In the recently released Chambers 2023 High Net Worth rankings, Sorainen stands out as the strongest law firm in the Baltics, being the only one with the highest Band 1 rankings across the region in Private Wealth Law. This makes the Sorainen private client team the only one in the region with proven experience and market acknowledgement.

’’We are humbled to receive such positive feedback from our clients and major researchers like Chambers and Partners. As the legal issues get increasingly complex in our region, so do the sophisticated legal and tax needs of high-net-worth individuals and families. We have formed a multidisciplinary team of experts who are dedicated to finding the best solutions for our client’s issues, allowing them to pursue their careers and interests,’’ comments Kärt Anna Maire Kelder, regional head of our private client team.

The best on the market

We are the only firm to receive the highest Band 1 ranking in all Baltic countries. Our Lithuanian private client team topped the research for the fourth year in a row, being the only team on the market with such a track record. Our Estonian and Latvian teams firmly entered the inaugural Private Wealth Law rankings as Band 1 teams.

Across the region, clients praise our wide know-how base, skill for solving complex matters and focus on providing the best client service. “You are getting the best on the market, and you can approach them with complex issues that overlap with multiple different areas; very few teams can do that,” notes a pleased client. Another adds: “Sorainen stands out because of their market standing and client service.” The team is further praised for its fast and client-centred approach: “Sorainen is very prompt, very efficient and provides a very good service.”

Market leading team

Sorainen is also the most recognised and recommended team according to individual rankings with all local team leaders – counsel Kärt Anna Maire Kelder in Estonia, partner Jānis Taukačs in Latvia and partners Saulė Dagilytė and Sergej Butov in Lithuania – being ranked as the highest Band 1 legal advisors.

Reflecting on their experience with the regional head of our private client team, Kärt Kelder, a client notes: “She is incredibly organised, fully understands the concepts, and analyses them amazingly and quickly. I am very impressed with her global knowledge.” Another source praises Lithuanian country managing partner Saulė Dagilytė: “She solves issues which other law firms and competitors say won’t work. She then shows that it could be done.”, as well as partner Sergej Butov: “I think his work is good and he has good problem-solving skills.” A client in Latvia names partner and local tax expert Jānis Taukačs as a leading expert in his field: “He is a very good tax lawyer and one of the best in Latvia.”
