 |  February 12, 2017

Finland and Sweden-based Roschier has expanded its partnership in Helsinki by promoting Ami Paanajärvi, who focuses on representing corporates in antitrust proceedings before the European Commission and the Finnish Competition and Consumer Authority (FCCA).

In addition, she advises on multi-jurisdictional merger control, dominance, behaviour antitrust and state aid procedures before the Commission, with her clients stemming from the retail, media and manufacturing sectors.

Paanajärvi’s experience also includes representing businesses in regulatory proceedings regarding the mergers of Finnish companies with foreign ones.

An example of her recent work is acting for telecommunications companies Eltel Networks and Eltel Group in a EUR 35 million cartel proceeding before the FCCA.

She also represented Finnish communications company Nokia in merger control proceedings relating to the EUR 5.44 billion sale of its devices and services operations to American technology giant Microsoft Corporation.

Paanajärvi has been with Roschier for more than 11 years, having joined after five-and-a-half years at the Amsterdam and Brussels offices of Benelux firm Stibbe.
