When his father passed away in 2003 Irkka inherited just over 3% of Kone and 10% of Cargotec. Ilkka and his two brothers sued for a larger stake after finding out that the majority of the family's ownership in Kone Corporation went to the oldest brother Antti who is the former CEO and current chairman. In 2005 the dispute was resolved with Antti maintaining control and an ownership stake in Kone while the other siblings would get a majority stake in Cargotec and a minority stake in Kone.
