MAGNUSSON HIRES NEW SENIOR COUNSEL MARTIN HIRVOJA IN TALLINN

2016-11-23

Magnusson announces that the recognised lawyer and former high-ranking civil servant Martin Hirvoja has joined the Estonian office. First and foremost, Martin Hirvoja will focus on issues related to investments, real estate, corporate law, and dispute resolution.

According to Tallinn Managing Partner Jaanus Mägi, Hirvoja’s experience in introducing Estonia to international investors and assisting Estonian exporters in reaching foreign markets is perfectly suited to the services provided by Magnusson to its customers. Furthermore, during his career at the Ministry of Justice, Hirvoja made a considerable contribution to the national judicial policy, thus leaving a deep personal imprint on the highly regarded Estonian legal system. His expertise in public and criminal law as well as his connections complement our firm well.

Martin Hirvoja previously worked as a Member of the Management Board of Enterprise Estonia and was directly responsible for issues concerning foreign investment, export, and tourism. He was also involved in commercial real estate investment counselling at NordicProperty. He has extensive experience in coordinating and developing Estonian legal policy in the areas of Public and Private Law as well as the corresponding European Union Law. Hirvoja was the Deputy Secretary General and the Director of the Criminal Policy Department and Legal Policy Department with the Ministry of Justice, where he contributed significantly to the development of the Estonian legal system. At the beginning of his career in the law, Hirvoja served as the Chief Prosecutor at the Northern District Prosecutor’s Office and as the State Prosecutor at the Central Public Prosecutor’s Office.

“I am very pleased that I can work for Magnusson, an international company with a wide network of offices from Norway to China”, said Martin Hirvoja. “I highly appreciate the opportunity to contribute nationally as well as internationally, together with my new colleagues, since Magnusson offers its customers an integrated cross-border service of consistently high quality in various areas of the law, which is an easy and comfortable solution for the clients.”

Magnusson launched its office in Estonia in April 2012. The Estonian team is highly experienced in corporate law and M&A, dispute resolution, IT and intellectual property law, public procurement, real estate, and tax law. Earlier this year, Elvira Tulvik joined the team from KPMG as a partner, strengthening its capabilities in administrative law, tax, gambling law and dispute resolution.
