The Estonian Bar Association handed over a Quality Management Certificate to NJORD Law Firm in Tallinn
The Quality Management Certificate is a display of excellence for high service standard, achieved by management in the firm and it is given to Law firms in Estonia by the Estonian Bar Association. It confirms that the firm's service standard is in accordance with the Bar Associations Act, internal rules and Code of Conduct.
The certificate confirms that NJORD follows the Bar Associations standard of service, the integral parts of which are:
Proper way of conducting everyday business;
Creating and maintaining a work environment, which favors quality legal services;
Innovative services and sustainable development, maintenance and formation of client relationships.
Only eleven other law firms in Estonia have been awarded with this certificate.
What tax liabilities are created, when an employer terminates their work relationship with the employee e.g. due to layoffs? Often when the working relationship ends, the parties agree that the employer will pay a compensation to the former employee during a certain period. There are several reasons for paying compensations, perhaps most common of them is the restriction of competition clause.
We are very proud that NJORD partner, Ulla Fabricius, has been appointed as Denmark's leading female lawyer in shipping on Expert Guides' list. This is an incredible distinction, which is particularly remarkable in an industry area primarily dominated by men.
As Estonia is gaining recognition for its successful increase of creativity, more and more brands are spreading beyond our borders. When noticing Estonian design in foreign airports or department stores, many of us Estonians feel impressed. But, be sure to register your brand as a trademark to ensure legal protection for your idea. Copyrights, trademarks, designs and patents can be registered both domestically and on a more or less global scale, and it gives the registered author the exclusive right to use his or her own creation in any way and to permit or prohibit the use of the work by other persons. In other words, no-one should earn money on your creativity without a license!
