Kiira Björkroth appointed as Specialist Counsel

Kiira Björkroth (Attorney-at-Law, LL.M.) has been appointed as Specialist Counsel at Merilampi as of 1 March 2022.

Kiira has been a member of Merilampi’s Real Estate and Construction team for many years now.  She has gained experience particularly in construction and project law and real estate matters and handles disputes in litigation and arbitration proceedings. She also routinely advises our clients on construction contracts and risk management during projects.

Kiira has had a significant role in assisting our construction and real estate sector clients ever since joining Merilampi. In addition to contract and dispute advisory, she has valued experience in insolvency, public procurement, and work safety matters. It’s easy to rely on Kiira to take the lead on even more demanding projects in the future, and she is also my right hand in developing our practice group“, says Emma Niemistö, Partner heading the Real Estate and Construction team.

I gladly accepted the appointment. I joined Merilampi over four years ago, hoping to achieve an even stronger focus on construction related assignments. I knew Emma as an established practitioner from disputes in the field even during my previous job and had a strong vision that the senior lawyer position in her team would fit my goals as the next step for my career. The feeling that I was the “right woman” for the job has been proven correct throughout our collaboration: Merilampi and our clients have offered me a great opportunity to develop myself, and grow to become the kind of experienced construction attorney I aimed to be all those years ago“, comments Kiira.
