Former Single.Earth Chief Legal Officer Gerd Laub has joined Ellex's Estonian office as a Counsel.
Laub served as Single.Earth's Chief Legal Officer for a year prior to his move. Prior to that, he worked for SEB Eesti between 2019 and 2021, first joining the company as the Head of Investment Legal and later being appointed to Head of Credit Legal. Earlier still, he was the Chief Legal Officer at Funderbeam between 2016 and 2019. Between 2016 and 2017, Laub was a Counsel with Sorainen and also served as the Head of Compliance of SEB Pank between 2013 and 2015.
“After all, we are in the business of helping people by solving their legal concerns," commented Ellex Raidla’s partner for venture capital and technology companies Antti Perli. "As in life generally, you can help a person best if you put yourself in their shoes and try to understand as precisely as possible what they need. For most of his professional life, Gerd has worked inside the sector, as if on the client’s side, and in addition to his unique wealth of knowledge, he also has a very good sense of how to give advice that is truly valuable.”
