Many of the clients we’ve worked with over the years have been foreign investors and international corporations operating in the region, or their subsidiaries, meaning that we have accumulated vast experience in assisting foreign investors in the Baltics and Belarus on a variety of matters and in a variety of sectors. Seamless cooperation between different teams and integrated experience is at the core of our success. When advising foreign investors we typically cover a wide range of diverse issues – from corporate matters to governmental incentives, from employment advice to tax structuring, from office leasing to detailed territory planning and construction permits, from general advice about the business environment to details and rules regarding specialised regulated activities.
We have extensive know-how about projects involving foreign investment support schemes, including negotiations regarding investment agreements with governmental institutions. At the same time we have built strong and reliable relations with these governmental institutions, including state investment agencies, as we co-operate with the state and municipalities in achieving the best possible outcome for our clients in both complex and day-to-day matters. Our experience covers the full cycle of investors’ activities, as we advise clients not only when they enter our markets but also when they decide to leave them. We have represented clients in highly complex and extremely delicate projects that attracted lots of publicity, such as the nuclear power plant in Lithuania planned by Hitachi.
