Partner, Member of the Finnish Bar
I specialise in capital markets, financial regulation and corporate law. I have been involved as legal counsel in numerous transactions relating to capital markets, listed companies and regulated institutions. I advise domestic and international financial institutions, insurance companies, issuers and significant shareholders in regulatory matters. I am Lloyd's General Representative for Finland.
I am a recognised legal expert on securities transactions, derivatives and the Finnish system for dematerialised securities. I have contributed to the Finnish Foundation for Share Promotion's guide for companies entering the First North marketplace and to the new guide for entrants to NASDAQ Helsinki's main market. During my career, I have participated in numerous domestic and international law-drafting projects. Since 2006, I have been an appointed expert of the Finnish Ministry of Justice in matters relating to securities law. In this capacity, I have participated as expert counsel to the Finnish delegation in negotiations for the Geneva Securities Convention and for the UNIDROIT principles governing the enforceability of close-out netting. Currently, I act as the Chairperson of the Securities and Finance Law Expert Group of the Finnish Bar Association.
The Legal 500, Chambers Europe, IFLR1000 and Best Lawyers rank me among Finland's leading legal experts.
