About Toni

Toni has several years’ experience in various employment law assignments. Toni has years of experience in various types of complex litigation and arbitration and has previously worked as a District Prosecutor. Toni has assisted companies in a wide range of disputes and mediations. Over the years, Toni’s clients have included major Finnish listed companies as well as individuals, the common denominator being the clients’ desire to have a dedicated and always attentive lawyer.

Toni is one of the few attorneys in Finland who specialises in occupational health and safety offences, and he is also a trainer in this field. He has published a number of articles in the field and two books on occupational health and safety offences (“Occupational Health and Safety Offences”, Edita, 2013 and 2019).

For many years, Toni’s own practice has consisted almost exclusively of legal and administrative proceedings and consultations related to occupational safety offences. He has exceptional and exclusive expertise in this field in Finland.

For more than 10 years, Toni has regularly dealt with proceedings concerning occupational safety offences in particular and has also trained and advised supervisors on occupational safety issues. Toni is well acquainted with various companies with special characteristics and production facilities. In recent years, Toni’s work with industrial companies has also focused very much on the prevention of accidents at work and the development of occupational safety activities in the form of consultancy in cooperation with HSE organisations.
