More about this expert:
Passion I am a Finnish lawyer with an ambition to handle complex investment rounds, transactions, project documentation from technology licensing agreements to EPCs and this way to help Finnish technology and IP-driven companies in their growth and internationalization efforts. How did I become me? I have worked in an exceptionally wide area of different business fields including cleantech & energy for almost 15 years. Before founding Attorneys at Law TRUST Ltd, I was one of the founding partners of Helsinki office of another Nordic law firm chain to which I was recruited from Castrén & Snellman. At Castrén & Snellman I acted as coordinator of the firm's IP practise and handled lots M&A and venture capital investments and patent litigations. Significant amount of my work has always carried international flavor, and I have had a pleasure of leading and assisting in several complex industrial investments, joint ventures and other technology-based M&A projects in various locations, e.g., in the U.S., in several European countries and in Japan just to mention a few. Problems I solve As an example of problems we have recently solved, in addition to a huge number of technology transactions and licensing, we advised in successful NER300 funding exercises and due diligence, handled investment round documentations for various venture capital deals from seed-stage to complex rounds regarding 700MEUR BtL plant case, we performed valuations for cleantech-sector patent portfolios to enable their strategic use with a view of subsequent financing rounds and M&A transactions, handled patent litigation, and finally, negotiated process licensing and DBO or EPC documents with all the leading global engineering and technology houses to ensure proper risk allocation and securing shareholder value as necessary for bankability. In summary, we have had a privilege to solve just the kind of cases of which we are passionate about and perhaps that is one of the reasons why we have also been ranked as the only boutique law firm in all legal surveys among leaders of this field in Finland - thing of which we are most grateful to our customers and peers alike.
