Recognition

International, regional, and local clients rely on Motieka & Audzevicius’s Corporate and M&A team for assistance with mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, merger control, taxation, venture-capital, private-equity, and other important business-law matters.

We are valued for our proactivity, swiftness, accessibility, and individualized attention, and for our ability to find creative solutions during negotiations and provide simple advice on complex processes.

We never lower the quality of our services and we work hard to create long-term relationships with our clients. As a result, many large and widely respected enterprises come back to us every time important questions arise and when their businesses are in critical need of legal assistance.

Our lawyers have extensive experience working with businesses in various sectors, and in providing the most appropriate solutions to the situation at hand – never overpromising or under-delivering.

Four reasons to choose us:

  • A Specialized Team. Our experts know every inch of the transaction process. Motieka & Audzevicius’s team consists of specialists in different areas of corporate law, allowing us to implement any project.
  • Expert in Complex Transactions. In the last few years alone, our team has worked on a number of the most important domestic and international transactions, including being the lead lawyers of Linas Agro Group in its acquisition of shares in Kauno Grūdai, advising the majority shareholder of Vilniaus prekyba on its buy-out of shares of a minority shareholder, representing in the investments into Hostinger, and representing the founders as well as leading the sale of Mailerlite.
  • International Recognition. For many years the knowledge and experience of our transactional team as a whole, and its individual members, have been recognised by international ranking services such as Legal 500, Chambers and Partners, CEE Legal Matters, and Mergermarket.
  • Top-Level Education. Our team encourages globalisation and constantly seeks inspiration and knowledge from the world’s top universities. Lawyers on the team have graduated from Duke University, the Columbia Business School, the London Business School, Royal College (London), the University of London, and many other widely recognized institutions of higher learning. Our status as the number-one choice of the largest and most widely recognised domestic and international clients inspires us to improve and gives us an experience-based advantage in providing legal services.

We know our clients’ business and we identify with their vision and goals. This allows us to create the most convenient transaction architecture and represent them effectively in negotiations. Instead of quick and basic solutions, we offer specific long-term solutions that can withstand future challenges.

Our services:

  • Project Administration. We create added value beyond the basic provision of legal services. We manage projects from their very first steps and accompany our clients throughout each step of a project to secure their interests, including by communicating on their behalf with third parties, external advisors, state institutions, and other businesses.
  • Business Consulting. The most important thing for us is to create value for our clients. We first aim to understand our clients’ needs and determine the most effective way to achieve their goals. We play chess while others play checkers.
  • Execution of Transactions. We provide all necessary legal services in transactions, including preparing the structure of the deal, advising on tax issues, participating in negotiations, performing legal due diligence, and preparing transaction documentation. We hear, understand, assess, and achieve our clients’ expectations. Our goal is to foresee potential risks, and to understand what is required and what is not to successfully implement the transaction.
  • Joint Activities. We provide comprehensive legal assistance in negotiating, structuring, and concluding joint ventures.
  • Merger Control. We are different from other legal-service providers in the merger-control market, as merger notifications with the Competition Council and its subsequent processes are handled by our Transactions team instead of by lawyers specializing in the regulatory sector, which allows us to take advantage of our unique understanding of our client’s business, the specifics of transactions, and the importance of obtaining merger clearance. Our many years of high-level experience gives us the unique ability to assess as early as possible whether a specific transaction will require merger clearance from the Competition Council, how long the process will take, and what the relevant risks are likely to be.
  • Private-Equity Investments. We represent investors, investment funds, lenders, and management companies at all stages of private-equity investment, including negotiation, transaction structuring, legal due diligence, and preparation of investment documentation, ensuring the successful completion of the investment.
  • Venture-Capital Investments. We regularly assist with the most important venture-capital investments in the market. We offer service packages for venture-capital investors and entrepreneurs starting new businesses and start-ups seeking to attract external venture capital. We prepare the investment structures and necessary shareholders’ agreements, provide advice on the implementation and use of investments and employee options, and perform legal due diligence.
  • Capital Markets. We regularly advise clients on local and cross-border capital-accumulation transactions. We assist issuers, financiers, consultants, and investors on issues related to the preparation and implementation of initial public securities, debts, and official offers.
  • General Commercial Advice. We help clients with a variety of commercial transactions, regardless of their size or importance. We advise on complex and day-to-day issues related to corporate law and on the conclusion of national and international agreements, as well as evaluating whether those agreements comply with the requirements of competition law and working to minimize legal risks during these processes.
  • Tax Strategies. Tax structuring is a key step in almost every transaction and investment, and our skill in the field allows us to create added value and reduce our clients’ financial risk.
  • Modern Business. We keep pace with today’s trends and with legal developments relevant to start-up businesses. Our lawyers are well-versed in the cryptocurrency, NFT, and meta-universe fields – in fact, many of them invest in them personally, and are thus always looking for new opportunities to create added value for themselves and their clients.
