Testimonials

‘Ellex’s competition team members are the artists in their field. They know well local and on EU level legal rules, but most importantly, they always deep-dive into the essence of the business and find arguments absolutely creative – beyond any existing practise. Truly innovators. ’

‘Expertise level first of all, followed by extra fluent communication and ability to deconstruct even more complex scenarios into simple stories.’

‘I have mentioned Marius Juonys who is exceptional both as a competition lawyer as well as a person who is kind and caring. Although in such a difficult field of law he explains issues in simple terms, which makes him very reliable and close to everyday matters of the Company. I would also like to mention Karolis Kacerauskas who is a wonderful specialist in state aid issues and public procurement.’

‘I think that reputation and practical experience are the most relevant criteria for selecting competition lawyer. Since Lithuania is a small market, professional in-house lawyers know who is who on the market. Ellex has the best reputation, since they were probably the first law firm who started specializing in competition area many years ago. Furthermore, it is also known in the market that they successfully defended their clients in the largest competition cases. 

‘My primary contact for competition-related matters is Marius Juonys, who is Ellex competition partner. He is probably one of the best competition lawyers in Lithuania and has a reputation of winning hard cases. As for myself, I appreciate his experience and knowledge of competition law. In most of the situations, he is able to provide explicit and practical advice and support his conclusions with reference to specific situations he has encountered during his years of practice.’
