About us

Our law office was founded in 2001 – the moment when a decade has passed since Latvia regained its independence, the moment when economics were dynamically growing, but current legal system was at the stage of development. The time when Latvia was running up to become a member of the European Union and became a hot spot on the world map for investors from all over the world. It was the time of possibilities, growth, challenge and transformation; time calling for skilful pilots to guide foreign and internal investors through sometimes deceitful and “irregular waters” of the developing Latvian business and legal environment.

Operating for more than a decade now, among foreign and local clients of different fields and calibres, Skrastiņš & Dzenis has a reputation of a knowledgeable and versatile full service business law firm. Our strengths have proven to be personal and innovative attitude, individually tailored solutions, quality, prompt and professional legal service.
