Former Ellex Raidla Senior Partner Juri Raidla has stepped down from his position on January 1, 2023, to continue as a Counsel with the firm.
Raidla, who is the founder of Ellex in Estonia, specializes in energy, infrastructure, transport, and constitutional and administrative law. Raidla was the first Minister of Justice of the re-independent Estonia from 1990 to 1992, as well as Chairman of the Constitutional Assembly.
"Shortly before Ellex in Estonia was founded and launched, Raidla worked as the first Executive Director of the then newly established Estonian Banking Association," Ellex informed. "Since November 25, 2009, Juri has been working on state reform on a pro bono basis. Among his pro bono activities, his work as Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Tartu also deserves to be mentioned."
