Auksė Trapnauskaitė, one of the top experts in prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing in Lithuania, has joined our Finance & Insurance team.

Augustas Klezys, partner, and head of the firm’s Finance & Insurance sector group, comments: “We have been looking for a highly qualified AML expert for some time, so we are very happy that Auksė is joining our team. We believe that her professionalism and personal qualities will significantly strengthen Sorainen’s Finance & Insurance practice, and that the duo of Auksė and Goda Drąsutė will successfully meet our clients’ needs for top-quality legal services in the area of AML.”

Experience in supervising financial institutions

Before joining Sorainen, Auksė worked at the Financial Market Supervision Service of the Bank of Lithuania, where she was responsible for supervising financial institutions in the field of prevention of money laundering and terrorist financing. She advised financial institutions and led inspections into their activities, and so she is not only well-versed in national and international AML regulation, but also has an in-depth understanding of a wide range of financial products and of the particular characteristics of different financial institutions (from credit institutions and banks to fintech startups).

Auksė says: “I am happy to be joining the very professional and hard-working Sorainen team, where without a doubt many interesting challenges are waiting for me! At the same time, I hope that my experience and knowledge will contribute to the successful work of the firm in advising clients and helping them tackle various issues.”
