History

Mr Gints Vilgerts, a former managing partner of a leading regional law firm, established our firm in 2008. Soon Mrs Debora Pavila, Mrs Julija Jerneva and Mr Edgars Koskins, market leaders in competition and tax law, joined and expanded the firm’s core practices. The core partner team fully formed when Mrs Ineta Krodere, the leading IPR attorney, joined.
 
The firm launched the office in Minsk, Belarus in 2011. Today it boasts two partners - Mr Roman Shpakovsky and Mrs Eugenia Urodnich and staff.
 
In February 2015 Dr iur Raimundas Moisejevas, an attorney at law with focus on competition and litigation, joined VILGERTS to start the office in Vilnius, Lithuania.
 
In May 2015 our law firm was joined by Mr Kaido Loor who has been a long-standing partner at Estonia’s largest law firm. Kaido is top quality expert in corporate, real estate, construction and tax. In Estonia, our law firm will operate as Advokaadibüroo Vilgerts Loor. We aim to distinguish ourselves as the outstanding law firm on Estonian market and as a platform for cross-border transactions from Estonia and Finland to Latvia and further south.
