Karl Juhan Paadam has been appointed Managing Partner of PwC Legal in Central and Eastern Europe, responsible for coordinating the network’s activity in seventeen European countries.
In addition to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, as of the beginning of May Paadam’s area of responsibility includes the markets in the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Slovakia, Croatia, Bosnia, Serbia, Albania, Macedonia, Kosovo, and Montenegro.
PwC Legal Global’s Senior Partner Heinz-Klaus Kroppen claims that under Paadam, PwC Legal has risen to be among the leading law offices in the Baltic States. “On behalf of the PwC Legal network, we are very glad that our Central and Eastern European law offices will have an outstanding leader in Paadam,” Kroppen added.
Paadam says that PwC Legal will continue to expand vigorously in the entire region. “The quick growth of PwC Legal confirms we have the right business model — the network’s specialists from various areas of business consulting serve the needs of a single client at the same time, if necessary. Owing to its global reach, PwC Legal is a trendsetter, dictated mostly by the demands of our transnational clients,” says Paadam.
In recent years, PwC Legal has grown from 2000 to 3,500 legal advisers world-wide. In April, thirteen lawyers from Glimstedt joined Paadam in the Estonian office of PwC Legal.
