Practice/Organization Description

I have participated during my career as an attorney in several domestic and cross-border M&A transactions (e.g., in Finland, Russia, UK, US and France), joint ventures, licensing, outsourcing, collaboration arrangements as well as other contentious and non-contentious IP and technology matters with specific expertise on patent litigation and patent-intensive business sectors in general such as pharmaceutical, forestry, cleantech, telecom and high-tech.

I have both studied and worked extensively with internet and technology law, licensing, patents and IP litigations both in Finland and in abroad as well as written on these topics extensively both under English and Finnish law. I have also lectured on these topics at the law faculties of the Universities of Helsinki and Turku.
