurance companies and other regulated entities as well as FinTech companies. Olli acts as an outsourced compliance officer for many regulated entities and his work involves tight cooperation with the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority, which makes the firm’s already strong relationship with the regulator even more unique.

Olli is recognised as a leading finance lawyer in Finland and praised for his knowledge of financial regulations and compliance matters. Also Chambers and Partners as well as Legal 500 have recognised Olli for building a stellar reputation in the Finnish financial regulatory and FinTech markets.
