Dittmar & Indrenius’ employment practice is the leading and one of the biggest employment practices in Finland. We continuously assist our clients in all aspects of employment, benefits and pensions law by creating true added value within day-to-day employment advisory, company reorganisations, dispute resolution, mergers & acquisitions and outsourcing. Our practice has been ranked in Tier 1 in Chambers Europe. In addition, all partners of our practice have been ranked by Chambers as leading practitioners.

I head Dittmar & Indrenius' Employment, Benefits & Pensions practice. I have an extensive experience of Finnish and international employment and pensions law. I advise corporate clients in all employment, pensions and employee benefits related issues, including reorganizations, M&A, outsourcing arrangements and dispute resolution. Before joining Dittmar & Indrenius in 2004, I worked with the Finnish Association of Support Service Industries and as an attorney.

I provide day-to-day employment law advice to, among others, GlaxoSmithKline, Santen Pharmaceuticals, Finnair, Rexel, Finnish State Railways, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Apple and Qualcomm. In addition, I have assisted Finnair in many precedent-setting court cases concerning, among others, the use of precautionary measures to prohibit illegal strikes and thereto related damage claims. Further, I have represented major Finnish Technology Industry and Forest Industry companies in precedent-setting criminal and damage claim cases regarding labour unions' liabilities in illegal strikes.
