“I am originally from a small town from the southern part of Finland from which I moved to the beautiful city of Turku in pursuit of both a legal and a business degree.

I have spent over a decade abroad living and working in Austria, Switzerland, and Malta. During this time, I have worked as an expert gaming lawyer for a prominent Austrian law firm, in-house legal counsel for a large game provider, and also provided legal consultation for both B2C and B2B companies operating in the iGaming and Entertainment sectors. Now is the right time to bring together the Nordic way of doing business, niche legal expertise, and international network of top-notch legal professionals in the field of gaming; all of this culminates in Legal Gaming.

Lawyers with business acumen are what the gaming industry needs. Your business is our business. Legal Gaming is able to provide its clients with quality legal advice because we understand the gaming industry and how businesses operate in that sector.”

I entered iGaming industry for a small company whose operations were based in a 2-bedroom apartment that was converted into an office. In the iGaming industry businesses are capable of growing rapidly and so did we, going from few employees to over a hundred just in a couple of years. I got the privilege to go through the growth stage in various key roles and to participate in setting up B2C operations, such as KYC, CS, Risk, Fraud and Payments, and RG. By getting the chance to concentrate on RG, I gained experience from regulatory compliance, license applications, different legislations and regulations, technical compliance, information security management systems and so on. At this point the entity I worked for had changed from operator to B2B-business as a platform provider, game-aggregator and white-label solution, within the same group.

B2B-side, particularly the license applications, got me to see the bigger picture more clearly. I gained an understanding of things such as how much work modifying your own platform can be, how complex process it can be to meet all the regulatory and technical compliance requirements, how much work is behind that game labs logo on your front-end design etc. I find all of this fascinating and I am excited to look forward to the new projects ahead!
