For the second year in a row, Chambers commends one of the strongest Employment partner teams in Tallinn, Triinu Hiob and Katrin Sarap, who are recognised for their willingness "to go the extra mile in lobbying for our cause", clients say, describing the team as "trustworthy, punctual and solution-oriented”.

In addition, Chambers welcomes two Up and Coming partners among the ranked partners. Highlighting her experience in the start-up and technology scene, clients say about Partner Anne Veerpalu that she has a “direct and quick approach”, while Banking & Finance Partner Ulrich Hejle is highlighted for being "good at discussing options” and that “his attention to detail means you get to the right solution".

The 2017 guide also includes excellent department rankings and reviews such as "they are effective, proactive and reasonable in their approach", says one client about NJORD’s Intellectual Property practice.

Another client emphasizes the Dispute Resolution practice’s abilities to adapt to the client’s needs: "NJORD's team is perceptive to my business needs and does what it can to accommodate my needs and help me reach my targets".

Finally, veteran notable practitioners within IP, Shipping, and Tax – Partners Jeppe Brogaard Clausen, Ulla Fabricius, and Robert Mikelsons – were once again highlighted for their expertise and professional handling of clients.
