According to the firm, “Petkeviciene is a data protection law expert who started her career at Ellex Valiunas 14 years ago. She has made a significant contribution to the implementation of the GDPR in Lithuania” and also focuses on technologies and digital products law issues and the implementation of ESG projects. Petkeviciene holds a master’s degree in Law from Vilnius University.
According to the firm, Stancikaite is a real estate lawyer with “20 years of legal experience and has been a member of the Ellex Valiunas team for 15 years already.” She specializes in complex commercial real estate lease transactions. Stancikaite holds an LLB degree from Concordia International University and an LLM degree from Mykolas Romeris University.
“Professional career for lawyers, especially those working in top-tier law firms, is an obvious aspiration and goal,” Managing Partner Rolandas Valiunas said. “Of course, this goal would be unattainable without hard and successful work. Ellex, which is celebrating the 30th anniversary of its presence in the market this year, has always grown and fostered lawyers whose prospects of becoming partners are perceived very early. R. Armone, M. Petkeviciene, and D. Stancikaite are role models to all of us in the firm and to the whole community of lawyers.”
