As an attorney, my specialism lies in real estate as well as regulatory matters and data protection. The first rule for any good lawyer is to understand the client’s needs first and make sure that any solution that you put on the table is custom-made to suit those needs.
Advising on real estate matters. I took part in advising the Latvian subsidiary of Antalis, a leading global paper and packaging distributor operating in over 40 countries, on the sale and leaseback of an industrial plant located in Latvia, with an approximate transaction value of EUR 4 million. This included drafting the real estate sale and lease agreement and representing the client in negotiations.
I also represented one of the largest visual entertainment providers in the local market in negotiating and amending a lease agreement. The deal involved the lease of premises and fit-out issues, including issues pertaining to protection of intellectual property and division of risks.
Data protection requiring creative solutions. I have carried out several GDPR implementation projects, including for companies with an average annual turnover exceeding EUR 60 million and with over 500 employees. The work required an in-depth business analysis to identify all relevant data streams, data processing practices and the risks involved for the company. Creative solutions were often needed, ensuring compliance with legislation without placing an unreasonable burden on the clients.
I also provide day-to-day advice on how best to ensure GDPR compliance in their business.
Environmental liability and waste management. I have deep knowledge of the sometimes difficult-to-navigate natural resources tax and general waste management regime in Latvia. In that context, I regularly advise international clients, whose supply chains cover multiple jurisdictions, on how best to address their waste management needs and ensure compliance. I also advise clients on general aspects of environmental liability, such as in construction.
