Our firm combines the traditional practice of law and expertise in special fields. We offer flexibility and aim to avoid unnecessary formalities.

Our attorneys have an in-depth knowledge of their fields of legal expertise and these fields complement each other. At Alfa we have “Old School” senior partners with comprehensive professional experience since late 1970′s, personnel who have conducted doctorate-level research, as well as personnel with top grades from their universities and extensive knowledge of several languages. We constantly update our knowledge by following the latest case law and changes taking place in the legal environment. By choosing us You will always have the diverse expertise of Alfa at Your disposal, regardless of who of our lawyers has the main responsibility for Your assignment.

Even if developing the legal skills of our personnel is for us a high priority, attorney activities are not only limited to mastering substantive legal matters. They also essentially include selecting appropriate and cost-effective measures and keeping the client constantly informed about the progress of the case. We have adopted all these aspects in our activities.

Mr Heikki Taulaniemi, one of the two founding partners of our firm, started as a lawyer for Seppo J. Nieminen Attorneys Ky in 1981. Heikki brings long-term experience and knowledge to Alfa with regard to legal matters relating to real estate and land use, law of succession and family law. Mr Ilkka Miettinen, the other founding partner of our firm, is an accomplished business lawyer, who has practised law since 1991 and prior to that held managerial positions within the finance industry for several years.

Since its establishment in 2001, Alfa has steadily grown to meet the needs and demands of its clientele. As a result of this growth, our substantive legal expertise has become more versatile. A prime example of this is the strong position of our firm obtained in assignments connected to disputes in the real estate business throughout Finland, led by our partner Ms Tiina Koskinen-Tammi, LL.D. Since Mr Peter Rasmussen joined the firm and became a partner, Alfa’s capacity to serve its corporate clients and to handle demanding litigations and arbitrations has significantly increased.

Alfa now employs nine attorneys and two assistants. Our resources make us one of the leading operators in the Pirkanmaa area. At Alfa, the whole personnel are committed to following proper professional conduct and professional ethics in all their activities. Our attorneys are also members of the Finnish Bar Association.
