We find pragmatic and workable solutions for complex problems. Our key legal areas include M&A, Joint Ventures, Corporate and Commercial, Employment, Dispute Resolution and Arbitration. Our clients vary in size from small and medium-sized companies and family enterprises to international public companies.

We would like to welcome you to be part of our team during your traineeship. We are an effective, innovative and highly motivated team, and we always cheer for each other. Our atmosphere is easygoing, since in our office we believe that low hierarchy and a great teamwork helps all of us for better achievements together.

“I started working at Hästö & Co as a trainee in 2015. Many years have passed and I am still working here, now as an attorney-at-law and Senior Associate. Hästö & Co is the perfect combination of a second family and a place to develop professionally every single day. All of our lawyers are encouraged to follow their own professional interests which I think is great. We get a lot of responsibility early on in our careers but support from more senior colleagues is always available. Time has gone by fast!”
