Dispute settlement (incl. arbitration)

Our lawyers have long-term and diverse experience in settling disputes in Estonia and abroad and we have attained a solid reputation in both regions in that regard. We pursue civil, administrative, arbitration and economic crime cases.

Our firm has the longest experience in Estonia in dispute settlement and arbitration. Simon Levin practised in our firm and enriched the knowledge and experience of our attorneys. 

The law firm’s partner Paul Keres is probably the best-known and most renowned attorney-at-law of the younger generation in Estonia. Attorney-at-law Paul Keres has successfully defended clients’ rights not only in court but also in domestic and foreign arbitration tribunals.

Our attorneys have published numerous legal theory articles in Estonia and abroad. 

Law firms priority is to defend our clients in every way and to that end we take all measures that are not prohibited by law. Our attorneys have participated in complex and fundamental court and arbitration cases involving claims of several dozens of millions of euros. Regardless of the voluminousness or complexity of the case, we do our best in representing our clients’ interests.

We prefer to communicated with our clients in a friendly and informal manner and are readily available. Sometimes it is necessary to prefer compromise and reconciliation proceedings and we also have long-term experience in these types of proceedings.
