Niko Johansson becomes DKCO’s newest partner

Niko Johansson has joined DKCO as a partner as of 1.4.2021. He comes from one of Finland’s largest law firms and has significant expertise and experience in financial matters, particularly in the fields of capital market transactions (debt and share issuances), syndicated loans, M&A, real estate financing and restructuring. During the past couple of years, Niko has handled debt and capital market transactions in which his clients have raised an aggregate amount exceeding 3 billion euros in new capital.

Together with Gunnar Westerlund, a well renowned banking and finance expert, Niko will lead and develop DKCO’s finance and restructuring practice in Helsinki.

“DKCO is an interesting law firm and a fresh player on the market, and I look forward to develop a business model in which we dare challenge the old way of doing things without compromising on quality” says Niko, who also shares that he has followed the development of DKCO since he interned at the firm in 2010.

“Our goal is to be the first choice when it comes to complicated financial arrangements and to offer flexible and high-quality services aided by our knowledge base and comprehensive network” Niko finishes.

The recruitment of Niko is a part of DKCO’s long term strategy of establishing itself as a central piece in the premium segment of the Finnish commercial law market.
