“A leading light in Lithuanian IP”, AAA Law has cross-office collaboration down pat, with its teams across the Baltic states working seamlessly side by side. The business law firm offers a comprehensive menu of trademark services, although opposition proceedings are a particular forte. The group takes its cue from founder and senior partner Marius Jakulis Jason, a master tactician and invaluable sounding board whose advice enables smart decision making. Colleagues Otilija Klimaitienė and Aušra Pakėnienė deftly navigate the contentious/non-contentious divide. An expert on the alcoholic beverage industry, Klimaitienė has a knack for enhancing the value of portfolios; while WTR 1000 newcomer Pakeniene handles registrations and office actions with a deft touch, while tenaciously enforcing clients’ rights before local authorities as well as at the EUIPO.

AAA Law has generated a real buzz through its merger with one of Estonia’s most renowned trademark agencies, LASVET. The move has significantly expanded its offering and strengthened its market position on both the contentious and non-contentious fronts. In Almar Sehver, the group has a “superb leader and one of the best professionals in the country. He can be counted on to deal with complex disputes – for example, in the pharmaceutical industry – with great skill and efficiency”. Versatile litigators Mikas Miniotas and Ingrid Matsina also draw praise – the former as a “swift and successful handler of infringement and customs proceedings”, and the latter as a “helpful and responsive attorney who excels at explaining procedural intricacies”. Both have held esteemed positions: Miniotas as a lawyer to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Lithuania and Matsina as deputy head of the trademark department at the Estonian Patent Office. Coming from the LASVET side, Villu Pavelts is a “prominent expert on strategy and highly reputed agent” with more than four decades of experience.
