Sorainen has advised a working group of the Tallinn City government on the development of an anti-corruption strategy for the city.
The working group, which was established by Tallinn City and led by office head Tiit Sepp, consists of internal audit service specialists and representatives of the City’s enterprise and property departments. The group is tasked with drafting an anti-corruption strategy plan and submitting it to the Tallinn City government by December of this year.
“Addressing the consequences and processing criminal offenses is not enough to combat corruption in local government," said Sorainen Counsel Norman Aas. "Local authorities themselves must take action to minimize the risk of corruption and establish an ethical workplace culture. Taxpayers have the right to believe that local authorities take all measures within their power to prevent corruption and ensure lawful administration. Fighting corruption fosters economic freedom and helps businesses to prosper."
The Sorainen team consisted of Partner Carri Ginter, Counsel Norman Aas, and Associate Merika Nimmo.
