As an associate in our Tech & Comms and Commercial Groups in Helsinki, I focus on data protection law and also advise our Finnish and international clients on other commercial and IT matters. I am an IAPP-certified information privacy professional (CIPP/E).
My main area of expertise is privacy and data protection law. This includes for example drafting mandatory documentation, training, advising on questions relating to marketing, international data transfers and privacy impacts of new technologies as well as drafting and negotiating data processing agreements. I have worked with clients in a wide range of different industries, including data intensive areas such as media, healthcare, telecommunications and electronic sports, but also more traditional areas of business like real estate and construction.
I was on a six-month secondment at Sanoma, a major Finnish media company, which gave me in-depth knowledge about the industry and a better understanding of the client's needs. During the secondment I assisted the legal and procurement teams with negotiating data processing agreements as well as other data protection related questions.
In addition to privacy and data protection, I advise clients on consumer protection and marketing questions as well as general IT and commercial contracts.
Before graduating, I worked at two other Finnish law firms, and joined Bird & Bird in 2017.
I am an active member of the International Association of Privacy Professionals. I speak Finnish, English, German, French and Swedish and have a basic knowledge of Russian.
