About me

As an assistant lawyer with the firm’s Real Estate & Construction practice, I assist senior colleagues mainly with various Real Estate & Construction-related matters, primarily drafting documents as well as analysing diverse legal matters.

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

Professional highlights

Versatile self-development and experience. I have interned as a legal assistant in various fields – I have experience in corporate law, employment law, family law, succession law, administrative law, criminal law, financial law and dispute resolution. Before joining Sorainen I was an intern in our Real Estate & Construction team. During my studies at the university, I have been an active member of ELSA – I was the director of marketing and then moved to the vice president’s position of marketing. After that, I was a director of ELSA4Schools, contributing to improving students’ legal knowledge. Furthermore, I have been to ELSA’s International Council Meeting in Croatia. I have also been a job shadow in a county court and I am a graduate of the Sorainen Student Academy.

Passion for real estate and construction. I find the field of Real Estate & Construction diverse and fascinating. I believe many disputes could be prevented by professional legal advice, e.g. well-crafted documents and advice about possible preventive actions. Furthermore, I invest in real estate which has given me a broad horizon of real estate and construction-related matters.

Corporate and M&A enthusiast. My second passion is Corporate and M&A. During my internships, I have dealt with various corporate matters. I also wrote my Bachelor’s thesis about the application of the Business Judgement Rule in evaluation of board members’ liability by Estonian courts.

Teamwork. I believe that a good working environment and supportive colleagues are of great value. Previously, I have been part of various teams and organisations, which have made me a good team player and I thrive to contribute to the firm and its clients.

ThinkTank. As a member of ThinkTank, I also provide legal assistance in a variety of legal fields to colleagues in other practice groups to broaden my knowledge.
