Associate Henrik Uoti

“I began my Borenius career in the spring of 2019. My first position was as an Associate Trainee on the M&A team where I had the chance to work on various different M&A assignments together with a capa-ble team of Borenius experts. After finalising my studies and working elsewhere for a while, I returned to Borenius the following year to write my thesis with the firm’s support. In the autumn of 2020, I was very glad to start to work as an Associate on the same M&A team where I began my career.”

Associate Rilla Ojala

“During my KM traineeship, I had the chance to assist all of the different teams at Borenius, which helped tremendously in finding what I am interested in. I decided to apply for an Associate Trainee position that opened on Borenius’ Dispute Resolution team. I wrote my thesis as a Thesis Trainee with the firm’s support and moved on to the position of Associate on the same team in the autumn 2020.”

Associate Hertta Puro

“I began my Borenius career in the early spring of 2020 as an Associate Trainee on the IP & Technology team. I felt lucky that I was given the chance to work on various different IP and technology related assignments together with a team of inspiring Borenius experts.”

Would you like to know more about working at Borenius? Our current Trainees and Associates have now covered the most frequently asked questions in terms of our trainee programmes. Find the full list of questions and answers on our website.

What makes for a good application?

A good application is carefully drafted, clear and concise. Your application letter should not be more than just one page long, and it should give us a clear indication of what motivates you and whether you are suited for the open position. Please remember to enclose a well-structured CV, any appendices we may require (e.g. a transcript of your studies) and any other additional materials (a video perhaps).

How easy is it to combine my studies with working part time as a Junior Trainee or KM Trainee?

Our Junior Trainees and KM Trainees work, on average, two to three shifts per week. Both our KM and Junior Trainees will organise their shifts together with their teams to ensure that no one needs to skip a class or an exam. In the summer, trainees are welcome to organise their shifts in a way that allows them to take more time off. In a nutshell, our shift system is very flexible in order to make it as easy as possible for our trainees to combine their studies with working part time.

What kind of support does Borenius offer for its Associate Trainees?

Each Associate Trainee undergoes a week of extensive induction training to get a sense of how we do things here at Borenius. The induction week also serves as a great opportunity to get to know your colleagues and the systems we use. In addition, during the induction training, the exiting Associate Trainees get the chance to brief the newcomers on any incomplete assignments and on the culture of each different practice team.

Verojuristin työ: ennakkoluulot vs. todellisuus

Tässä jaksossa pääset heittäytymään mukaan verojuristin työhön.

Kuulemme Katariinan vieraaksi saapuneen Aapo Pessin taustasta, hänen nykyisestä roolistaan Boreniuksella ja pohdimme eroja asianajotoimiston ja Big4:n välillä. Kuulet myös ajatuksia digitalisaation ja teknologisten innovaatioiden vaikutuksista verojuristin roolin näkökulmasta.

Traineesta juristiksi

Miten harjoittelut valmistavat siirtymistä juristiksi? Millaisia mahdollisuuksia organisaatio tarjoaa henkilökohtaiseen kehittymiseen?

Jaksossa Katariina Tuomela on mikrofonin äärellä yhdessä Asianajotoimisto Boreniuksen Associate juristien Iina Väisäsen ja Kukka-Maaria Martikaisen kanssa. Heidän keskustelussaan käydään läpi trainee-ohjelman ja organisaation tarjoaman tuen merkityksestä ammatilliseen kehitykseen, sekä syvennytään työelämän monimuotoisuuteen. Lisäksi Iina ja Kukkis jakavat merkittävimpiä oppeja ja ajatuksia tähänastiselta uraltaan.

Kansainvälinen ura

Kansainvälisyys on rikkaus työelämässä – oli sitten kyse kielitaidosta, monikulttuurisessa työympäristössä työskentelystä tai kansainvälisistä verkostoista. Globaali ura juridiikan parissa houkuttelee monia ja mahdollisuuksia kansainvälistymiselle on tarjolla myös Suomessa. Juristipodin uusimmassa jaksossa perehdytään Boreniuksen tarjoamiin kansainvälisiin uramahdollisuuksiin yhdessä Senior Associate Jonna Yli-Äyhön ja Associate Nelli Nurmisen kanssa.

Korona ja työelämä

Korona määritti vuotta 2020, mikä on näkynyt vahvasti myös työelämässä ja perinteiset työntekotavat kokivatkin suuren muutoksen etätöihin siirtymisen myötä. Isot officet vaihtuivat kotitoimistoihin ja pellavahaarniskat huppareihin. Toimintaympäristön muuttuminen on myös vaatinut uusien toimintatapojen omaksumista. Miten korona käytännössä vaikutti juristien toimintatapoihin ja miltä tulevaisuus näyttää? Aiheeseen perehdytään yhdessä Borenius Asianajotoimiston General Counsel Niko Jakobssonin kanssa.

Juristin arkkityyppi – Millainen juristin pitää olla?

Jaksossa pohditaan juristin ominaisuuksia, monimuotoisuutta ja kulttuurin johtamista asianajomaailmassa. Vieraana Borenius Asianajotoimiston Managing Partner Casper Herler.
