About me

As a senior associate with the firm’s Finance & Insurance team, I have been practicing law since 2008 and have significant experience in advising local and international financial market players on regulation of financial and insurance services sector, financial and insurance products and their distribution, along with related disputes.

Professional highlights

Cross-border provision of financial services. I advise clients on cross-border provision of financial and insurance services, setup and structuring of operations, including regulatory, product and distribution advice.

Financial sector-related M&A transactions. I was involved in landmark regional M&A cases in the financial sector and advise on local and cross-border business transfers.

Specialized financial transactions. My extensive practical experience in highly specific financial transactions ranges from lending and security to capital markets.

Finance and insurance disputes. I advise on disputes related to financial services and insurance and have extensive experience in insurance claims management.

Developing the legal framework. I was involved in drafting and implementing EU and Lithuanian financial legislative initiatives; in 2018, I co-authored the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) netting country opinion for Lithuania.
