Recent addition to Kolster IP Legal unit, lawyer Sanna Häikiö, advises our customers especially on commercialising and licensing their technologies and more broadly on the areas of business and contract law.

Sanna Häikiö, LLM, joined our IP Legal unit on 15 August. Sanna has strong experience in business law and commercialising and licensing technologies. Before joining Kolster, she spent the past ten years working as senior legal counsel at VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd. In her career, Sanna’s task areas have included wide areas of business and contract law as well as intellectual property matters, such as technology transfer and licensing agreements. 

I am very pleased that an experienced professional has joined Kolster to provide assistance to our customers especially in matters relating to commercialising and licensing their technologies. Sanna also has experience in spin-off companies, so she is familiar with the special needs of both big and small technology companies, Miia Hirvonen, Director of IP Legal, says.

Thanks for VTT’s own research projects and publicly funded projects as well as commercial projects commissioned by private companies, Sanna has experience in a wide area of different technologies and sectors as well as in selling commercial research results to foreign customers. Sanna is familiar with a wide spectrum of agreements in the areas of joint international research projects, subcontracting, manufacturing and sales. She has an excellent eye for providing advice to companies in matters regarding publicly funded research projects. 

Different juridical services are at a turning point along with other expert fields due to digitisation and other advances in the industry. I am excited to be in a role where I get to develop Kolster’s juridical services to respond to these changes and to offer Kolster’s customers high-quality, straightforward and easy-to-approach juridical expertise with the needs of our client companies as our priority, Sanna says.
