Maiju Klemola is a Helsinki-based Senior Associate specialized in TMT, digitalization and outsourcing. She is focused on complex cross-border contracts and strategic projects, but her experience covers business as usual -matters as well. She works regularly in IT and business process outsourcings, digital transformation, licensing, cloud and services procurements, including SaaS and other “XaaS” arrangements, as well as software development projects, often with data at their core. Her experience covers the entire life cycle of IT procurement from tendering process preparation to contract negotiation and management of risks in ongoing projects, termination and exit.
She is also frequently engaged in IT and tech-intensive M&A transactions and advises in post-transaction arrangements such as transitional services, carve-outs and contractual aspects of IT integration and separation. In addition to technology-related advisory, she also advises clients in other sourcing-related matters in a range of industries.
Maiju has spent time in-house as a secondee at Nokia, gaining special expertise from the telecommunications sector and deepening her commercial understanding.
She is a former Chair of the Board of the Finnish IT Law Association.
According to clients “Maiju’s knowledge of the technology sector and related legal issues is extensive; when necessary, she has been able to provide advice in a very short time without compromising on quality. Maiju’s ability to provide on-the-spot advice and her case management skills have helped us immensely” (The Legal 500, 2022).
