Get to Know Us | Antti Antikainen, Senior Associate, Real Estate, Helsinki

When did you start working at Hannes Snellman?
I started as an associate in the Real Estate team in November 2014.

What is included in a “normal” working day?
One of the great things about working at Hannes Snellman is that there is no such thing as a “normal” working day. From my perspective, this is due to the fact that most of my work is related to transactions, which leads to variation both in the number of tasks at hand and also in the pace of work. Quite often the “normal” working day includes drafting of transactional documents, closing or signing preparations, and due diligence work.

Can you describe your working group?
The Real Estate team could be described as a pragmatic, client-oriented, and business-minded group. The culture is supportive and open, and it is possible to be fully involved in transactions from the early steps to the post-closing activities. We also have a lot of collaboration with our colleagues in Finance, M&A, and Tax.

What do you like about your job?
I like the fact that there are always new challenges and opportunities to learn something new. It is also motivating to be in direct contact with the client and to learn about their perspectives and to see the difference our work makes. Generally speaking, I think that the combination of responsibility and freedom in day-to-day work is great!

Can you describe the Hannes Snellman culture?
The Hannes Snellman culture is highly professional and ambitious, but at the same time relaxed, down to earth, and friendly. Collegiality is an important part of the everyday Hannes Snellman culture, and it is always easy to approach people.
