Liga Merwin appointed as managing partner of Ellex Klavins

Partner Liga Merwin has been elected to a 4 year term as the managing partner of Ellex Klavins beginning from 15 April 2018. This change reflects the firm’s constant forward-thinking approach, to meet new challenges in the market with constantly evolving strong and progressive management. This development will strengthen and extend our position as one of the leading and most experienced law firms in Latvia.
Liga has been working at the firm since 2000 and currently leads the Industry & Regulatory practice of Ellex Klavins. She is widely recognised locally and internationally as one of the leading experts in competition law in the region and is also well-known for her energetic leadership and strong management skills.
The previous Riga managing partner Filips Kļaviņš will resume a more active role working directly with client project management and transactions.  In addition to her new position, Liga will continue heading the EU & Competition practice and will remain as the key contact for competition related matters.
Filips comments: “I am certain that Liga is the most suitable person to assume this position since she has been with the firm for many years and fully embodies our core values, culture and vision. She garners high respect within our firm, among our clients, and in the market. I am excited to be focusing more on client matters now and will be gratified to see what the upcoming changes will bring to the firm, to our staff, and most importantly, to the clients that we serve.”
Līga adds: “I have always been very proud to be a part of Ellex Klavins and I am very grateful to my team for giving me this opportunity to tackle new challenges and to continue working even more hands-on for the improvement of our services and to continue to build an even better and stronger law firm.”
