Anne Nikula

Lawyer,  M.LL  (qualified Judge)

Honorary title awarded by Vaasa Court of Appeal in 1991

"I have always been interested in other cultures, languages and history. It's amazing to travel and meet people who have the same mindset although they live in another society. Now I have Clients all over the World!"

"I love to work with my Clients. A strong man can feel anguish because some legal or tax matter is unsolved.  It's nice to see him leaving with a big smile."

"Perhaps the funniest moment was the one when an elderly lady in her 90's forgot to take her walker-rollater with her after all paper stuff had been done. She said that a weight had been lifted away form her shoulders.We had  had spoken about a holiday in Spain, and she was in a hurry to get to the travel office."
