Maija Ainamo

I started in Fondia in May 2021. My work background is wide and varied: in 1999-2015 I worked as a country legal counsel for Hewlett-Packard in Finland and the Baltics. Prior to joining Fondia I acted as a specialist employment counsel for HUS, Helsinki University Hospital, which is the second-largest employer in Finland. I have also worked as an in-house lawyer in Telivo/Telia Finland and as an attorney/advocate in Roschier-Holmberg & Waselius in their Helsinki and London offices and as the manager of the Tallinn office of Hedman Advocates.

Employment law is my favorite area of law. In addition, I also like working with questions involving business ethics and compliance, commercial contracts, and transfer of business. I am also interested in dispute resolution and litigation.

I like to spend my free time outdoors, in the woods, with my Spanish rescue podenco. My other hobbies include movies and film festivals, hiking and snowshoeing (preferably in Pallas National Park and alike areas in Lapland), reading, and eternal renovation of my weekend house.
