The Derling law firm in Estonia and Primus, Attorneys at Law, in Lithuania and Latvia have established a new pan-Baltic alliance, which operates in four offices across the three Baltic countries as Derling Primus in Estonia and Primus Derling in Latvia and Lithuania.

“The main goal of this move is to improve legal services for our clients and create more added value by providing professional legal services in all three Baltic countries,” said Robert Juodka, Managing Partner at Primus Derling in Lithuania. “Derling is the best choice in Estonia.”

“Since its launch in April 2016, Derling has made the fastest organic growth in the Estonian legal market,” said Hannes Vallikivi, Managing Partner at Derling Primus in Estonia. “While good times are continuing and our region takes new heights in attracting foreign investments, it is very important to have strong allies in our closest neighboring countries.”

Derling, which has offices in both Tallinn and Tartu, has eight partners among its 25 lawyers. The firm is managed by Hannes Vallikivi, who is also the President of the Estonian Bar Association.

On September 21, 2018, CEE Legal Matters reported that the Lithuanian and Latvia members of Derling's previous pan-Baltic alliance had launched the new Levin alliance, replacing Derling with Estonian law firm Glikman Alvin.
