Over a number of years Baiba and her team have been very helpful in facilitating and closing number of projects and transactions for companies that I have been involved with. Baiba is a focused “all-rounder” legal resource at a time of need. She is a professional with wide range of competencies and high ethical standards. There is no difference whether the task is small or if it is a more complicated matter – Baiba will deal with it with the same care and attention. I admire her motivation to grow and constantly develop herself. That clearly has helped us on several occasions – Baiba’s coaching and mediating skills have come as an additional benefit in solving complex situations.

Over many years, I have evidenced results of Baiba’s performance as a legal adviser, trainer, mediator and mentor. All the challenges thrown at Baiba she has managed to solve efficiently, with long-standing strategy and in highly ethical way, always for the benefit of the client. Baiba has drafted limited partnership agreements for all our latest invesment funds incentives with total subscribed capital of hundreds of millions EUR, and along the way mentored our legal team and risk capital team into high proficiency in the matter. When mediating meetings with those companies who have not won public procurement, Baiba ensured friendly atmosphere leading highly charged situations into peaceful outcome. When presenting a legal opinion on an issue which might have had a direct impact on our company’s financial results, Baiba demonstrated both – strong stamina for the principle, meanwhile opening horizons for interpretation, both from the existing market practice and good corporate governance point of view. It has always been a valuable experience working together with Baiba.
Chairman of the Management Board at ALTUM AS, a state-owned development finance institution
Baiba has been servicing BaltCap since 2003 and thus evidenced and been part of our development. Baiba has always contributed to our values – Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, Professionalism, Accountability and Performance, also as a mentor to our new team members. None of transactions negotiated and legally advised by Baiba have ever reached a court, even such cases when the court petitions have been “in the air” – all thanks to strong legal reasoning, negotiation strategy, sensing a conflict from far away and looking for the best possible solutions for all the involved parties. Jointly we have successfully navigated through icebergs, unpredictable situations and risks.

Our company took a tailored training programme specifically for needs of our company. In 2021 during period of 9 months our employees gained supportive mindfulness and developed skills for their personal stress resistance in highly stressful situations in servicing our clients when our turnover increased by 4 times compared to the previous year’s high season. Employees enhanced their positive language skills leading the client towards solutions and loyalty to services of our company. As a result of the training, effective and trustful peer sharing took its stable place amongst other our employees support tools. This training helped the group a lot!

In 10 hours of coaching with Baiba, I rediscovered my personal ambitious goals in developing Commercial Law principles according to the latest developments in the field in the Europe. That motivated me to design a new step-by-step plan for implementing a long-term strategy set by the Ministry. Making an impact is a motivation which I share with Baiba as a coach and also a law professional.
