Dispute settlement (incl. arbitration)

Our lawyers have long-term and diverse experience in settling disputes in Estonia and abroad and we have attained a solid reputation in both regions in that regard. We pursue civil, administrative, arbitration and economic crime cases.

Our firm has the longest experience in Estonia in dispute settlement and arbitration. Advocatus emeritus Aleksander Glikman, who has over 60 years of court experience and is one of the co-authors of Estonia’s modern legislation, advises our attorneys in legal theory matters as well as in choosing a dispute strategy.

Legendary dispute attorney Simon Levin practised in our firm and enriched the knowledge and experience of our attorneys. Senior partners and attorneys-at-law Leon Glikman and Ain Alvin have 36 and 35 years, respectively, of experience in successfully pursuing court disputes and arbitration. Both law professionals contributed to reaching new fundamental and groundbreaking judicial interpretations, and quite a few legal rules have been declared unconstitutional in cases pursued by them in their clients’ interests. Neither attorneys-at-law need introduction in Estonia and their high qualifications are, in addition to clients, highly valued also by judges and colleagues.

Attorneys-at-law Leon Glikman and Ain Alvin are renowned arbitrators who have repeatedly been appointed as chairs or panel members of domestic and foreign courts of arbitration. For instance, attorney-at-law Leon Glikman has as an arbitrator decided disputes worth tens of millions of euros in the arbitration institutes of Stockholm and Helsinki.

The law firm’s partner Paul Keres is probably the best-known and most renowned attorney-at-law of the younger generation in Estonia. Attorney-at-law Paul Keres has successfully defended clients’ rights not only in court but also in domestic and foreign arbitration tribunals.

Our attorneys have published numerous legal theory articles in Estonia and abroad. Leon Glikman has published over a hundred legal policy and business articles.
Our attorneys are highly in-demand law lecturers, especially in the field of procedural law.

Our priority is to defend our clients in every way and to that end we take all measures that are not prohibited by law. Our attorneys have participated in complex and fundamental court and arbitration cases involving claims of several dozens of millions of euros. Regardless of the voluminousness or complexity of the case, we do our best in representing our clients’ interests.

We prefer to communicated with our clients in a friendly and informal manner and are readily available. Sometimes it is necessary to prefer compromise and reconciliation proceedings and we also have long-term experience in these types of proceedings.
