Career

A double specialization in both dispute resolution and employment law enables Jurgita Karvelė to successfully consult and represent clients in employment disputes. These provide an opportunity for extensive direct communication with company representatives, managers and employers, which in turn promotes a true understanding of clients’ needs.

Advice on new Labour Code. Jurgita contributed to the formation of new judicial practice. After the new Labour Code came into force in Lithuania in 2017, Sorainen Employment team was among the first to successfully represent clients in cases related to redundancy on newly established grounds as well as such matters as sexual harassment and other forms of discrimination.

Liability cases. Jurgita has represented clients in landmark cases on the civil liability of management board members, both of government organisations and of private companies.

Work with family offices. Advising family offices constitutes a substantial part of her work. Inspired by the possibility to help individuals, she assists family businesses in finding optimal business management possibilities.

Professional mediation. As a professional mediator Jurgita believes that a peaceful settlement of legal disputes best meets the client’s interests.
