Elis Vija

I joined Fondia in January 2021 after years of legal work in Grant Thornton Baltic, Swedbank and the Ministry of Finance of Estonia. A large part of my legal career has been involved in litigation. I have represented the Republic of Estonia in various civil disputes in Estonian courts and arbitration courts in Estonia and abroad. Among other things, I was able to deal thoroughly with legal disputes related to ownership reform. In Swedbank, my main task was to represent the bank and leasing company in various court disputes and bankruptcy proceedings during the last recession. However, in Grant Thornton my focus was set on more general legal advisory including, corporate law, contract law, property law, labour law and transaction advisory.

I believe that my rather extensive experience in procedural and commercial law in particular creates added value for Fondia's clients.
