Private attorney

Private attorney services are provided by Advocates, other law firms and other companies offering legal services.

An Advocate is a member of the Finnish Bar Association, who is subject to the supervision of both the Bar Association and the Chancellor of Justice of the Government. Advocates are under the obligation to observe proper advocacy conduct. The professional designation of Advocate is restricted only to persons entered on the Roll of Advocates of the Bar Association.

A licensed attorney is a lawyer who has been granted permit by the Licensed Attorneys Board to act as an attorney. The activities of the licensed attorneys are monitored in a similar manner as the activities of advocates.
