Castrén & Snellman

Work Department

Data & Technology




I co-head our firm’s Data & Tehcnology team. For years, I have advised our domestic and international clients in complex international data transfer and outsourcing arrangements, carried out data protection audits, prepared privacy programs and advised in numerous national and international data breach cases. I also regularly advise our clients in general issues related to the processing of personal data and in issues related to special data categories, such as the processing of patient data, and in employment-related privacy matters.

I am a popular lecturer on topics related to data protection and privacy matters and I hold several positions of trust at IAPP (International Association of Privacy Professionals). Chambers Europe, Legal 500, Who’s Who Internet & e-Commerce as well as Information Technology rank me among Finland’s leading legal experts.
