Mari Mohsen and Lasse Nordström speakers at the Municipality Fair in Helsinki
Several of our experts participated in the Municipality Fair in September and talked about topical legal questions faced by public sector organizations. The two-day event was filled with new acquaintances and lively discussions about the increasingly complex legal issues encountered by public sector entities in their day-to-day operations.
At the Fair, Roschier was represented by a team of experts: Mari Mohsen and Jukka Paloheimo (Employment), Mikko Alkio and Lasse Nordström (EU and Competition) as well as Martti Ylinen (Real Estate and Energy & Infrastructure). During discussions with visitors at the Roschier stand, they covered a range of relevant topics such as energy projects underway in several cities and municipalities, development of public infrastructure assets, public procurement, and employment-related matters.
On the second day of the event, Mari Mohsen and Lasse Nordström held a presentation on topical legal questions faced by public sector organizations. The presentation, delivered to a packed audience, covered two themes, with Mari discussing the employer’s responsibility to prevent harassment and other misbehavior at the workplace and Lasse outlining key considerations for ensuring compliance with EU state aid rules.
The Municipality Fair is the largest annual event for Finnish public sector organizations, gathering representatives from municipalities, the recently created welfare areas, the central government as well as the private and voluntary sectors.
Roschier is at the disposal of public sector clients whenever they need a strategic speaking partner in legal matters.
