My main practice areas are corporate and contract law, dispute resolution, real-estate law, inheritance and family law and matters concerning change of generation in companies.

Prior to joining Norra Attorneys I have worked in a law firm and gained long term and extensive experience in particular from corporate law, law of inheritance and family law. In my work as an attorney at law I have handled disputes and criminal cases in court, drafted agreements and assisted my clients in contract negotiation and provided contractual consultancy. I have also assisted my clients in matters concerning real estate law, labour law and changes of business ownership.

I strive to help our clients in problem solving, but I also want to prevent problems in advance if possible.  My goal is to act as a reliable and long-term support for businesses in close interaction with the client.

I have experience in the income taxation of small and medium enterprises as well as large-scale enterprises, international taxation, and transfer pricing.

I advise our clients especially on questions related to employment law. Before joining Norra Attorneys, I have worked for example at an employers’ association and a large international law firm. Prior to my law career, I have graduated as Master of Science in Economics and Business Administration and worked in human resource management, payroll and as a supervisor in retail.

I am especially interested in contract law, but I assist our clients with other business law related assignments as well.

Before finalising my LL.M. and joining Norra as a lawyer in the autumn 2020 I used to work on product development projects for almost 20 years. During that career I have experienced several times the path from an idea to a product from many different perspectives including requirement specifications, subcontracting, manufacturing capability and product quality, regulatory and authority requirements as well as project management points of view.

A practical legal question is hardly ever just legal, but it is connected to the challenges that a company faces in its various areas of operation. A skilful legal solution often requires a broader perspective that recognises the surrounding operating environment. Now that I am able to combine the juridical tools with the knowledge and experience previously gained, I have got excellent qualifications to respond to the diverse challenges that our clients meet in their operations.
