History

Widman & Co Attorneys at Law was founded in 1989 by Kenneth Neovius under the name of Advokatbyrå Neovius. Since its foundation, our office has focused on business law. In the spring of 2001 the office was fully incorporated into the law office Hannes Snellman Attorneys at Law Ltd.

Through joint ownership with Hannes Snellman Attorneys at Law, the office became integrated into the Hannes Snellman network and international sphere of influence, even though the office’s activities continued largely as previously. At the beginning of 2007 Daniel Widman acquired a majority share in the company, upon which the office changed its name to Widman & Hannes Snellman Attorneys at Law Ltd. In connection with Petra Sjöstrand becoming a partner, the office gained its current name on 1 February 2010.
