Tomas Davidonis, managing partner

Tomas Davidonis, managing partner of Law Firm Davidonis ir parneriai associated with UAB “Deloitte Lietuva” discusses how the firm is adapting to clients' changing needs.

1) What do you see as the main points that differentiate Deloitte Legal Lithuania from your competitors?

We have a presence globally, where our clients need us, with over 1,750 legal professionals in more than 75 countries. Our interdisciplinary approach to client service ensures we develop solutions that meet legal, as well as business, objectives. In collaboration with our Deloitte Lithuania colleagues, we can provide a one-stop-shop service, where clients benefit from a single point of contact for engagements that extend across borders. Our practice is well-known in a few niche areas including Corporate Reorganisations, Labour and Immigration Law and Tax Controversy.

2) Which practices in your member firm do you see growing in the next 12 months? What are the drivers behind that?

We expect to see continued demand for our services related to corporate reorganisations, immigration and forensic practices. We also foresee increasing demand for services related to competition law and in other regulated areas. Our experienced professionals are well-positioned to serve clients in these areas.

3) What is the main change you have made in your firm that will benefit clients?

We will continue cooperation with other Deloitte Legal practices in the network, including active participation in Deloitte Legal industry groups.

4) How is technology changing the way you interact with your clients and the services you can provide them?

Our website features original, substantive digital content such as the International Dismissal Survey, designed to educate our clients and offer Deloitte perspective on legal topics. The Deloitte tax@hand app is useful to those working in the tax space. In future, our strategy is to utilize interactive tools to present information and converse with clients.

5) Can you give us a practical example of how you helped a client add value to their business?

We have helped many clients reduce risk while adding value to their operations. Recently, we helped a client complete a cross-border merger that involved several jurisdictions. For this project, we managed the project, advised on a wide range of legal and tax issues, and assisted with implementation of the solution. As a result of the merger, the client benefited from tax optimised business reallocation and group holding system simplification. Over the last three years we have also helped a large number of clients through complex litigation in various areas, all of which we have won.

6) Are clients looking for stability and strategic direction from their law firms – where do you see the firm in three year's time?

Over the next three years we aim to attract and maintain top talent, to serve as trusted advisors for our existing and new clients, and to help our clients’ grow their businesses in sustainable ways. We will continue to invest in new and innovative services and technologies.
