Anu Aaltonen

Counsel, Member of the Finnish Bar

I specialise in competition law, state aid and dispute resolution.

Prior to joining Castrén & Snellman in 2021, I worked as counsel for another law firm for over a decade. I’ve also gained experience at the European Commission.

During the years I have gained extensive experience in antitrust proceedings before the competition authorities and courts and I have been representing clients in many domestic landmark anti-trust cases. My experience covers the whole range of competition law advice, including cartel investigations, dominance matters, internal audits and other competition law compliance issues as well as state aid matters. I also have proficiency in representing clients in follow-on damages proceedings as well as in advising companies in commercial disputes. I have been working with various business sectors, such as the forest, construction and pharmaceutical industry, to name a few.

I always try to understand the client’s business and goal in a particular assignment in order to come up with the best possible solution. I keep myself updated in the rapidly changing regulatory field by continuously attending various seminars and lectures.
