Giedrius Kolesnikovas and Rokas Jankus are always the team which guides us through complex transactions. They have shown us time after time that it is not always necessary to have a large team to deliver the best quality within the shortest possible time limits. They are cost-efficient and conduct hard (yet reasonable) negotiations with counterparties. They also ensure that unnecessary stages of acquisitions are skipped and focus on the substance.
