Career

Vaiva Mašidlauskienė is based in Brussels, where she serves as the firm’s attaché. Keeping a focus on three areas of expertise complementing each other – transport law, commercial contracts and trade – allows her to address clients’ business needs from the legal standpoint. Regardless of whether you need assistance in an aircraft lease transaction, regulatory overview of maritime claims, or a commercial contract designed to safeguard your interests in daily commercial transactions, she is here to help.

Focus on transport law. Transport law is Vaiva’s main specialisation, covering aviation, rail, roads, maritime and inland waterways. She is qualified to consult on the regulation and operation of all modes of transport and is recognised by The Legal 500 as a next-generation lawyer in the field of shipping and transport. An academic background in transport law combined with international practice at the Directorate-General for Mobility and Transport of the European Commission (DG MOVE) allows her to give quality advice on national, international and EU law, from both the business and consumer rights protection aspects.

Commercial contracts. Vaiva assists clients in drafting commercial contracts and advise on compliance matters related to complex commercial transactions involving logistics.

Trade regulation issues. Closely related to commercial contracts, trade regulation is another field Vaiva regularly work in, consulting clients operating in the transportation, food, agriculture and trade industries on diverse issues concerning wholesale and retail, warehousing and logistics. She was also involved as a national expert in a recent study conducted by the European Commission researching operational restrictions in the retail sector in the EU and Norway.
