Kristiina was appointed a Market Court judge in 2013.

  • significant insight and experience from both sides of the bench
  • a wealth of experience to provide clients with qualified in-depth analysis of their chances of success in complicated dispute cases
  • valuable advice to ensure that the dispute resolution process is carried out as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible

“Kristiina’s return to the firm following her experience with the Supreme Court and more recently the Market Court has been generating a lot of interest. Kristiina has such great experience and understanding which she can use to obtain the best possible results for clients. Her expertise and skills further strengthen Borenius’ ability to provide high quality service and advice in relation to a wide range of practice areas”, says Partner Ben Rapinoja.
