Sander Karson has become the Managing Partner of TGS Baltic in Estonia and former Fort Legal Partner Kirsti Pent has joined the firm as Head of Banking & Finance.

Karson replaces Martin Tamme as Managing Partner, as Tamme, after six years in that role, has stepped down to focus on developing the firm's Real Estate & Construction practice.

"As a true full-service law firm, with strong market position, the firm will remain as a strategic partner for its present and future client able to solve most complex legal issues and manage challenging projects in all areas in the legal environment which is becoming more and more complex."

Karson, who joined TGS Baltic legacy firm Varul in 2013, has been Co-Head of M&A with Partner Kadri Kallas. According to a TGS Baltic press release, "in recent years, Sander has [led] the largest M&A and financing transactions that TGS Baltics Estonia has been involved in, and he has advised both local and foreign investors on complex cross-border operations.:

TGS Baltic reports that Kirsti Pent "has 13 years of experience specializing in advising various financial institutions on regulatory matters, capital raising, and other financing transactions." According to the firm, "Kirsti is recognized as a leading expert in her field and renowned for her efficiency and ability to offer innovative solutions." 

“I am excited to expand my practice even further using the synergies created by other teams at TGS Baltic," said Pent, who brings Senior Associate Olger Kaelep with her from Fort Legal.
