On May 7, 2020, CEE Legal Matters reported that Sorainen had represented Tallinna Linnatranspordi Aktsiaselts, a company fully owned by the City of Tallinn, in its purchase of compressed gas for natural gas-powered buses. We spoke with Deniss Borodits, Chairman of the Board at Tallinna Linnatranspordi, to learn more about the deal.

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2019 CEE Deal of the Year Award winners – the most important, complicated, significant, and valuable deals across Central and Eastern Europe.

Cobalt advised Fortumo and Ellex Raidla advised the company's founders and sahreholders Mobi Solutions, Rain Rannu and Veljo Otsason on the sale of Fortumo to global mobile payments platform Boku. Sorainen advised Boku on the deal, which was valued at approximately USD 45 million.

Triniti has successfully persuaded the Tallinn Circuit Court of Appeal to uphold the judgment of the District Court in a dispute between Estonian individual Katrin Lust and prominent chiropractor and entertainer Allan Gary Oolo involving an episode of the Estonian TV show Kuuuurija.

Acting on behalf of Erial Ehitus OU, TGS Baltic has successfully persuaded the Supreme Court of Estonia to overrule lower courts' rulings that the company's name could not be registered because the word “construction” (Ehitus, in Estonian) in its name was protected as a trademark.

Fort's Estonia office has advised AS LHV Pank, a subsidiary of AS LHV Group, on its acquisition of Danske Bank’s business unit operating the Estonian corporate and public sector credits, which at the end of April amounted to approximately EUR 312 million.
