"Banking law, as well as the finance and fintech law sector, has been humming for the last few years," Adon Legal Managing Partner Donatas Sliora commented. "With tighter compliance regulations, more intense supervision of the Bank of Lithuania, and growing popularity of financial services provided via mobile apps and hybrid services, the demand for this kind of legal services has been growing approximately by 20% annually. We are very excited to welcome a team member with a phenomenal set of skills. Having experience as a compliance officer in two banks offers a unique perspective on setting-up compliance systems, working on regulatory audits, and dealing with other internal issues of large regulated institutions."
