About me

As an assistant lawyer with the firm’s Competition & Regulatory team, I assist senior colleagues in advising domestic and international clients on competition matters. Striving to deliver the highest quality legal assistance, I rely on strong theoretical knowledge, commercial awareness and personal skills.

Professional highlights

Competition. I am most passionate about competition law. While a participant in the Erasmus+ programme, I studied European competition law for a year at Maastricht University.

Broad experience. Prior to joining the Competition & Regulatory team, I gained valuable experience working with the Tax team and doing my traineeship with the Finance & Insurance team. This helps me to view complex business problems from different viewpoints and to offer tailored legal solutions.

Continuous development. Passionate about improving my professional skills, I often participate in moot court competitions, seminars and other training courses. I deepened my knowledge in business law at a Summer School on Law & Business at the Catholic University of Portugal – the oldest and most prominent Law School in Portugal. In 2019, I successfully completed the Fintech specialisation (set of online courses) offered by the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.

Academic Research. In 2020, I co-authored a research paper “Armed drones: can civilians be protected?”. This paper was named among the six best research papers of the year at the closing conference of the Students’ Scientific Society at Vilnius University Faculty of Law.
