Practice Areas

As one of Finland’s most experienced capital markets lawyers, I know the Nordic capital markets from top to bottom. Subsequently, I contributed to the combination of the Finnish and Swedish securities exchanges and the transfer of derivatives trading onto the Eurex exchange. I have also played a role in developing market regulations and practices, e.g. as the chairperson of the Securities and Finance Law Expert Group of the Finnish Bar Association from 2010 to 2015. I have comprehensive strategic insight into how the capital markets work and how public arrangements and investment instruments should be structured. I am also a trusted advisor in private M&A transactions.

I chair the shareholders’ meetings of numerous listed companies and institutions, including Kone Corporation, F-Secure Corporation, Neo Industrial Plc, Titanium Oyj and Ilmarinen Mutual Pension Insurance Company. I served as the chairperson of Castrén & Snellman’s board from 2009 to 2017.

The Legal 500, Chambers Europe, Chambers Global and IFLR1000 rank me among Finland’s leading legal experts.
