Anglo-American Desk

More than 50 per cent of the clients of our law firm are international clients - multinational companies, foreign investors, individuals doing business in or through Lithuania. English is our first foreign business language.

Some of our lawyers have both English law degree (e.g. from the University of Cambridge) and experience of working for international law firms. We understand the differences between common law and continental law, and are able to explain the risks when parties agree that their contractual arrangements are governed by the English laws.  Where necessary, we guide our clients who conclude contracts in English, choose English law as the governing law and liaise in getting the English law advice on specific issues. Also, we possess vast experience dealing with top notch English and American law firms while negotiating contractual documentation on behalf of our local clients.  

Finally, we work as local Lithuanian legal advisors in managing complex international disputes covering more than one jurisdiction and other high-profile international cases before the courts of England. We assist in collecting evidence and present expertise on various aspects of Lithuanian law.
