I am always looking for opportunities to challenge myself, so domestic and cross-border transactions are a natural fit for me due to their challenging and fast-paced nature. In addition, I get to use my corporate law related knowledge in connection with the transactions. My objective is always to exceed our clients' expectations, whether the matter in hand concerns complex restructuring operations or a simple registration with the registration authorities. I have particular experience in financing rounds and M&A transactions where I have sat on each side of the table, as I have represented investors, target companies, vendors as well as buyers. Furthermore, I have experience in various merger and demerger proceedings, share-based incentive schemes as well as corporate governance related issues. I have also acted as a chairman and/or secretary in general meetings on multiple occasions.Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked as a legal counsel in a major international law firm in Helsinki.
