Ability to solve clients’ problems in challenging environment is one of my core competences. This means hands-on expertise in more than just legal intelligence: strategic issues, international team building, investments and finance, i.e. all the essentials of successful growth.

Our recently established accelerating programme aims to identify and support potential new growth companies in Finland. Moreover, we want to serve the foreign companies willing to expand to Russia and vice versa – from Russia to Europe and further to international markets.
