We mourn the loss of our dear colleague Ola Ilebrand on 4 January 2014. Just a few weeks ago Ola won the last of his many victories in courts and arbitration proceedings. However, he was not able to win his fight against cancer. He left us far too soon only 36 years old, but his spirit and humour will still be felt for years to come. Love of his young wife Ba, work, nature, mountain climbing and skiing enhanced his life. He will be greatly missed by his family and his friends at Hannes Snellman. We miss you Ola.
