Former Ellex Valiunas Senior Associate Donata Montvydaite has left that prominent Lithuanian firm to become Group General Counsel at the Eastnine AB real estate investor.

Eastnine, known until May 2017 as East Capital Explorer, is a Swedish investment company founded in 2007 focusing on commercial real estate in the Baltic capitals. Its operations consist of three segments: Real Estate Direct, Real Estate Funds, and Other Holdings, and according to the Eastnine website, "the aim is to transform into a pure real estate company by the end of 2020." Eastnine is listed on Nasdaq Stockholm, Mid Cap.

Montvydaite began her career as a lawyer as a Junior Associate in 2013 with Ellex (at the time, in Lithuania, doing business as LAWIN), after graduating from Vilnius University. According to her, "for over 5 years I have worked at Ellex with real estate investment and transactions, mostly cross-border deals with international counter-parties. I am honored to be appointed as GC for Eastnine to share my experience in real estate investment business from the legal side. Eastnine is one of the largest investors into Baltic commercial real estate. Eastnine aims to take leading positions in ownership of A class commercial properties in prime locations in Vilnius, Riga, and Tallinn and I will be pleased being part of it."
