This Helsinki firm was formed in 2009 when Carita Wallgren-Lindholm said goodbye to Roschier after more than 25 years to establish an independent arbitration boutique. Her husband and former senior partner at Roschier, Tomas Lindholm, joined her a year later.

The firm scaled back its practice in 2013 because of concerns about Tomas Lindholm’s health, with four younger members of the firm moving to Roschier. Tomas Lindholm died in 2014, but his wife has since resumed her busy practice, flanked by one associate, Johanna Pasila.

Having split her time evenly between transactional work and arbitration for most of her career, Wallgren-Lindholm now focuses mainly on sitting as chair or sole arbitrator in international cases – including investment arbitrations. She also acts as a strategic adviser in dispute resolution and corporate matters. Her clients hail from Finland, Estonia, Germany, Italy, Norway, Sweden and the US.

In 2007, Finland appointed her to the ICSID panel of conciliators for a five-year term, which was renewed in 2014. She’s a vice chair of the ICC commission on arbitration and ADR and a member of the ICC Court. Recently she’s joined the advisory council of an arbitration centre in Atlanta.
