The national offices that formerly comprised the pan-Baltic network of Vilgerts have opted to split and continue as independent firms in Belarus, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania.
Corporate partner Gints Vilgerts announced the management of Vilgerts had decided to end the pan-Baltic alliance to focus on the Latvian market, where its brand is established.
As a result of the break-up, the alliance's former Belarus office has been renamed Legaltax but will continue to be led by Roman Shpakovsky. The Estonian office has become Loor, led by Kaido Loor. The former Lithuanian staff of Vilgerts, including M&A lawyer Jūratė Kūgytė, have also left the alliance.
