Utilities

Our four offices work together to help international and local companies working in the Baltic states and Belarus and specialising in waste, oil, biomass, water supply or other utilities in their interactions with suppliers, customers and regulators. We like to do our part to make sure that water keeps flowing, sewage is properly treated and the recycling process works as intended.
