Edvinas Meškys, Dr.

The status of an attorney-at-law ensures the cultivation of the highest moral and ethical values, the ability to understand various legal risks and ways of avoiding or mitigating them; social activities and experience on the boards of the Lithuanian Young Bar Association, the American Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania and other organizations developed the ability not only to lead, but also to work in a team, while the experience of teaching at universities and giving presentations allows to explain information in a structured way, to take into account people with different abilities and knowledge. All these personal qualities encourage continuous improvement and the pursuit of ever greater goals and properly representing one’s profession.

We are constantly deepening our legal knowledge so that our clients can entrust their concerns and legal problems to us. Hence the life credo “Don’t wait for the storm to pass – learn to dance in the rain”.
