Magnusson has further reinforced its dispute resolution team in Finland with the arrival of highly experienced partner Niina Palaja. She will start 1 November 2018 and will head Magnusson’s Turku office.

Niina’s experience covers a wide range of dispute resolution matters, including acting as an arbitrator in ad hoc arbitration proceedings, as well as institutional arbitrations. In addition, Niina specializes in corporate law, contract law and labour law.

“Niina is a visionary with a proven track record of leadership and communication abilities to lead our office in Turku. She will bring gender balance to our partnership, which is a key part of the Magnusson company culture,” commented Tomi Merenheimo, Managing Partner of Magnusson in Finland.

Niina commented: “The ability to work at an international law firm fostering an entrepreneurial culture will be an exciting challenge providing an opportunity to develop our services with my new colleagues both in Finland and internationally. I am looking forward to working together with our clients and in particular contributing to the further growth of the dispute resolution practice of the firm.”
