Sorainen Estonia has concluded a lease contract with real estate developer Porto Franco. The deal ‒ advised by Colliers Estonia will involve Sorainen renting 1670 square metres in Porto Franco’s innovative office premises from autumn 2020 following completion of the centre.

Says Toomas Prangli, Country Managing Partner of Sorainen Estonia, “Every day we advise companies in business law, and as a firm we are characterised by our offices ‒ in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Belarus ‒ working in close collaboration and operating as a team. Also, our lawyers are often involved in the largest deals in the region, which requires great commitment and efficiency. So we need premises that support our collaboration-oriented organisational culture but, on the other hand, create a pleasant atmosphere for employees and visiting clients alike. Our firm has grown steadily, so lack of space is one of the reasons for moving, but more importantly, we need offices to support an organisational culture based on teamwork and employee well-being.”

Notes Rauno Teder, Chairman of Board of Porto Franco, “It is a great honour for Porto Franco to house one of the most prominent and prestigious law firms in Estonia – the seaside location will surely be an inspiration for them. Porto Franco will create a new and innovative business environment in Tallinn: right by the sea, brand new, and with top-quality construction. Companies that move to our premises can now shape their offices so as to provide an optimal environment for stimulating development and growth. An office is not just a room with a desk and a chair – a well-planned office space with high-quality interior design can influence the mood of employees and performance by the entire organisation.’

Porto Franco centre, designed by renowned architects Ott Kadarik and Mihkel Tüür, will be constructed in line with the Gold standards of LEED ‒ the most widely recognised and widely used environmentally friendly construction programme. Buildings that comply with LEED Gold standards meet the highest criteria set for environmental sustainability, energy use, construction, and building materials. Porto Franco’s proximity to the sea and the Old Town offer a creative and inspiring environment.
