Dr. Daivis Švirinas, former managing partner at BORENIUS Lithuania, and Žygimantas Pacevičius, head of the dispute resolution practice at BORENIUS Lithuania, are joining SORAINEN. Along with them a team of eleven qualified lawyers will also join SORAINEN.

Comments Laimonas Skibarka, co-managing partner of SORAINEN and office managing partner of SORAINEN Lithuania: “We are glad that Daivis Švirinas and Žygimantas Pacevičius have decided to join our firm, bringing with them a strong team of lawyers. They will further strengthen our practices in competition, energy and dispute resolution and will contribute to helping our clients succeed, which is our core purpose.”

Over the past five years Dr. Daivis Švirinas has been managing partner at BORENIUS Lithuania and also headed their competition and energy practices.

Notes Daivis Švirinas: “We have always striven to ensure the highest quality of legal services to our clients. Client expectations have been growing lately and this further stimulates the ongoing consolidation of the legal services market. Having seen the agile growth of SORAINEN in the Baltic States and Belarus, we decided to join this firm with which we also share the same professionalism, high standards and approach towards the quality of legal advice. SORAINEN will be strengthened by the accession of our team and thus even better placed to ensure top quality services to our clients.”
