About me

I am an assistant lawyer with the firm’s Finance & Insurance team, with a focus on banking, financial services and fintech, as well as the prevention of terrorist financing and anti-money laundering (AML).

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

Professional highlights

Positive interactions between individuals and firms. My previous work experience was related to providing legal advice to private individuals. Despite deciding to develop my skills in the field of business law, I support the principle of close cooperation and friendly relations between firms and individuals. I consider alternative conflict resolution to be the best way to resolve both legal and non-legal conflicts.

Effective financial cooperation between Estonia and the EU. Something that is very important to me is the development of Estonia in the context of European and international cooperation on topics such as the free movement of capital and prevention of terrorism. For that reason, I studied European law and also took part in the EU’s Euroscola programme in Strasbourg.

Сonstant self-development. In order to provide quality services to clients and support to our lawyers, it is essential to have a wide range of up-to-date knowledge. I am constantly looking for opportunities for professional and creative development: for example, by learning new languages or participating in courses from various fields of law.
