Recently published Chambers FinTech 2022 guide has ranked Ellex as a Band 1 law firm in Estonia. In addition, three Ellex fintech experts – Antti Perli and Marko Kairjak from Estonia, and Ieva Dosinaitė from Lithuania have been ranked individually.
What clients said:
Antti Perli specialises in representing start-up businesses, private equity, and venture capital investors, including start-ups and investors in the FinTech industry. One client says Perli is an “absolutely top talent,” explaining that he is “fast, precise, and always responsive,” and adding that “I have worked with very many law firms in my past and working with Antti Perli has been extraordinary.”
Marko Kairjak is a financial regulatory specialist in Ellex Raidla’s banking team, and regularly advises FinTech businesses on regulatory matters. “I think Marko is one of the best, if not the best FinTech adviser in Estonia,” says one interviewee; “I have a big appreciation for his expertise.” This source adds that “Kairjak really knows the industry, regulations, generally European regulations and in particular the regulations in the Baltic states. With issues relating to the potential difference between legislation in different jurisdictions, he knows the subjects and I know he’ll respond in a timely manner. I can expect that a question will be answered fully.”
Ieva Dosinaitė is a partner in the banking and finance team. She is particularly adept in representing clients through complex financing negotiations. Dosinaitė is “my absolute go-to person for the Baltic region,” says an international interviewee, who praises her as “practical, very well connected in her sector locally, and very responsive.” This source says that, in Lithuania, “she is my first recommendation every time.”
