TGS Baltic has appointed Estonian Partners Kadri Kallas and Leonid Tolstov, Latvian Managing Partner Ivars Grunte and Partner Andra Rubene, and Lithuanian Executive Partner Marius Matonis to the firm's board and has elected Lithuania Managing Partner Vilius Bernatonis as Chair of the Board.

Vilius takes the role of Chair from Estonian counterpart Martin Tamme, who headed the Board since 2018.

TGS Baltic describes Vilius Bernatonis as "an internationally recognized expert with over 20 years of legal experience mainly in the Energy and Finance sectors, who also holds a Global Executive MBA from IESE, the leading business school worldwide according to the Financial Times." According to the firm, "the newly appointed Chair elected for a two-year mandate says his focus will rely on two main areas: regional integration and reinforcement of a business-oriented approach."

"The ability to provide comprehensive legal services in all Baltic countries is a benefit for a client allowing to receive all types of legal services from one hand, to save money and time as well as to better manage risks," said Bernatonis. "However, to ensure the highest possible quality of services, it is essential to enable a sharing culture within the organization, allowing an exchange of best legal practices, markets insights, and client feedback. Another priority of ours is providing highly business-centric services. The most innovative solutions we have come up with over the past years, as well as the key victories of our clients, are related precisely to that unconventional approach going beyond the legal, thus this is definitely the direction to go."
