As leader of a team operating in a wide variety of legal fields such as competition and antitrust, state aid, EU law and institutions, regulated markets, government relations and pharma, partner Daivis Švirinas has the opportunity to work with a highly diverse group of legal experts who, in the opinion of firm’s clients and legal directories, are among the leading experts in their fields.

Business-oriented legal advisor. During his career as a lawyer Daivis has enjoyed a unique opportunity to analyse situations from four different angles: as an in-house lawyer, as a member of management bodies, as an academic and finally – as an attorney-at-law. This diverse background, in addition to experience as a managing partner of law firms, enables Daivis to step into the shoes of firm’s clients and provide not only legal assistance but also well-rounded business advice.

Passionate competition lawyer. Daivis has had a special interest in competition law since 1999. In 2003 he successfully defended his doctoral thesis in the field of vertical agreements. As a practicing lawyer Daivis has been involved in landmark antitrust cases as well as the most-debated merger projects.

Knowledge-thirsty person. Daivis’ eagerness to learn allows him to constantly improve his own professional expertise and encourage my team to do the same. From Daivis point of view, every meeting with a client, evolving around their needs and business peculiarities, offers a valuable learning opportunity.
