During my career, I have specialised in insolvency law. I have handled insolvency matters extensively from different perspectives; I have assisted creditors and debtors, acted as an estate administrator in bankruptcy proceedings and as an administrator in restructuring proceedings.
My other practice area is corporate law, particularly corporate governance issues. I regularly act as a chairperson at general meetings. I was the chairperson of a working group that renewed the Finnish Corporate Governance Code in 2020.
I have also acted as counsel in trials and arbitration proceedings where the disputes have concerned, particularly, management liability, recovery actions, squeeze-outs and various matters related to damages claims or contracts. I have also served as an arbitrator.
The most educational and interesting roles for me have included the various roles I have had in the International Association of Young Lawyers (AIJA) and my role as a member of the AIJA board from 2008 to 2010.
