I am an associate in our Tax Group, based in Helsinki. I advise both domestic and international clients in various tax related matters.
My areas of specialisation are corporate taxation, such as matters relating to transactions, tax structuring, transfer pricing and other other domestic and international tax matters. I also advise entrepreneurs and individuals in matters relating to their personal taxation. Recently, together with my team, I have worked with W&I insurance projects and real estate transactions.
Prior to joining Bird & Bird, I worked as a corporate tax consultant at a big 4 company in Finland with a focus on both buy and sell side mergers and acquisitions and transfer pricing. During my time as a consultant, I gained experience in wide range of different industries including ICT, financial services, automotive, healthcare and consumer products. I also developed strong project management and communication skills.
I am a problem-solver, analyst and innovative thinker. I believe that a good lawyer is more than technically brilliant and has an ability to think outside of the box, has good listening skills and a genuine will to meet the clients' needs. I chose a career in the legal profession because I wanted to work with intellectually challenging tasks in a dynamic and constantly evolving, international environment. Personally, I find it fulfilling to help businesses and organisations with their legal problems.
I get my energy from various types of sport such as cycling, gym and football as well as exploring new cultures by travelling.
