Practicality and versatility make housing law particularly interesting for her. In customer encounters, it is important to identify the relevant issues and give practical information. Customer confidence is earned by doing the job well and thoroughly. Due to her calm nature, Suvi can handle all kinds of situations. As a lawyer she knows the importance of good negotiation and interpersonal skills. Situations may get tricky, but it is important to keep in mind that the disagreement lies between the issues, not people.

Previously, Suvi has worked for Wärtsilä Corporation. Since Wärtsilä’s time, she has strong expertise in employee’s international mobility and personal taxation. The companies are operating increasingly internationally and posting of workers is getting more common. International mobility requires taking new risks and obligations into account.
