Former Sorainen lawyer Kadri Kallas has joined Varul as an Associate Partner.
Kadri specializes in corporate/M&A, private equity, and venture capital. According to Varul, "she has advised strategic investors, private equity funds and companies included in their portfolios, as well as venture investors and growth companies on strategic investments, joint ventures, mergers, acquisitions and demergers, and provided general business advice. In addition to an eight-year career at Sorainen, she also worked for two and a half years in the London office of the US-based Vinson & Elkins law firm.
According to Varul Managing Partner Martin Tamme, there is a symbolic significance to Kadri joining the firm. "Varul has historically been regarded as a reputable law firm specializing in litigation, although we are equally competent in advising on corporate law matters and transactions. Our recruitment of Kadri bears witness to an increase in the importance of this area – her experience will create added value for both our clients and our team."
