I am an associate in our Privacy and Data Protection and Technology & Commercial groups, where I work with our local and international clients advising them on data protection, commercial contracts and matters of IT law.

I joined Bird & Bird in 2018 after graduating from the University of Helsinki, having specialised in data protection and communications law in my studies. During 2019 I assisted the Finnish Ministry for Foreign Affairs in the Finnish EU Presidency effort, acting for Finland and the EU Member States in the World Intellectual Property Organisation in Geneva, Switzerland.

During my law studies I worked for an international technology company in Finland and Germany as well as for two other Finnish tech law firms. Before pursuing a law career I was a journalist employed by many of the largest Finnish media organisations.

From my diverse professional background I have gained a valuable perspective on legal issues relevant to our clients on national, EU and UN levels. I am willing and able to dig deep to solve the most complex data protection and technology law questions our clients might have.

I am a member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals (IAPP), holding CIPP/E certification.
