Stella Victoria Ojala

Assistant Lawyer


Estonian, English





About me

As a member of our Competition & Regulatory practice group I assist lawyers in advising both local and international clients on various regulatory issues.

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

Professional highlights

Self-development and variability. It is important for me to constantly find opportunities for developing my skills and knowledge base. I have been the Vice President of the Board of ELSA Tartu in the field of seminars and conferences, where I organised events and communicated with various lawyers. During this time, I led and coordinated the work in my field where teamwork was of crucial importance. Thanks to this, I learned to better manage my time and make decisions. I am also a graduate of the Sorainen Student Academy and represented the University of Tartu at the Willem C. Vis International Arbitration Moot as a member of the 2022/2023 team.

Wide know-how base. Before joining Sorainen, I interned at the Estonian Ministry of Justice, where I was involved in the preparation of a major bill, mainly by analysing laws. I also dealt with problems and issues related to the Riigi Teataja, a public journal of the Republic of Estonia. I have also been a teaching assistant in employment law at the University of Tartu.

Teamwork. In addition to the field of law, I am also active in figure skating, having previously helped trainers and young athletes. In the process, I have been in close contact with both mentoring and problem-solving in an area where you need to interact with many different people. As a young lawyer, it is important to me that there are people around me who are inspiring, open and motivating.
