  • 4 years’ professional legal experience
  • PhD studies at MRU Law School

I am an associate at WINT law firm, specializing in white-collar crime law. I began my legal practice working for the Lithuanian Police, the Prosecutor’s General Office and Vilnius District Prosecutor’s Office while still studying for my law degree. Before joining WINT, I was providing legal services regarding the conclusion of transactions and the resolution of related disputes.

I am fully committed to my work, which is why I try to improve my knowledge not only through my legal practice, but also by engaging in research activities – I am currently studying for a PhD at MRU Law School. I always rise to challenges both at work and in academic activities. I greatly appreciate the fact that clients who find themselves in extraordinary legal situations turn to WINT for advice, and that through this experience I am able to expand my skills. However, as my goal is to provide top-level legal services, I also enjoy dealing with extremely complex legal issues in my academic pursuits.

At present, I am working with the White-collar Crime Legal Practice Team of WINT, advising clients throughout criminal proceedings: from assistance in applying to law enforcement institutions to participating in hearings in all Lithuanian courts and recourse to the European Court of Human Rights and the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Lithuania.

I like to spend my free time with my family, enjoying nature or reading classical literature, which nourishes my soul and gives inspiration to my life.
