Hammarström Puhakka Partners has invited Nora Gahmberg to join the partnership effective from 1 January 2012.
Gahmberg joins from her role as in-house counsel at the Norwegian company Teekay Petrojarl Productions AS, a subsidiary to Canadian Teekay Corporation, the global leader in oil and gas shipping, and offshore oil production, storage and transport. Teekay Petrojarl Productions AS is the largest operator of floating, production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels in the North Sea, giving her significant oil and gas industry experience. During her time at Teekay she advised on a range of corporate and commercial matters relating to the oil and gas industry and will complement HPP’s market-leading maritime, transport, energy and natural resources teams.
”HPP is rightly regarded as the leading firm in Finland in transport and energy and with my background in those areas it was a natural choice for me to develop a client base throughout the key jurisdictions in those industries. I look forward to continuing to work with those Nordic and European law firms I got to know during my time in-house and to continuing to grow HPP’s excellent reputation in these sectors”, Gahmberg commented.
HPP’s Managing Director Markus Einiö explained that the hire reflects the increasing focus of the firm on leveraging its core sector strengths internationally: “Nora brings a wealth of specific sector experience gained in an international environment and her international network and relationships will be invaluable as HPP continues to develop its international offering for clients, law firm partners and the firm’s lawyers”.
