Rask Attorneys at Law has promoted Villy Lopman, Rask's Head of Tax and Constitutional Law, and Timo Kullerkupp, Head of Tech, Finance and Aviation, to Partner.
Both new partners graduated from the University of Tartu. Lopman came to Rask from Ellex in 2013, while Kullerkupp joined after an eight-year stint at Njord Law Firm.
“The firm has grown substantially over its right years and reached the Top 10 of Estonian law firms in terms of both turnover and number of lawyers," commented co-Founding Partner Ramon Rask. "Ambition has not reduced but grown over time. Nominating new partners is therefore an unavoidable step. It is also a very pleasant one as the new partners, Timo and Villy have grown from within the team and their DNA matches the one of founding partners and the whole team.”
“In addition to a common understanding of key values," added co-Founding Partner Tarmo Peterson. "It is also important that the new partners are top of their game in Estonia: Villy Lopman’s knowledge and experience in tax and administrative proceedings are of great value to the firm. Same goes for Timo and his role in heading the tech and aviation working groups in the firm as well as his experience in advising international transactions."
"Very proud," commented Kullerkupp. "The trust given and responsibilities assumed for this great team of experts – both are a big honor. The rapid organic growth of the firm around a stable and integrated team core, being in contrast with the chaos otherwise seen in the sector, is a key value creator both to the firm and its exceptional client list.”
