The Legal 500 - The Clients Guide to Law Firms
I assist our clients in commercial law matters, particularly in the areas of technology, media, venture capital and startups.


As to technology and media sectors, I am experienced in e.g. large-scale ICT system projects, negotiating software and technology licenses in domestic and international context, research and development activities and various commercial collaboration arrangements. A significant part of my work is related to the internationalization of companies or international business operations.


In terms of startups and venture capital I participate in the planning and implementation of new business models, e.g. by investigating IP rights and negotiating IP-related product development, license and transfer agreements. I draft and review agreements related to establishing a company, governance models, venture capital and private equity investments and financing, and I am often involved in M&A transactions.


In addition I assist our clients in resolving conflicts and disputes. I am a conciliator authorized by the Finnish Bar Association.


Along with client service and legal work I contribute to our internal development and quality projects, such as services, processes and innovation development activities.


I work at our Helsinki office as well as in Tampere.


When I am not working or enjoying family time, I take great pleasure in physical exercise. Orienteering and running long distances are close to my heart.
