I am a senior associate with a focus on M&A, private equity and venture capital transactions. I head the firm’s Startup team in Lithuania and actively contribute to developing our Technology, Media & Telecommunications team.
M&A transactions. I have been involved in M&A transactions advising a wide variety of clients from start-ups to large corporations. Having worked with Sorainen for over five years enables me to participate in every stage of these transactions, including structuring, legal due diligence, drafting transaction documents and leading the transaction team.
A technology geek. Many of our clients are local and international tech startups whom we are advising on diverse matters – from birth to successful exit. My role in advising startups usually involves advising on preparation for and structuring the investment plus successful execution of the investment round or exit or simply acting as a general legal advisor. Heading the Start-up team in Lithuania means I often coordinate the case among colleagues in different legal fields. This allows startups to save time on communication in order to focus on perfecting their product.
In-depth understanding of business needs. Before joining Sorainen I was sole in-house lawyer for a big company group in Lithuania, an experience that enables me to take the client’s view and understand the client’s needs from the client’s perspective. I understand the importance of business-friendly advice rather than a dry legal answer and am delighted when able to help clients succeed.
Strong corporate law background. Corporate law was my main specialization during the first few years with Sorainen, when I assisted many international clients in establishing subsidiaries or transferring their business to Lithuania, advising on matters such as establishing the company and establishment-related tax issues, as well as immediate post-establishment matters. These days I enjoy helping clients on more complex corporate matters, such as group restructuring, reorganisation (mergers and spin-offs) and business transfers.
