Is it correct to say "apres il a fini, nous avons..."
or should it be
"apres il finissait, nous avons..."
Thanks

No, I think it is more appropriate to say "apres qu'il a fini, nous avons..."
or it could be
" apres avoir fini, nouus avons..."

Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Shym is correct, but don't forget the accents and the correct spelling! après avoir fini, nous avons....

Mme

P.S. If you use the conjunction "après que..." it will take the Indicative and not the Subjunctive. Be aware of the part of speech as "après" can be an adverb, or a preposition as well.
