So why me? I’m managing every day the most challenging, smart and self-aware people – attorneys, in the rapidly changing legal environment, so I think, I can cope with everything. I joined NJORD 2 years ago, and some highlights that I have achieved during this time:
– Digital processes in the next level (new client management software, incl billing and e-invoicing);
– Systematised AML/KYC processes (online tool for clients for the smooth on-boarding);
– Fully remotely manageable firm. During the spring, we closed the office for 3 weeks. Results? Better than before.
– This all has meant reviewing and updating all the internal procedures.
– This all has meant also keeping people on-board and happy! site up and running dedicated for the NewTech start-ups.
– NJORD LAB programme established in the firm. What is NJORD Lab >> this is a legal R&D centre for innovative technology start-ups. See more:

So what else? I am qualified attorney-at-law, specialised in IT law, HealthTech and Legal Risk Management. See more:

I have been member of the management board in Estonian Service Industry Association, so familiar with lobbing routines for the entrepreneurship.
