Glikman Alvin's Paul Keres has successfully defended Kaur Kender, who the firm identifies as "Estonia’s most controversial writer," against the criminal charge of creation and dissemination of child pornography in his work.

According to Glikman Alvin, "to the best of our knowledge, it is the first case of its kind in Estonian history where a writer has been indicted solely on the grounds of his literary work. On the eve of the country’s 100th anniversary, we are happy to note the court’s steadfast stance in defense of the freedom of speech and arts."
