Hanna Pahk is an associate specialising in corporate, employment and M&A matters.

In addition to handling employment law-related issues, company formation and liquidation, Hanna also advises on questions of everyday company management, as well as on contracts between a company and members of its managing body. She is experienced in advising clients in cross-border merger and other deals, as well as top level management missions to Estonia and abroad, special arrangements with key employees, transfer of enterprises, unifying worldwide codes of conduct, labour disputes and generally questions concerning the working environment.

The topic of her master’s thesis was “Termination of employment contracts on the initiative of the employer for reasons deriving from the employee’s conduct: regulatory deficiencies in Estonia”. Hanna studied as an exchange student at the law faculty of the University of Konstanz, in Germany. In addition, she gained professional experience on an internship programme at Clifford Chance in  Frankfurt am Main, Europe’s second largest financial centre. She also took part in the European Lawyers Programme at the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh, where she gained first-hand experience of the adversarial system and developed her advocacy and legal English skills, working together with senior Scottish judges and practising lawyers.

Before joining Sorainen, Hanna practised law in a law firm dealing particularly with German-speaking clients. Hanna’s work has also involved her in the field of insurance and transportation.
