Legal expert teams

Legal expert teams

As a rule, the Finnish Bar Association’s judicial policy statements are drawn up by our 18 teams of legal experts. The members of the teams are also frequently heard by Parliament on legislative amendment projects. The teams include roughly 120 attorneys-at-law who represent the top of their fields.

 

You can find the contact details of our experts in our Find an Attorney search service.
