Former Mogo Finance Head of Legal Kristine Mora has joined Vilgerts in Latvia to lead the firm’s FinTech and Finance Law practice groups.
According to Vilgerts, Mora has extensive experience representing FinTech, leasing, bank, credit, and electronic money institutions. She began her career in 2008 at Bigbank, where she stayed for nearly three years. She joined SEB Banka Latvia in 2011 and moved to ActusQ in 2013. Mora spent another year and a half at Ergo Latvia before joining Mogo Finance in 2015, where she stayed for another five and a half years. Mora obtained her Bachelor of Laws in 2010 and her Master of Laws in 2012 at the Riga Stradins University.
English lawyer Charles Clarke has also joined the Vilgerts team as Expert Counsel on EU Competition Law.
“We are looking forward to the development of the FinTech sector in Latvia and across the Baltics," commented Gints Vilgerts, Managing Partner at Vilgerts. "With Kristine Mora joining, we anticipate much more involvement here. Charles has been a great asset in competition and public procurement matters for the firm. With his assistance, we would like to grow a closer bond with our international clients."
