Assistant Lawyer

About me

As an assistant lawyer with the Real Estate and Construction team, I assist senior colleagues  in performing tasks primarily related to construction, environmental, real estate and planning law.

Under Art. 40 (3) of the Estonian Bar Association Act, lawyers do not provide legal services. Lawyers assist attorneys.

Professional highlights

Teamwork. I believe that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. That’s why I value teamwork and a supportive work environment. I have been developing my teamwork skills for years, in order to contribute to the team, rather than just benefit from its work. In addition to taking part in various organisational teams and the student council, I am now also the Vice President of Academic Activities at ELSA Tartu.

Self-development. In a team, it is important to set an example for your colleagues and to motivate each other. That is why continuous individual development is important to me. In order to achieve real self-development, I have tried to step out of my comfort zone as much as possible. In addition to school work, I actively participate in competitions and activities aimed at law students.
