TGS Baltic lawyer Violeta Zeppa-Priedite has become Head of the White Collar Crime & Corporate Investigations practice in the firm's Latvian office.
Zeppa-Priedite will be assisted in her new role by TGS Baltic Senior Associates Dmitri Teplohh and Matas Balenas.
At the beginning of her career in law, Zeppa-Priedite honed her skills at the Public Prosecutor’s Office and the Ministry of Justice of Latvia from 1996 to 2002. After years of lecturing at various institutions and working for Latvia's Corruption Prevention and Combating Bureau, she joined the Triniti law firm in 2012, where she spent another seven years, before joining TGS Baltic in 2019. She obtained her Ph.D. from the Faculty of Law of the University of Latvia in 2010.
Ivars Grunte, TGS Baltic's Managing Partner in Latvia, explained that, “the White Collar Crime and Corporate Investigations practice group will differ in that it will not only specialize in white collar crimes, but it will also provide legal assistance in the areas of corporate compliance.”
