I&O Partners is a value-driven company. We believe that our values are core not only to contribute a great atmosphere and work environment but also to effectively serve our clients. Our passion for law leads to outstanding service and professionalism in everything we do.
I&O Partners can look back on a proud heritage, characterised by fascinating and talented individuals. Our history goes back to the former law firm founded by Mr. Risto Ojantakanen in 2015. Before that, Mr Ojantakanen was a partner in two different large and international law firms in Helsinki for over 25 years. Mr Leif Itäinen, also with a background as a partner in a Helsinki-based large international law firm for more than 25 years, joined the law firm next year and together they started to develop the business in a way, which lead to the establishment of I&O Partners in 2021.
During the past years, several new lawyers have joined our team. Our lawyers have extensive experience within their respective areas of expertise and provide high quality, tailormade advice through small teams with partners taking a very active and hands-on part in every assignment. We are always looking for new team players to join us. Read more about our career possibilities here.
