As head of our Corporate and M&A group in Finland, I have in-depth experience of complex M&A transactions and corporate and commercial work.

Specialising in M&A, I have over 15 years' experience of structuring and negotiating complex transactions, with a focus on private M&A deals and both inbound and outbound cross-border work.

In recent years, a large part of my work has revolved around mergers & acquisitions with a technology sector angle, as well as advisory in the fields of services, automotive and infrastructure. I also have a background in technology licensing and intellectual property, with previous responsibilities including steering group work with Business Finland.

In addition to M&A, I have longstanding experience in strategic contracting, advising clients on matters including joint ventures and co-operation contracts. A special interest area of mine since my studies in London is Civil vs. Common law contracting, and how the small but intricate differences play out in practice.

I enjoy lecturing and writing and am a regular speaker on topics including M&A and commercial contracts, as well as being the author of four books in my areas of interest. Before joining Bird & Bird, I was a partner at another leading law firm.

I am a member of the Finnish Bar Association's Transport and Traffic law Expert Group.
