HPP is delighted that real estate partner Leif Laitinen has been shortlisted for the 2020 Euromoney Legal Media Group Europe Rising Stars Awards in the practice area awards for real estate, the only Finnish real estate lawyer to make the shortlist of four real estate lawyers.
The Awards recognize some of the most promising emerging talents internationally in specialist practice areas. The individuals shortlisted have been widely praised by peers and clients in their markets, as well as played key roles on influential projects and transactions during 2020. They are among the next generation of partners at law firms.
This recognition rewards the hard work of Leif and his real estate team colleagues, for whom 2020 has been a record year in terms of numbers of real transactions advised on as well as aggregate deal value of the deals the HPP real estate team has assisted either buyer or seller on. It also recognizes the excellent international capability Leif and his team has in assisting foreign investors and acquirers on large, complex and high value Finnish real estate transactions.
