I am a partner with the firm’s Dispute Resolution & Risk Management team and am also actively involved in the Finance & Insurance and Technology, Media & Telecommunications teams. As a member of a team my goal is to offer relevant sector knowledge, which would best match the client’s needs in a particular situation and to ensure professional representation and effective communication with the client.
Versatile experience. In recent years my main workstreams have related to disputes concerning civil liability of managers, insurance and insolvency. During my professional career I have also gained significant experience advising and representing clients in cases concerning areas of substantive law such as contract law, corporate law, public procurement law, insurance law, real estate law, media law and others. This versatile experience is especially beneficial in terms of forming a team in complex cases and making other strategic case-related decisions.
Experienced litigation professional. During my career as a litigator spanning over 18 years, I have successfully represented clients in some unique cases, including cases relevant to the development of the case law of the Republic of Lithuania. One of the most significant projects I recently worked on is a case where on behalf of our client our team successfully sought application of the largest arrest over assets in the history of Lithuanian case law amounting to over EUR 500 million in a complex international dispute regarding recovery of damages.
Representing state owned entities and political actors. During my professional career I have represented not only privately owned legal entities and their managers but also state owned entities, budgetary institutions, politicians, and others. One of the most complex and interesting cases where I represented a budgetary institution was representing the central tax administrator in a dispute against the National audit office of the Republic of Lithuania over the results of an audit conducted at the Tax Fund of the State Tax Inspectorate.
