I am a commercially-minded corporate and M&A partner in our Helsinki office. As the co-head of our Corporate and M&A group in Finland, I have extensive experience advising on a wide range of corporate, M&A and real estate transactions.

Specialising in mergers & acquisitions, corporate and securities law work and real estate transactions, my practice consists of advising both domestic and international clients in their transactional and corporate needs. I regularly advise clients with public tender offers, private equity transactions, complex cross-border transactions, creation of incentive plans for the management and employees, and complex internal corporate restructurings, among others.

I am also one of the leading experts in warranty and indemnity insurances. I advise both the underwriters as the subscribers on all stages of the process from the underwriting up to the end of the claims process. This provides Bird & Bird with a unique access to data from wide range of transactions.

Our clients know me for my responsiveness, on-point advice, no-nonsense approach and commercial mindset. I take client satisfaction seriously and am constantly utilising new technologies and practices to make the transaction process more user-friendly to our clients.

My post-graduate studies on international business law at King's College have greatly benefited our clients in their cross-border transactions as I am familiar with the different techniques to address common legal problems in the US, UK and Europe.

Before joining Bird & Bird in 2010, I worked for several years at another leading Nordic law firm in Finland. I am a member of the Finnish Bar Association, the Finnish Corporate Law Association and the Finnish Insurance Lawyers' Association.
