Senior Counsel, Tax, Member of the Finnish Bar
Having worked in our firm on tax and corporate law related matters for more than ten years, I enjoy getting involved in assignments where I can ensure that our client receives tax efficient and functional solutions. Additionally, having worked as a judge in the District Administrative Court, dealing specifically with tax appeals, I have a strong focus on supporting clients in their correspondence with the tax authorities as well as in any possible tax litigation processes.
I have advised both Finnish and foreign clients relating to structuring and financing transactions wherein specialised advice from a tax perspective is needed. Additionally, I work closely with our real estate and construction group in real estate transactions where tax issues related to income, value added and transfer tax type of question pay an important role; work which find very interesting.
In developing my professional skills and mastering new legislative amendments I have found it very useful to lecture in front of different audiences. In addition to lecturing in our own client seminars, I have lectured at the request of various businesses and training organisations on topics related to corporate taxation and M&A and taxation matters, as well as tax issues related to different real estate structures.
I am on leave until May 2018 while I work as a temporary justice at the Supreme Administrative Court.
