Glimstedt has announced that, as of July 1st, 2016, its Public Procurement practice will be led by Associate Partner Mindaugas Jablonskis, taking over from Deividas Soloveicik, who is leaving the firm.
“Through strengthening our practice in the public procurement area and integrating our competence in the area of energy, infrastructure, and other fields of national legal regulation, we create new opportunities to synergize our client's businesses, which is vital in a competitive business environment and the growing needs of our clients,” says Egidijus Bernotas, Managing Partner of Glimstedt.
Bernotas continued on the subject of the practice’s new head, saying, “Mindaugas Jablonskis has an ability to put all legal matters in business perspective. We recommend Mindaugas Jablonskis as a person with a strong business orientation who provides crisp and clear legal advice. The public procurement rules establish a regime to facilitate competitive, transparent, and non-discriminatory purchasing and tendering procedures by public sector and utility bodies across the EU. The rules can be somewhat rigid and formal, creating uncertainties and imposing a degree of inflexibility which can frustrate the development of large-scale EU investments in Lithuania. Practical and commercially targeted advice is necessary in order to guide clients with confidence through this difficult area of the law."
Jablonskis will also continue to lead the Energy, Infrastructure & Regulatory law practice of Glimstedt.
