Dr. Šarūnas Keserauskas will continue his career at Ellex in Lithuania

Dr. Šarūnas Keserauskas, who headed the Competition Council of the Republic of Lithuania for twelve years, returns to Ellex Valiunas (Ellex in Lithuania), the largest law firm in the Baltic states, in September. He will continue his career as a partner and, together with the team, will develop the practice of Competition law and other areas of business supervision.

Šarūnas is one of the most respected competition law professionals in the Baltic states and was awarded the Cross of the Knight “For Merits to Lithuania”. President Dalia Grybauskaitė presented him with the Order as an overall recognition of the work and efforts of the Competition Council team. During his tenure, the Competition Council was recognised as one of the most professional institutions in the world and has received the World Bank Award for promoting competition culture and an award in the prestigious Antitrust Writing Awards competition.

Joining the law firm where I started my legal career, I will bring with me the experience I have gained working for competition authorities in Lithuania and the United Kingdom, as well as participating in the activities of international organisations and implementing international projects. I will share this experience with Ellex`s Competition practice as it strives to establish itself as an internationally recognized centre of excellence. We have set the bar high, but I have no doubt that with such a team of professionals, we will overcome it,” says Šarūnas Keserauskas, the new partner at Ellex Valiunas.

Šarūnas previously worked at this law firm for almost 14 years.

Ellex Competition law practice is recognised by international legal directories such as Chambers and Partners, Legal500, Who’s Who Legal, and Global Competition Review as Lithuania’s top-tier law firm for many years. Partners Marius Juonys and Dr. Lauras Butkevičius are internationally ranked as two of the top five competition law experts. Together with partner Dr. Karolis Kačerauskas, who specialises in state aid matters, they are three of the top five experts in this field.

“I am confident that with Šarūnas joining our team, the Ellex competition law practice centre in the Baltics will excel in competence and experience many foreign law firms leading in the international competition law arena so far. We have been moving towards this in a focused way, as Ellex’s ambition is to work even more actively with international clients and projects, especially in the regulated sectors. As a centre of international excellence, we have what to offer to business and our state, which is increasingly moving into international projects. I believe we will also bring a progressive approach to strategic projects developed in other countries, combining the interests of several countries”, says Rolandas Valiūnas, Managing Partner of Ellex in Lithuania.

Šarūnas will be the 25th partner of the law firm Ellex Valiunas in Lithuania and the 50th partner of Ellex in the entire Baltic region.

He has specialised in competition law for 28 years. In addition to his work at the firm, the new partner will continue his long-standing academic career at Vilnius University Faculty of Law.

21 specialized lawyers work in the Competition and State Aid practices of the law firm in the Baltic States.

Ellex Valiunas is part of Ellex, the largest and leading circle of business law firms in the Baltics. With over 100 lawyers in Lithuania and in the entire Baltics, it unties over 250, including 50 partners. Together with business support, the circle has almost 300 employees in the three countries.
