Motieka & Audzevičius celebrates the New Year with more partners in it. From 1 January 2022, attorneys Rokas Jankus and Edvinas Lenkauskas joined the team of partners. From now on, the firm has 8 partners.
R. Jankus has been working in the corporate law practice group since 2012. He currently leads the deals team and advises on issues of mergers and acquisitions, private equity and venture capital investments. R. Jankus was one of the leaders in significant recent deals, such as Linas Agro Group in acquiring Kauno Grūdai; Hostinger in attracting investors from Germany; Avia Solutions Group in acquiring Siemens Arena (now Avia Solutions Group Arena); Turing College in becoming the first Lithuanian start-up to attract investment from the prestigious Silicon Valley accelerator Y Combinator, and others. For several years now, the international rating company Legal 500 has rated R. Jankus as a Rising Star in the areas of mergers and acquisitions and corporate law in the Lithuanian market.
“Such career growth gives additional motivation to continue further pursuing ambitious goals in a competitive legal services market. The deals team has set itself the task of further contributing to the strengthening of the start-up ecosystem and thus creating new success stories. Private equity and venture capital investments, along with traditional mergers and acquisitions, will continue to be key areas of our team. We are a young team with a lot of experience. We will continue to strive to use the best practices in the provision of legal services and global trends to become the first choice of our clients,” said R. Jankus about his further activities.
E. Lenkauskas started working in the firm in 2009. He has dedicated his entire professional career to the tax law specialty and is currently one of the leaders of the tax law practice group. Consistently advancing his career, Edvinas has gained extensive experience and achieved significant victories in extremely difficult tax disputes not only at the national level but also before the Court of Justice of the European Union. Deep knowledge of industries and great attention to detail allow attorney E. Lenkauskas to provide top-level tax advice. Edvinas has been trusted by big business and private clients for many years.
“I am pleased with the assessment and the opportunity to become a partner in one of the leading law firms in Lithuania, which has a long history and clear values. Together with the tax law practice group, we will continue to successfully represent clients in tax disputes and negotiations and ensure the maximum comfort and the feeling of safety during complex tax consultations”, added E. Lenkauskas.
“This is a message that loyalty is still in vogue. We are especially pleased that Edvinas and Rokas started their professional career in our law firm while still law students, and today they have grown up to become partners”, said Ramūnas Audzevičius, partner of Motieka & Audzevičius. “We will continue growing our team of partners in the future. In this way, not only do we aim to motivate employees, but of course, we strengthen the front lines and increase the speed of the business. 2021 was especially successful for our firm financially, so with a growing team, we intend to achieve even higher results.”
