Our IP Group in Helsinki handles both contentious and non-contentious IP matters. In particular, I have specialised in copyright, trademark and marketing law issues. Since joining Bird & Bird in 2013, I have also gained experience in drafting technology and other IP related agreements and assisting in litigation. I have also conducted a number of IP due diligences and assisted in regulatory matters as well as giving lectures and training for clients and IP professionals.I have experience advising clients across various sectors. Due to my earlier profession and experience within media, I have a strong interest in media and communications issues. Before joining Bird & Bird, I worked for several years as a professional journalist on the economics desk of a Finnish daily newspaper. This experience has provided me excellent research and writing skills that have been proven very useful in my daily work at Bird & Bird. I am a member of the Finnish Bar Association, the Finnish Association for Industrial Property Rights, the Finnish IT Law Association, the Finnish Fashion Law Association and the Finnish Copyright Society.
