Sorainen has entered into a collaboration agreement with the Law Faculty of Vilnius University. Under the agreement, Sorainen will present an annual award for the best master thesis of the year from the Law Faculty on the topic of criminal law.

Kæstutis Švirinas, Sorainen partner and head of the Dispute Resolution Practice Group in Lithuania, notes: “I am happy that students who analyse criminal law topic in their master thesis will be eligible for this award. Criminal law includes not only crimes involving life or health but also financial crimes, unfair commercial IP practices and other violations. This scholarship aims to encourage the popularity of criminal law among law students.”

A scholarship of EUR 800 will be presented to the author of the best master thesis. The winner will be selected by a five-person commission representing Sorainen and the Law Faculty of Vilnius University.

Sorainen specializes not only in business and tax law but also has considerable experience in white-collar crime. Our team includes former prosecutors and practising criminal law litigators, who provide skilled and experienced legal assistance and representation for clients facing a crisis or who want to protect their business from future violations.
