As a specialist in mergers and acquisitions (M&A), private equity and corporate restructuring, I strive to be business-minded and follow the business and financial rationale of the deal. I have advised both sellers and buyers, including private equity funds and other institutional clients, across all transaction stages, from legal due diligence and drafting transaction documentation to conducting a deal and advising on post-closing issues.
Setting up corporate structures. I have advised on planning and setting up corporate structures, and on restructuring groups and have led and contributed to several cross-border mergers involving companies located in multiple countries. I aim to be proactive and co-ordinate corporate structures with all stakeholders for the convenience of the client.
Role in significant transactions. The landmark cases I have been involved in include advising Nasdaq on the merger of central securities depositories in the Baltics, advising Nordea on combining its Baltic operations with DNB and establishing Luminor as a new regional bank, advising Providence Equity Partners in acquiring Modern Times Group’s media and telecommunications business in the Baltics, and advising a consortium of AMP Capital Investors and Infracapital Partners II in acquiring Adven Group, a provider of energy infrastructure and services.
Covering several sectors. I have been involved in M&A transactions in several sectors, such as banking, energy, media and telecommunications. I also serve as a member of our practice groups in Technology, Media and Telecommunications as well as Energy and Infrastructure.
Case and team management. As a senior associate I have been exposed to project and team management and over the years have consciously developed skills for seamless and interactive hands-on case management. I have also been an active mentor to several talented young women at our firm.
