I am a highly reputed lawyer within corporate mergers and acquisitions, private equity, banking and financial services, and competition and EU law.

I am an expert in mergers and acquisitions, private equity, banking and competition, with over 25 years' experience acting on corporate transactional and finance work and providing competition law advice.

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

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.

You can come to me for advice on corporate mergers and acquisitions, private equity, banking and financial services, and competition and EU law.
