About me

I support our Dispute Resolution & Risk Management team in civil, criminal, and administrative matters in out-of-court negotiations as well as court proceedings and arbitration.

According to Art. 40 (3) of the Bar Association Act, lawyers do not provide legal services. Lawyers assist the attorneys.

Professional highlights

Achieving the client’s goals. Before joining Sorainen I was a member of the board in a private company that owns the biggest hotel chain in Estonia and several commercial properties. I have been involved in numerous real estate transactions, complex negotiations, as well as the management of a large company. This versatile experience has taught me to spot alternative ways to reach desired goals.

Perseverance. Challenges and achieving goals have always been a passion of mine. The journey to the end-point is not always easy and often we need to take a few steps back in order to move forward. I value consistent and conscious operation which I also believe to be the key to success for a lawyer.
