Very precise and thorough in what she does.

Chambers Europe 2019, Employment

Suvi Knaapila is by far the best HR legal advisor I’ve worked with in 15 years. She always makes time for us, covers different scenarios and approaches, and has taken extra time to understand our working culture and how her HR input and counsel aligns with that. She helped with everything from contracts, to layoffs, furloughs, negotiations, and other HR scenarios. We’ve also talked about different growth scenarios and how decisions I make now may impact us in the future. I really feel we’d be lost with Suvi’s excellent direction.
