CEE Attorneys Lithuania has opened an office in Riga, Latvia, and appointed Senior Associate Valery Komisarov as Real Estate and Construction Head in the country. Komisarov will also manage the Riga office, reporting to Managing Partner of CEE Attorneys Lithuania, Daina Senapediene, who will remain in Vilnius.
At the moment, the firm reports that its new Latvian office will focus primarily on the real estate, construction, and infrastructure sectors. However, Senapediene claims that "hiring more lawyers and expanding the scope of legal advisory services are in the near plans of CEE Attorneys in Latvia."
According to CEE Attorneys, "the opening of the office in Riga goes along with the strategic plan of CEE Attorneys to offer high standard legal services in all Central and Eastern European and Baltic countries under the one-stop shop principle. The next step planned would be getting established in Estonia."
Komisarov worked for over three years as a lawyer with the Riga-based KOM-Invest real estate before opening his own solo practice in the beginning of 2016. He has a Master’s degree in Civil Construction and Real Estate Management from Riga Technical University and a Master's of Laws degree from Latvia's Business University Turiba.
