Eija Warma-Lehtinen





I head our firm’s Data Protection & Privacy practice and co-head our Compliance and & Investigations Service.

Data has become one of the keys to a successful business with digitalisation and new technologies, such as robotics and AI, becoming part of our day-to-day lives. I’m inspired by providing strategic advice to my clients’ upper management in projects aimed at leveraging data and technology in business development.

I have also assisted numerous clients faced with data breaches and assisted clients in demanding domestic and international internal investigations. I also represent clients in disputes and criminal matters before both general and administrative courts. I regularly advise clients in contractual matters relating to personal data and in cross-border data transfer arrangements. I have carried out numerous data protection audits and drafted privacy programmes. I also regularly advise our clients in issues related to marketing, employment-related privacy and the processing of patient data.

Working with people is often the best part of my day. I am a popular lecturer and am praised for being able to explain complex and difficult subjects in an understandable way.

Chambers Europe, Legal 500, Who’s Who Internet & e-Commerce, Information Technology and Women in Business Law rank me among Finland’s leading legal experts. Finnish technology magazine Tivi listed me as one of the top 100 technology influencers in Finland.
