Avance is a unique business law firm of some 50 professionals, all geared to make a difference. We share an enthusiasm for having the most satisfied clients and the most dedicated team – without forgetting the fun.

We handle some of the most demanding transactions and large projects involving our market, with a focus on matters that call for the skills and sophistication of our team. As a reflection of the increasingly global nature of our clients’ business environment, the vast majority of our work is conducted on a cross-border basis or has otherwise an international angle.

Our success is based on our people. In addition to highest standards of legal services, we bring the same practical approach and personal commitment to each of our engagements. Our culture is built on team work, transparency and learning from each other in an environment that constantly supports professional and personal development. As a practical example, we have chosen an open office landscape in order to best facilitate this culture.

We are always eager to welcome new like-minded, talented and enthusiastic colleagues to complement our team.

What kind of experience do you expect from trainee candidates?

Prior work experience is a plus but not an absolute requirement. International experience – through studies, work or volunteering – is also an advantage.

Required or favored languages?

We expect all of our applicants to have good language skills, both oral and written. Excellent English and Finnish skills are essential, and Swedish skills are a plus.

What kind of value do you put on grades?

Good grades often reflect ambition, diligence and eagerness to learn which are all qualities we look for in our team members. Hence, we do value good grades in our recruitment process but we always consider each application and applicant as a whole.

What else do you value in an employee?

We look for genuine team players equipped with an entrepreneurial spirit, a can-do attitude and a good work ethic. Our ideal candidate would be a solution-oriented and ambitious person who enjoys working in a fast-paced environment with colleagues who are leaders in their respective fields.


Instead of hiring resources, we seek for colleagues who share our values, enjoy our culture and truly want to be part of our team. We therefore do not have formal trainee programs or application periods. Instead, we accept applications throughout the year and process each application individually. The timing and length of each traineeship is agreed upon with the trainee candidate.

We recruit around 8-12 students on an annual basis and arrange 2-3 interview rounds in each recruitment process.



Students are employed for a fixed-term.

Our benefits include luncheon as well as sport and cultural vouchers.

Our compensation level follows the recommendation by The Association of Finnish Lawyers.
