About me

I am a senior associate with the firm’s Finance & Insurance team, dividing my time between three fascinating legal fields: insurance law, project finance & PPP, and anti-money laundering (AML).

Professional highlights

Interconnected fields of law. From the very beginning of my career my primary focus was insurance law (regulatory, contracts, claims management). Working in this wide and diverse legal field I gained significant knowledge of other fields, including development, financing and further transactions involving real estate. This experience naturally led to additional specialization in project finance and public private partnership (PPP). Similar reasons led to my specialisation in AML – working in the insurance regulatory field I often handle compliance topics, which brought my attention to the extremely challenging, yet very interesting, AML field.

Professional experience in the insurance sector. I started my career at a major insurance broking company in Lithuania, where I gained practical knowledge of insurance products and related client needs. I also took on the challenge of heading the legal department at Gjensidige in Lithuania. This experience has been particularly valuable to my practice with Sorainen, as it allows me to see the issues that our clients face through their perspective.

AML regulation. I am a member of the AML-focused working group of the Payments Council established by the Bank of Lithuania and Ministry of Finance to facilitate dialogue between the regulator and the market. This allows me to contribute to development of AML regulation and to stay on top of the most relevant practical and regulatory issues in this field.
