M&A lawyer (Legal Counsel/Senior Legal Counsel) @Fondia

Are you a lawyer:

  • with a rich experience in M&A, ideally combined with insight into the world of private equity / venture capital, finance, corporate advisory and/or securities markets? 📈
  • who appreciates working in a dynamic, Nordic environment? 🌍
  • who is looking for a workplace where a balanced life is truly valued? ⚖️

If you responded YES three times, this position might be for you!


👉 We are looking for a self-guided M&A lawyer to join Fondia.


In this role you will become a part of Fondia’s Transactions and Corporate team. You will work closely with Fondia’s customers to assist them in successfully planning, negotiating and executing acquisitions, divestments, financing rounds, mergers, share issues and other transactions. You will also have an opportunity to become a member of one or more legal teams supporting Fondia’s customers on a long-term basis in on-going legal matters. You may read more about Fondia’s LDaaS model here.


Your main responsibilities include:

  • Giving legal advice relating to M&A, private equity / venture capital, finance, corporate advisory and securities markets
  • Drafting and reviewing documents in connection with various types of transactions 
  • Managing client projects
  • Engaging in competence development work
  • Participating in marketing and sales activities


This position is a perfect fit for a lawyer with 5+ years of experience in M&A, but you may also be at an earlier stage of your professional career. Experience in PE/VC transactions, finance, corporate advisory and securities markets is also considered a big plus. You have a strong team player attitude, excellent proficiency in Finnish and English, and enjoy being able to take responsibility over your own tasks and assignments.


What Fondia offers you?  

  • Versatile professional growth 🔝: At Fondia, you will get to be involved in various kinds of assignments, instead of focusing on one niche area of law and transactions. In addition to your legal assignments, you will be able to develop your skills in for example marketing, sales and competence development since they are part of every lawyer’s work at Fondia.
  • Ownership and teamwork combined 🤝: At Fondia, you get to build Fondia’s client network, manage your workload and schedule according to your preference. You will work closely with your colleagues, Fondia’s customers and still have an independent role as a M&A lawyer.
  • Value-driven “tribe” 🧬: Fondia’s values manifest in their everyday work and also drive the employees’ individual development goals. Pride and passion are at the very core of Fondia’s values – Fondians aim to challenge the market and dare to change the legal game. They are proud to be different and are passionate about making law work for their customers’ business.
  • Work-life balance ⚖️: Are you looking for a position where you have a balanced work-life ratio? At Fondia work-life balance is truly emphasised and something that is considered important. Your life situation is taken into account and respected by all team members.
