Practice head Žygimantas Stankevičius is uniquely qualified to represent financial institutions, having previously worked as head of legal at Luminor Bank.

Lithuania > Banking, finance and capital markets

TGS Baltic is a leading name for capital markets work, as is evidenced by it recently acting for Lithuania’s Ministry of Finance on its issuance of €2bn worth of Eurobonds in connection with the Covid 19 pandemic. Other prominent areas of activity included acquisition finance and property finance transactions, as well as fintech-related matters. Žygimantas Stankevičius formerly worked as head of legal at Luminor (Lithuania’s largest bank), making him well-placed to handle regulatory work. He jointly leads the team with Vidmantas Drizga, who is an expert in capital markets transactions, derivatives and insolvencies. In addition to acting for major players in the domestic market, the firm’s client base also consists of international names such as Credit Suisse and Revolut. Vilius Bernatonis and associate partner Mantas Gofmanas are also recommended.
