I am head of ICT and outsourcing practice. My other areas of expertise include IP, Privacy and Media.

 

I have a proven track record in advising clients and negotiating complex commercial transactions involving technology and intellectual property rights. I have supported strategic and global IT projects within various industries and jurisdictions, including large-scale IT infrastructure and application development and maintenance outsourcing, business process outsourcing, cloud computing, IT system deliveries as well as data security and privacy related matters. I advise clients on all phases of their transactions, from strategy development and bid preparation through final contract negotiations and implementation.

 

Prior to joining Lexia, I worked as Legal Director heading the global legal support for Nokia Information Capability Management and Indirect Sourcing functions. During my  eight years at Nokia I also gained a keen understanding of business management of global IT and sourcing operations through membership in the leadership teams of the functions under his support. Before joining Nokia, I worked for several years within the Technology & IP group of law firm Hannes Snellman.
