Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I am a Professor of Nordic Law and the director of the MDP International Business Law. I teach Nordic contract law and commercial law as well as law and economics. At the moment my courses include, e.g., Research Project in International Business Law, Small Group Course in Bookkeeping and Accounting Law and Writing Seminar in Nordic Law.

I have published three academic monographs (Osakassopimuksen tavoitteet ja voimassaolon hallinta, 2008; Yhdenvertaisuus osakeyhtiössä, 2012 and Osakkeen lunastaminen. Osakeyhtiö- ja sopimusoikeudellinen tutkimus, 2015) and altogether 24 peer-reviewed articles in national and international journals and books. In addition, I have dozens of other publications such as two text books on company law (Johdatus osakeyhtiöoikeuteen, 2011 and Osakeyhtiöikeuden oppikirja, 2017) and non-peer-reviewed scientific articles.

I am currently a member of the editorial board of an academic journal (Liikejuridiikka – Business Law), a member in numerous international research projects and networks and, furthermore, an academic mentor for dozens of LL.M. and post graduate students. I have acted twice as an opponent in a doctoral defense. In 2016–2017 I held the position of vice-dean (teaching matters) at the Faculty of Law.

As for on-going research work, I am concentrating on an international research project ("The Sturcture of Cooperative Ownership and Control") and on Nordic civil law and commercial law studies. I am also co-operating actively in Nordic in research work and education.
