Eimantas Vytuvis, former director of the Centre of Excellence in Anti-Money Laundering, has joined our Finance & Insurance team.

For the last two years, Eimantas headed the Centre of Excellence in Anti-Money Laundering, prior to that he was in charge of anti-money laundering at Nordea and Luminor banks, where he led the Customer Risk Management Unit of Luminor Group. Eimantas is an anti-money laundering expert certified by ACAMS, a global organisation of anti-financial crime professionals.

Augustas Klezys, partner with Sorainen and head of the Finance & Insurance team, says that the geopolitical environment, evolving technology, and a tightening regulatory environment all contribute to the growing need for clients to manage anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing, as well as sanctions risks.

“Eimantas is among the top anti-money laundering experts in Lithuania, and his joining will help us provide our clients with the highest quality of service. I am confident that Eimantas’ expertise and significant experience in both the public and the private sector will help us meet the market’s growing needs in anti-money laundering and sanctions,” says Augustas.

“I am excited to join one of the leading law firms in the region. I believe that my knowledge and experience will allow me to contribute to achieving the team’s main goal – helping clients succeed in business,” says Eimantas.

In addition to his work at Sorainen, Eimantas will also continue working for a fintech company seeking to obtain an electronic money institution licence in Lithuania.
