Former Lithuanian Competition Council Chairman Sarunas Keserauskas has returned to Ellex Valiunas as a Partner, after spending 12 years as the head of the competition watchdog.
According to Ellex, Keserauskas will “develop the practice of Competition law and other areas of business supervision.”
Before rejoining Ellex, Keserauskas spent 12 years with the Lithuanian Competition Council, starting in 2011, and almost two years more as a Senior Legal Adviser with the Office of Fair Trading, between 2009 and 2011. He began his career with Ellex legacy law firm Lideika, Petrauskas, Valiunas, and Partners – Lawin, in 1995. He started as an Assistant Lawyer, was promoted to Associate Lawyer in 1998, and an Adviser in 2006, and spent 14 years with the firm before departing in 2009.
“Joining the law firm where I started my legal career, I will bring with me the experience I have gained working for competition authorities in Lithuania and the United Kingdom, as well as participating in the activities of international organizations and implementing international projects,” Keserauskas commented. “I will share this experience with Ellex's Competition practice as it strives to establish itself as an internationally recognized center of excellence.”
