Susanna Derefalk has joined the FAI team as a Case Manager in the FAI Specialisation Programme for Arbitration Lawyers as of 1 February 2022.
As part of the FAI Specialisation Programme, Susanna will, in addition to case management work, further develop her expertise in arbitration with the institutional experience. She will participate in the Finnish Arbitration Academy, which will be organised starting in September 2022, as well as other national and international FAI events.
Prior to joining the FAI, Susanna has been working as an Associate Lawyer at the dispute resolution team of Krogerus Attorneys Ltd. Susanna has worked with both domestic and international arbitration throughout her professional career. In law school, she focused on arbitration during the latter part of her university studies. Susanna speaks Swedish, Finnish and English.
“I am excited to join the FAI as a Case Manager as it enables me to gain further understanding of and seeing arbitral proceedings from a different perspective. I have used the FAI services both as counsel and tribunal secretary, and now I have the valuable opportunity to experience the proceedings from the FAI’s perspective”, Susanna says.
The FAI Secretary General, Sanna Kaistinen, welcomes Susanna to the team:
”We are very happy to welcome Susanna to the FAI. Susanna’s prior experience in dispute resolution and arbitration provides an excellent background for case management work and for contributing to the development projects at the FAI Secretariat. We are delighted to have her as our new colleague.”
