Roschier adds strength to its M&A, technology and projects capabilities: appoints a Partner and a Principal Associate

Roschier has appointed Markus Olsson as a Partner and Miikka Konttinen as a Principal Associate. The appointments are effective as of 1 June 2018.

Roschier continues to strengthen its core practices by appointing M&A, private equity and projects & energy practitioner Markus Olsson as a Partner, and technology and projects practitioner Miikka Konttinen as a Principal Associate. Both Markus and Miikka are promoted from Roschier’s own pool of senior talent.

Partner-elect Markus Olsson, a Stockholm-based practitioner, focuses on a broad range of private M&A and private equity transactions, including real estate, VC investments and large development projects. He has also extensive experience of advising on matters relating to the infrastructure and energy sector as well as from negotiating commercial contracts.

Principal Associate-elect Miikka Konttinen is a Helsinki-based practitioner with extensive experience of advising on various technology-related matters such as digital transformation and business process development, outsourcing, IoT and data exploitation. In addition, he specializes in large-scale industrial projects.

“The areas of expertise represented by Markus Olsson and Miikka Konttinen, namely M&A and technology/ICT, continue to be in high demand among our clients,” says Roschier’s Managing Partner Fredrik Rydin.

“In addition to this, both Markus and Miikka have valuable experience of advising on large-scale development projects and transactions in the energy and infrastructure sector, which is a growing focus area for Roschier. We are very happy to see them take this career step and look forward to engaging them in the business development activities of their respective practice areas,” Rydin ends.

‚ÄúPromoting these practitioners from the firm’s own pool of senior talent is particularly rewarding and reflects Roschier’s continuous focus not only on talent development and succession, but also on practice and business development,” Mikko Manner, Partner and Head of Roschier’s Helsinki office concludes.
