Lithuania has the largest telecommunications & IT industry in the Baltic States and has been acknowledged as one of the major IT centres in Northern Europe.

Businesses and investors in these sectors need counsel with wide-ranging experience and in-depth industry knowledge.

Our clients include Baltic Media Alliance, NBC Universal Global Networks, Respublikos leidiniai, Publicum Group, and Fima.
