We also are known for our experience with real estate law (sale, lease, and management of any type of property) and Mergers and Acquisitions. We are highly respected in the legal community for our litigation skills as well as our experience with inter-modal transport issues (agreements/disputes with ports and port facilities, shipping companies, railways, aircraft service providers, freight forwarders, etc.).
Our goal is to always provide quick, professional, creative and cost-effective services to our clients.
How we differ

This insures that the needs and opinions of our clients are clearly understood in order to effectively protect their interests to the highest degree, that is, nothing is "lost in translation". This also allows Spigulis & Kukainis to provide advice from a perspective unique from that of other Baltic-based law firms or consultancies.
