Justinas Jarusevicius and Rimantas Daujotas have been promoted to Partner at Motieka & Audzevicius in Vilnius.
According to Motieka & Audzevicius, “the new partners have achieved crucial victories in complex international disputes, and both are unique in terms of their work and academic development."
“Obviously, together with our new partners, we are also growing as a law firm,” said Partner Ramunas Audzevicius.
Jarusevicius, who joined the the firm's litigation team in 2008, graduated from Vilniaus University, Kings College in London, and the Harvard Law School. He joined Motieka & Audzevicius in 2008 and has been with the firm since, with a two-year break during his studies in the USA. According to Motieka & Audzevicius, he is currently “the only New York attorney licensed in the Baltics [to have obtained] a Master‘s degree at Harvard Law School.”
Daujotas has a BA in Law from the Mykolo Romerio University in Vilnius, an LLM from the University of Edinburgh, a JD from Vilniaus University, and a Ph.D. from the Queen Mary University. He has been with Motieka & Audzevicius since 2011.
According to Jarusevicius, the increase in the number of dispute resolution partners will allow them to “share responsibilities, increase visibility, and encourage the team to deal with even more complex cases both in Lithuania and abroad.” Daujotas added that the “long-term goal of the firm‘s dispute resolution team is to be the first choice in the event of a complex legal dispute,” especially with “business litigation continuously becoming more complex.”
