I have over 20 years of experience in advising companies on tax matters. I have provided comprehensive advice to both domestic and international companies from all fields of business. In addition to publicly listed companies, I have assisted several family-owned companies and their owners. I specialise in corporate taxation, international tax law, mergers and acquisitions, and tax litigation.
Prior to joining Castrén & Snellman, I was a partner and head of tax practice in another Finnish law firm. I have also worked as a tax specialist in an international auditing company. In the early days of my career, I worked for the Ministry of Finance preparing tax laws.
I defended my doctoral thesis on tax law in 1998, and since 2002 I have been an adjunct professor of tax law at the University of Helsinki. I have authored several books and articles on taxation, and I am a co-author of ‘Corporate taxation I-II’, a cumulatively supplemented handbook on tax law.
Chambers Europe, The Legal 500, Who’s Who Legal, International Tax Review and Best Lawyers rank me among Finland’s leading tax experts.
