She has much experience in handling cases related to dominant positions and horizontal restrictive practices in the service of the Finnish Competition Authority, in working as a national expert in the European Commission, and in representing the Finnish Competition Authority in legal workshops.

In the Attorneys-at-Law, she has handled client companies’ cases related to competition law and issues related to public procurement and government support.
