Career

As an attorney-at-law and senior associate with the firm’s Dispute Resolution & Risk Management, and Competition & Regulatory teams, Ieva Rimavičienė’ primary focus is Shareholders’ and Corporate disputes. She has significant experience in arbitration and criminal law.

Wide ranging experience in disputes. Ieva has considerable experience successfully advising local and international clients in a wide range of disputes in both court and arbitration proceedings, as well as negotiations and the pre-trial stage.

Landmark cases. One of the most significant projects Ieva has been involved in is an ongoing dispute where she represents both Lithuanian and foreign clients against one of the largest retail chains in Lithuania. The dispute value amounts to almost EUR 300 million.

Ieva also successfully represented the client in a dispute regarding breach of contractual guarantees after selling 100% of the company’s shares. The dispute was rather complex, requiring expertise in procedural matters as well as knowledge in the construction, transportation and public procurement fields.

Expert in the arbitration field. Ieva is on the list of arbitrators at Vilnius Court of Commercial Arbitration (VCCA), the best known and most reputable arbitration institution in Lithuania and among the Baltic States. She gained experience in the arbitration field both internally while working at the VCCA and externally while representing international and national clients in arbitration proceedings. Ieva’ interest and passion for arbitration started in the early years of university and is still very much alive.

Legal due diligence in complex transactions. Ieva performed legal due diligence in a major M&A transaction resulting in the merger of Nordea and DNB banks and creation of new banking group Luminor.
