I am a highly reputed lawyer within corporate mergers and acquisitions, private equity, banking and financial services, and competition and EU law, with over 25 years' experience.

Today I am the head of our Nordic region, and a member of our International Corporate and M&A, Banking & Finance and Competition & EU Law Groups.

I am often the leading partner in demanding cross-border and domestic M&A and finance transactions as well as in merger filings and major cartel and competition proceedings. I have also acted as an arbitrator in commercial disputes including proceedings around M&A transactions.

Before its merger with Bird & Bird, I was the managing partner of Fennica Attorneys in Finland. Prior to this I was an associate and junior partner at another leading Finnish firm.

You will find me in Chambers & Partners, the Legal 500 EMEA, IFLR1000 and the Best Lawyers in Finland. I am fluent in Finnish, English and Swedish and a member of the Finnish Association for Competition Law and the Finnish Association for Arbitration.
