Counsel, Member of the Finnish Bar
I am a counsel at Castrén & Snellman’s Helsinki office and specialise in financial and insurance regulatory matters. For over a decade prior to joining Castrén & Snellman I have held several positions within the insurance sector; most recently as director of legal affairs, HR and internal services in the management team of a non-life insurance company. During my career, I have also gained experience as a compliance officer both in a domestic banking concern and an international insurance concern. As I have also held numerous positions of trust within the insurance sector, I have had the opportunity to actively participate in influencing the development of the regulatory framework. I also possess previous experience from a law firm from the late 2000s.
As the amount of financial and insurance regulatory work has expanded in recent years, becoming more complicated with swelling regulations coming mostly from the EU, my versatile background as an in-house counsel provides invaluable insight and experience of insurance corporate practice and the insurance sector in general. Having worked as an in-house counsel, I strive to take identified business challenges into consideration when applying the legal framework. I like to think of myself as an enabler.
In general, I lead an athletic lifestyle and enjoy the art of photography where details shape the big picture. Besides expressing my creativity through photography I also act as the Finnish Membership Director for the Photographic Society of America (PSA).
