Baltic and International collaboration

WIDEN – the Baltic law firm

WIDEN is a full service Baltic law firm of more than 100 legal professionals with offices in all Baltic capitals. In our practice, we focus on quality and client experience. 

Why is the Baltic perspective relevant?

For business purposes, many of our international clients view the Baltic region as a single territory. In practice, the Baltics – Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania – are three separate sovereign states of unique cultures and legal systems. This means a solution effective in one Baltic country may not necessarily be feasible across the entire region. So, if you wish to operate in all Baltic markets at once, you might need different legal solutions in parallel for the three different jurisdictions. 

The Baltic service-level

If you wish to develop and operate your business in all Baltic countries, then your business requires that legal questions are solved across the Baltics. In such a case, you need a legal partner like WIDEN, who would be capable and experienced in advising and working out solutions for your needs in all of the three unique local jurisdictions.

Our team at WIDEN has years of experience in advising international clients with entering the Baltic market, supporting them in their daily legal matters as well as complex business development initiatives from mergers & acquisitions, regulatory analyses to complex dispute resolutions and competition law.

If you require a service-level where you see the Baltics as a single business territory and need a partner with a single Baltic team that is able to advise you in all three unique jurisdictions of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, then we welcome you to work with us!
