Hedman Law Firm has been recognised once again as a leading law firm in The Legal 500’s 2024 Guide, securing top rankings across multiple practice areas. This recognition reaffirms our commitment to excellence in the legal field, both in Estonia and internationally, and marks another milestone in our journey of providing top-tier legal services.

In Commercial, Corporate, and M&A, we demonstrated our prowess by advising significant transactions such as Planet42’s $18 million equity raise to fuel its global expansion, and Elevator Ventures’ investment in Bob W, a tech-driven hospitality provider. Under the leadership of Merlin Seeman, with key attorneys Toomas Seppel, Kati Pino, and Taavi Kõiv we continue to navigate complex transactions that have a profound impact on the market.

Our Fintech practice received a Tier 2 ranking, reflecting our pivotal role in shaping industry-leading transactions and legal frameworks.

In IP, IT, and Telecoms, we continued our support for technology startups, achieving a Tier 2 ranking. Notable engagements include advising UniTartu Ventures on an intellectual property transfer to UP Catalyst, a sustainable carbon material producer, and advising MTÜ Filmi Esmasalvestuse Tootjate Ühing, a collective representation organisation for film producers, in its negotiations with telecommunication companies to conclude license agreements for the respective rights. Our work across the Baltics and Scandinavia cements our reputation as experts in IP strategy, data protection, and trademark law.

The continued recognition by The Legal 500 is a testament to our team’s hard work and the trust our clients place in us.
