Former associate partner at law firm NOVE, Mari Matjus, was promoted to partner in July 2019. Mari Matjus is a young generation partner who has built a career in several law firms, holds a Master’s degree in law from the University of Oxford and has trained hundreds of young Estonian lawyers in competition law at the Law Faculty of Tartu University. She manages the practice groups of medical law, data protection and competition law.
„It is a pleasure to join the partnership of a law firm which holds true to values similar to mine. Teamwork, integrity and sharp client focus is crucial,” noted Mari Matjus.
“The promotion of Matjus to NOVE partnership reconfirms that Mari’s integration into NOVE team has been smooth and that NOVE is a rapidly growing law firm open to outstanding specialists in their respective fields of law who act in line with our values and fulfil other criteria,” commented Urmas Volens, co-founder and managing partner of the firm.
Legal500, an international guide to law firms, names Matjus as new generation lawyer in competition law, while another well-known legal market guide Chambers Europe recognizes her in the up and coming section. Customers have indicated that they value her ability to absorb details which may seem unimportant to the naked eye and to implement them into the bigger picture of the deal. Mari Matjus is a member of Competition Law Commission at Estonian Bar Association and a board member of Oxford & Cambridge Club Estonia.
Founded in 2016, NOVE is a fast-growing new generation law firm that has expanded in the practice areas of M&A, real estate, company law, data protection, medical law and competition law, in addition to its original focus on litigation. Other partners at NOVE include Urmas Volens, Andrus Kattel, Veikko Puolakainen, Arsi Pavelts, and Kristjan Tamm.
