As a dispute resolution specialist, I have in-depth experience of arbitration, litigation and alternative dispute resolution spanning over three decades.
In 2020, having been a partner at Roschier Attorneys Ltd for twenty years, I set up my own practice dedicated to serving as independent arbitrator and mediator in international and domestic disputes. In addition, I provide expert opinions for arbitration or court proceedings in Finland and for the purposes of legal risk management.
During my career I have been involved in more than 200 major disputes as counsel or arbitrator. The matters in question have included several landmark and high-value cases relating to energy, construction, shareholders' agreements, product liability, securities law and personal liability of directors, as well as a wide variety of contractual matters involving among others M&A, private equity, distribution, IT and telecom.
I have participated in the development of alternative dispute resolution mechanisms in Finland and internationally and served on the Board of Finland Arbitration Institute and on the Mediation Board of the Finnish Bar Association. Currently I am the member nominated by Finland in the ICC International Court of Arbitration. My working languages are Finnish, English, Swedish, French and German.
