Professional Biography:

Leaders in Law endorses Timo Talvitie as our exclusively recommended Corporate Law expert in Finland. If you wish to get in touch with Timo please use the contact information provided above.

Seasoned corporate governance and finance professional with exposure in multiple businesses including Corporate Services, Banking, FMCG, Bio-tech and Production industry.

In September 2017 I decided to pursue my long time dream of starting a business of my own and as the first step I decided to return back to law school for a while to finalize my law studies. I got my LL.B. in spring 2018 and my LL.M. at the end of 2018.

In Summer 2018 I started the operations of my own company Fimbul Oy, It is a Corporate Services provider assisting foreign companies of all sizes with all of their administrative needs in Finland. Fimbul Oy has close co-operation with the Finnish blue-chip accounting agency Rantalainen, so in addition to our own staff we have virtually unlimited resources to serve our clients in the fields of accounting, reporting and payroll.

Fimbul Oy is the natural continuation of my previous career, as I was heading the Finnish operations of multi-national corporate services providers Intertrust and CorpNordic for seven years prior returning to law school.

Before joining CorpNordic / Intertrust I was responsible for integrating the S-Bank acquired Citibank Finland consumer business into S-Bank operations and portfolio. This role was continuation to my earlier role as General Manager of Citibank Finland Consumer business. At Citi, in addition to everyday operations of the unit, I was responsible for restructuring the business and contributing to the sale of the business to S-Bank at the end of 2009.

My earlier responsibilities consist of CFO / Financial Manager roles in various companies, common nominator being the sole responsibility over finance function in these companies.

Firm Description:

We provide our clients a single point of contact through which they have access not only to our own services but also to those of our local network. Our services are fully scalable and they are always tailored to your specific needs: should you only need a registered address or a local director, we are happy to provide you just that. Alternatively, we can offer you a turnkey solution from incorporation to a full administrative package or anything inbetween, just as you wish. We want to let you concentrate on your business – let us take care of the administration.

Extensive experience and network at your service

Our founder has more than 20 years of experience of the administration of subsidiaries of multinational corporations in Finland. From 2011 to 2017, he was running the operations of a leading multinational corporate services provider in Finland, and the experiences and insights gained during that time form the foundation for Fimbul’s corporate services, which were launched in July 2018. To ensure best-in-class accounting and payroll services, we have teamed up with Finnish blue-chip accounting firm Rantalainen, which means we have access to their 40 years of experience, +40 offices and latest accounting, payroll and reporting systems. As a result, we are able to offer our clients industry-best practices and virtually unlimited resources in the fields of accounting, reporting and payroll and at the same time provide them with a single point of contact, 12-hour response time 24/7 and personalised services.

We have a vast network of legal and tax advisors, auditors and other local business service providers and are, thus, able to refer our clients to them for services that we do not provide ourselves.
