Hannes Snellman Is Expanding Further Within Private M&A

17 June 2019

Within just three months of the latest senior recruitment, Hannes Snellman is now further strengthening its Private M&A team with Johanna Wärnberg as a specialist partner. Earlier this spring, the partner Mikael Klang joined, and the recruitment of Johanna Wärnberg is a part of Hannes Snellman's further investment in its leading role within Nordic M&A.

Johanna has extensive experience of both Nordic and international acquisitions and has, thanks to her background, a natural advantage in cross-border transactions from both a Swedish and a Finnish perspective. During her career in Stockholm and Helsinki, she has assisted private equity funds and industrial clients with, among other things, acquisitions, sales, restructurings, carve-outs, and joint ventures.

Johanna joins Hannes Snellman from Bird & Bird, where she worked with strengthening the focus on private equity clients. In addition, she previously worked at Roschier for eight years, in both Helsinki and Stockholm.

- I very much look forward to becoming a part of Hannes Snellman's professional M&A cross-border team, which is based on a strong Nordic brand, broad expertise, and interesting and complex assignments. I am confident that together with the team at Hannes Snellman, we will be able to assist our clients in a fantastic way, which is fundamental for me because I am driven by assisting clients with my experience and knowledge to ensure that we deliver a "first class client experience". Hannes Snellman's values ​​also correspond to mine, which is a very important factor for me, and getting to be a part of a Swedish-Finnish firm is obviously very close to my heart, says Johanna Wärnberg.

- Johanna is hugely appreciated by clients for her solution-oriented and structured way of working and her ability to always put clients first. Given her extensive experience in running complex M&A transactions, which is what many of our clients seek, she will become a great asset to our clients. We are very happy and proud to welcome Johanna to our firm, says Claes Kjellberg, Head of M&A and Private Equity in Stockholm.

Johanna joined Hannes Snellman on 10 June.
