The legal counsel Mart Parind advises NOVE’s attorneys on legal matters and disputes related to public procurements and is the Head of European Law, Intellectual Property and Sports Law at NOVE.

Mart is one of Estonia’s leading experts in public procurement law. Before joining NOVE, Mart worked as a member of the Public Procurement Review Committee, administering justice in the first instance in hundreds of public procurement disputes. Before taking up membership in the Public Procurement Review Committee, Mart has been a lawyer and attorney focusing on public procurements, and has taught public procurement law at Tallinn University, so he has gathered a unique set of knowledge and experience in this field in Estonia. Under his co-authorship, the core work of Estonian public procurement law has been published: the commented edition of the Public Procurement Act (Juura 2019).

Mart has in-depth expertise in legal matters concerning the European Union and other Old World organisations and is the Head of European Law at NOVE. He has published a comprehensive collection of works on European Union law – “Euroopa Liidu õigus. Eesti vaade” (UKU 2022), the first Estonian-language written work of the kind.

Mart’s other areas of counselling include constitutional law, intellectual property and dispute resolution. Combining his passion for law with his second passion – sports – Mart is very much interested in the legal issues concerning the activities of athletes and sports organisations and is leading the field of sports law at NOVE.

Mart has extensive experience in judicial proceedings and other dispute resolution procedures. As an attorney, Mart has represented clients in various civil and administrative matters, from media disputes related to defamation to complex wind power disputes. As a former member of the Public Procurement Review Committee, Mart has excellent knowledge and practical experience in administrative court procedure.

Mart’s previous work and study experience are good prerequisites for him to be of service to NOVE’s clients in intellectual property matters as well. As a lawyer and attorney, Mart has advised various domestic and foreign clients on issues relating to legal protection of trademarks and has helped set up successful strategies in trademark disputes. Mart has also been involved in the drafting of numerous author’s contracts. Mart’s Bachelor thesis on European Union trademark law and his Master’s thesis on the touchpoints between public procurement law and copyright have been awarded various national and university prizes.

Mart is a frequent speaker at training sessions, seminars and conferences, sharing his knowledge, experience and ideas on a broad selection of legal topics.
