Maarit Taurula

Counsel, Master of Laws, MA

I advise our clients in all areas of competition, State aid and public procurement law. Prior to joining Castrén & Snellman I worked for the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority (FCCA), last as Director and Head of Department dealing with antitrust enforcement. I have also been in charge of the FCCA’s public procurement supervision (2017–2018) and merger control functions (2010–2016). In these capacities, I have overseen a wide range of high-profile merger control cases, antitrust investigations and judicial proceedings. With more than 20 years of experience in competition enforcement I have a thorough knowledge of the functioning and priorities of the competition authorities both in Finland and abroad.

In addition to my Master of Laws degree from the University of Helsinki I have completed an MA in Public Procurement Regulation from the King’s College London.
