As a senior associate with the Sorainen Finance & Insurance practice in Estonia I contribute to team work with an insider’s know-how from the financing and banking sector. Having diverse experience as a long-time in-house lawyer and Baltic regulatory risk manager of a financing institution and head of legal (Estonia) in one of the largest financial services providers in the Baltic region, I have a good understanding of the needs and challenges that businesses in the sector are facing.
According to Art. 40 (3) of the Bar Association Act, lawyers do not provide legal services. Lawyers are assisting the attorneys.
Experience in the financing and banking sector. During over 10 years working experience in the field of financing and banking I have advised major financing transactions, contributed to pre- and post-transaction legal DD, drafted regulatory documentation, processes and instructions for a financing institution and bank.
Regulatory Compliance and AML. One of my main interest areas is ensuring regulatory and AML compliance of businesses in the financing sector. I obtained an ICA International Advanced Certificate in AML from Manchester University and have contributed to the development of regulatory compliance and an AML framework in a financial institution covering the whole Baltic area. In 2020 I am also participating in the National AML Risk Assessment working group as a representative of FinanceEstonia.
Cross-border project management. I have experience in both participating and leading cross-border legal projects and teams in the Baltics.
