About me

I never knew who I really wanted to be, but this should not be considered as a handicap. This has led me to try out different things, looking for varied experiences and striving to understand both sides of the equation. When practising as a lawyer, I’ve found this outlook in life to be very helpful, as perfect solutions require a grasp of problems in their entirety.

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

Professional highlights

Public sector experience. I’ve held a number of positions in the public sector and as a supervisory board member of state owned enterprises.

Drafting Acts. I had a hand in drafting the Estonian Competition Act as well as the Public Procurement Act, not to mention numerous other pieces of legislation.

EU working groups and lectures. I’ve also represented Estonia in a number of EU working groups and committees and given lectures and advice as a TAIEX expert on EU e-commerce law in three different continents.
