Roschier broadens its financial regulatory capability by appointing Jussi Pelkonen Counsel

He joins Roschier's Helsinki office as a Financial Regulatory & Funds Counsel today.
 
The appointment of a Financial Regulatory & Funds Counsel illustrates Roschier's commitment to developing its financial regulatory services at a time when changes in financial regulation are expected to continue.
 
Previously CEO and General Counsel at Northern Horizon Capital AIFM, and General Counsel of the Wealth Management Advisory and Corporate Finance business units at Evli Bank, Jussi Pelkonen has some 20 years of experience in the areas of financial regulatory, investment banking, and capital markets and public M&A transactions. He holds both an LL.M. degree from Helsinki University and an M.Sc. (Econ) from the Helsinki School of Economics (currently Aalto University School of Business). He will have an instrumental role in monitoring upcoming changes in financial regulation and coordinating and developing Roschier's advisory work in this area.
 
"With his extensive understanding of financial regulatory, Jussi will be an important resource supporting our Equity Capital Markets, M&A and Corporate Advisory practices," says Partner Antti Ihamuotila, who heads Roschier's Equity Capital Markets practice. "His in-depth market knowledge will be a great asset to the firm's clients, and we are very happy to welcome him to Roschier."
