I work as an associate in our Helsinki-based Employment Group, where my multicultural background gives me a deep understanding of our international clients' needs and concerns.

Advising on all sorts of employment matters, I work with our clients on employment and executive agreements; changing terms of employment; negotiation and termination of employment relationships; collective agreements; and consultation related to the posting of workers.

Having worked and studied in Finland, Germany, Denmark and Spain, I relish the chance to help our clients understand market and country-specific differences in cultures and legal frameworks. Over the years, I have received praise for my ability to explain complex legal issues in clear and plain language.

Before joining Bird & Bird in 2018, I was Head of Legal at the German-Finnish Chamber of Commerce in Helsinki for almost six years. In addition to my vast practical knowledge as an in-house legal counsel, I have gained significant experience in advising foreign companies on employment law and other legal issues here in the Finnish market.

I am bilingual in Finnish and German and fluent in English and Spanish.
