Our attorneys defend customers in both misdemeanour as well as criminal cases in extrajudicial and judicial proceedings in all courts. Our goal is to ascertain justifying and mitigating circumstances and those which preclude our customers’ liability, and to provide our customers all-inclusive legal assistance in criminal cases.
Our attorneys have extensive knowledge and experience in both defending the accused as well as in representing the victims.
Our partner and attorney-at-law Raul Ainla has long-term experience in defending natural persons and legal entities in criminal proceedings. He also represents victims in criminal proceedings. He defended the head of the Compensation Fund Andres Männart, adviser to the Minister of Social Affairs Anders Tsahkna and ex-superintendent Aivar Krusta, which are a few of his more widely reported cases. Raul Ainla successfully represented victims in the Janel Raap criminal case where considerable amounts of compensation were awarded.
Our attorneys prosperously defended the rights of AS Alexela Sillamäe in their case against the Tax and Customs Board where they requested that the latter’s decision made in a customs-related misdemeanour case be revoked.
Our partner and attorney-at-law Martin Traat has successfully defended persons in criminal cases that are mainly related to economic and business activities. He has also represented victims in criminal proceedings, and has many times convinced the circuit courts to revoke incorrect judicial decisions that terminated criminal proceedings and thus violated the rights of the victims.
