Chambers Europe 2021 recognized Motieka & Audzevičius among the best Lithuanian law firms in the fields of Dispute Resolution, Corporate/Commercial and Competition/Antitrust.

Sources appreciate our Dispute Resolution team for “solution-oriented and businesslike approach.” Another interviewee praises the firm, stating that the lawyers “really understand the facts and the legal problems of the client quickly and offer pragmatic and legally sound advice; they realised what we would need and were able to provide options to reach that goal”.

In a Band 1 ranked Ramūnas Audzevičius is a highly regarded practitioner acting for clients on both commercial disputes and international arbitration proceedings. A client describes him as “an excellent negotiator and strategist”.

Jovitas Elzbergas, who handles disputes especially within real estate and construction as well as the public procurement sector, is also ranked among the top dispute resolution lawyers in Lithuania.

Sources describe Albertas Šekštelo as hard-working and responsible lawyer.

 

Clients appreciate the firm’s Corporate and M&A team focused attitude, saying: “They go straight to the solving of problems, no needless talk or discussions. What makes them stand out for me is that I can fully trust that problems will be solved and it will be done in a timely manner. I do not need to follow up”.

The head of the group Giedrius Kolesnikovas advises clients on a wide range of transactional and corporate mandates. Sources say that he has “a hands-on approach” to deals, adding that in negotiations “he’s respectful towards other parties but also provides firm arguments”.

 

Our Competition law practice group rises into the rankings for its solid reputation for competition work, including both transactional and contentious matters. Advises on a range of merger clearances, cartel investigations, state aid and private enforcement cases.

A client admires the team’s ability to “always bring a strategy that is effective in a legal and business perspective”.
