About me

Having joined Sorainen in 2006, I have helped build our diverse Competition & Regulatory practice into a regional success. I am passionate about helping clients structure their relationships with customers, vendors and authorities in a fair and pragmatic manner. Believing that the future of the legal business is closely connected with technology, my role is to help Sorainen prepare for that future based on systemised knowledge, an excellent understanding of business processes, and supportive technology. I am the regional co-head of Energy & Infrastructure and the head of the Energy & Infrastructure in Estonia.

Professional highlights

Building services for infrastructure clients. Sorainen was the first law firm active in the Baltics to focus on the infrastructure sector, beginning by helping investors in the railway sector and then expanding the knowledge to the natural gas, electricity, postal, telecom and water sectors. We have assisted clients in international investment protection arbitration, legislative initiatives and transactions both in our region and abroad.

Vast trade advisory experience. Our team has advised on thousands of trade agreements, ranging from purchases of factories or power station equipment to advising on trade structures – trade representation, exclusive distribution, agency, franchises. Our legal solutions are always designed and implemented to deliver desired long-term business results to clients. Through our clients, I have gained thorough experience in the legal regulation of international trading.

EU and regional competition law. I head a team advising clients from all business sectors in a wide range of competition law matters, including dominant position, horizontal cooperation, vertical restrictions, joint ventures, merger clearance, risk assessments and litigation. I represent clients in dealings with both the national competition authorities and the European Commission.

Making technology serve businesses. Businesses often operate in a world where the opportunities provided by technology are barely utilised. True magic happens if the gap between these realms is bridged and technology is implemented for the benefit of business and people. I help clients bridge that gap.
