About me

As a counsel with the firm’s Finance & Insurance team and a certified AML expert (ACAMS), I specialise in anti-money laundering, international sanctions regulation and the fintech sector.

Professional highlights

Financial services risk management. My extensive experience in both the public and private sectors gives me an in-depth understanding of the risks that the finance sector participants face. I advise clients on the implementation of AML, terrorist financing and sanctions requirements, as well as on establishing internal controls and procedures to mitigate related risks effectively. I also conduct external AML audits that involve reviewing internal procedures and identifying non-compliance aspects within organisations’ existing processes.

Setting up Center of Excellence in Anti-Money Laundering (AMLC). I lead the establishment of AMLC, including setting-up AMLC’s vision, mission, and KPIs and forming a team of experts. The centre, founded by the Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Lithuania, the Bank of Lithuania and commercial banks, aims to strengthen the framework on anti-money laundering and counter-terrorist financing in Lithuania.

Developing the legal framework. I was involved in drafting the legislative amendments to the Law on the Prevention of Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing of the Republic of Lithuania regarding new requirements applicable to the crypto sector.
