+358 44 060 5132

Sofia Rahikainen is Demos Helsinki’s very own lawyer. She is responsible for the legal affairs of the organization and also works on matters related to employees’ well-being, development and recruitment.

“The most interesting thing as an in-house lawyer is to see and work in the constantly living interface of law and business. Combining this with the tasks of developing a self-directed and diverse organization, truly no workday is the same.”

Sofia has graduated as Master of Laws (oikeustieteen maisteri, OTM) from the University of Helsinki. Prior to Demos Helsinki, she has worked as the CEO of Paragraaffi and in consultancy business at Trainers’ House. Outside of work, Sofia is more likely to be found at sea or from a forest than at home.
