I am a Finnish lawyer with an ambition to handle complex transactions and IP litigations and at the same time help Finnish technology and IP-driven companies in their growth and internationalization.
I have worked in an exceptionally wide area of different business fields such as cleantech & energy, high-tech, telecom, sports and pharmaceutics just to mention a few. Significant amount of my work has always carried international flavour, and I have had a pleasure of leading and assisting in several complex strategic transactions and technology-based projects in various locations, e.g., in the U.S., in several European countries and in Japan just to mention a few. As an example of my recent work, in addition to a huge number of technology transactions and licensing, I advised in the 700MEUR BtL plant case, Alkali Oy and its owners in the sale of the company to Alma Mediapartners Oy, a Finnish company in their ERP project in Norway, a Finnish NASDAQ OMX Helsinki listed company in their three divestments in Finland, Norway and UK, and now we are engaged into two pharmaceutical patent litigations which might proceed in the near future - just the kind of cases why I love my job!
