"Real estate and property development have been an essential part of my professional life. Over the years my assignments have divided largely between real estate and corporate transactions. The development of the real estate industry in Finland and the substantially increased relevance of foreign investors have given me an opportunity to participate in the most demanding projects within the real estate industry in Finland assisting both domestic and foreign clients.

”The foundation of my career as a real estate attorney was built on several years of experience not only as an external advisor but also as a client of legal services. My professional experience is a combination of the traditional route of a transactions associate at major commercial law firms followed by several years as in-house counsel at a public listed company operating in the field of environmental and property services. Upon returning to private practice after being a client myself, I have since focused on a wide range of real estate transactions and real estate development projects. Personal experience of being a client for many years is a permanent element in my work, always helping to understand the client's perspective to the project at hand.
