“Speed, commercial understanding and competence with a true partnership across the Baltic reach,” was one client's assessment of SORAINEN and peers agree that the firm's regional ability stands out in a market where such capability is an important attribute: “They have become more integrated into the region and recognised by the market,” says one.

One client says: "I have worked with them for 15 years. They are my preference because of speed, commercial understanding and competence. They always have an open mind, are flexible and respond to the Baltic market price competition. I have used them in Estonia and Lithuania [In addition to using them in Latvia] as well and there is a true partnership across countries. They are good at working together."

“It was a very good experience. They were very good at tasks at hand...flexible, hardworking, good standard of work,” says one client, adding: “We got advice that was more business advice than purely legal. It helps when you go to a new country.”
