Henrikki Tahkokallio is a super-solid senior associate, my pick for when the going gets tough and I want to rely on someone 100%.

Eeva Riivari: Hard working person who makes sure all details are solved.

[Mikko Alkio and] Katja Jaakkola are excellent, fast, and innovative lawyers.

[Salla Suominen and] Sanna Kaistinen’s professionalism and their dedication out won the opposition 10 to 0. I honestly felt sorry for the other company’s counsellors.
