I advise our clients on commercial arbitrations, litigations and other disputes in a variety of sectors, with a special emphasis on disputes relating to construction, industrial projects and energy. In addition, I regularly assist our clients with construction and real estate related contracts and projects.Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked in the legal department of a multinational construction and project development company, and prior to graduating from the University of Helsinki I gained valuable professional experience by working as a legal trainee in a Finnish oil refining company and at two other major law firms in Helsinki.Due to my previous background in the fields of oil and construction industries, I am able to deal with complex and multidimensional issues. Particularly, I have an in-depth understanding of the general conditions for building contracts (YSE 1998) and the general conditions for consulting (KSE 2013). I have also examined invoicing questions in a construction project when I was at the university. I studied law at the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom. In addition to my native Finnish, I speak English and Swedish.
