A joint team from Sorainen and leading international law firm Hogan Lovells is advising RB Rail on drafting the underlying international treaties, infrastructure management agreements and revisions to national laws that are needed for management of the Rail Baltica cross-border railway infrastructure.

The greenfield European-width fast double-track Rail Baltica railway project, known as the project of the century, is the largest Baltic-region infrastructure project in the last 100 years and spans three European Union countries – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania ‒ and will eventually include two more – Poland and Finland, thus connecting Helsinki, Tallinn, Pärnu, Riga, Panevežys, Kaunas, Vilnius and Warsaw, and linking up with the wider European rail network. The estimated cost of the Rail Baltica project is EUR 5.6 billion.

The team is led by Bruno Cantier (Hogan Lovells, UK and France),Vitalija Tamavičiūtė (Sorainen, Lithuania), Kaupo Lepasepp (Sorainen, Estonia) and Lelde Laviņa (Sorainen, Latvia) and includes Charles Ford (Hogan Lovells, UK), Svetlana Rudaja (Sorainen, Lithuania), Raivo Raudzeps (Sorainen, Latvia), Valts Nerets (Sorainen, Latvia), Jūlija Valpētere (Sorainen, Latvia) and Kaspar Endrikson (Sorainen, Estonia).
