Lauras Butkevicius has joined Ellex’s Lithuanian office as a Partner.
According to Ellex, Butkevicius, a competition law expert, has over 20 years of experience in “trade, pharma, TMT, and other sectors on various competition and state regulatory issues.”
Previously, Butkevicius spent over a year as a Partner with APB EY Law and, earlier, over four and a half years with TGS Baltic. From 2012-2017 he was a Name Partner at Civilka Butkevicius Svedas and, prior to that, had spent almost five years with Sorainen. Earlier still, he spent four and a half years with Cobalt, after beginning his career with a two-year stint in Swedbank Lithuania, in 2001.
“The decision to join the firm was prompted by the fact that Ellex Valiunas is a law firm with the highest ethical standards in Lithuania and a market leader with exceptional specializations in legal practices. Naturally, this ensures the highest quality of services and client satisfaction,” Butkevicius commented. “I am sure that we will be a tandem of exceptional experience and expertise, being able not only to provide the highest quality services to clients but also to be a special place for the professional growth and development of team members.”
“With Lauras joining the team, we will ensure the best center of excellence in competition law not only in Lithuania but also in the market of all Baltic countries,” Managing Partner Rolandas Valiunas added.
