Iikka has experience in throughput of broad software projects, in negotiating domestic and international software and technology licenses and handling the related dispute processes, in the procurement of IT systems, in research and product development activities, and in advising capital investors.

As one of Finland’s fastest growing legal firms, Lexia encourages creative thinking and the development of service models and digital solutions that promote clients’ business operations. In fact, Iikka praises the attitude and readiness of Lexia employees to be in the vanguard in developing law practices together with clients and personnel.

I feel I have come to precisely the right place, because my experience will enable me to advance the business of Lexia and of its clients to even a steeper rise,” Iikka says.
Solutions that increase business value are not pursued only for clients; Iikka will also participate in Lexia’s internal development.

Iikka and I have a shared view of the future, so it was easy to find common ground. It is an honor to welcome Iikka to Lexia to help us build a law firm of the future,” says Lexia’s Managing Director Samuli Koskela.
