Maria Veermäe

Associate

Maria is a GLIMSTEDT associate, who assists attorneys-at-law mainly in public procurement matters, but also has extensive experience in employment law, data protection, commercial law, real estate and construction law.

Maria has worked as a lawyer for over 10 years. Most of this time she has practiced as an in-house lawyer for various companies. This has given her a valuable ability to see how companies work and the needs of the legal field and how to solve problems on the clients’ side. She has managed the legal areas of various companies and supported the management in their activities, including acting as the legal area manager of Verston, one of the largest road construction companies in Estonia. This has enabled her to deal with a wide range of areas of law and to find solutions to a wide range of problems.

For the last 2 years, Maria worked at the Centre for Defence Investment. Acting as a legal adviser on public procurement on a daily basis in the largest public procurement authority has enabled her to further secure her status as an expert in the field of public procurement. Maria has participated in various procurement procedures both in organizing procurements and representing CDI in the appeal committee in handling various disputes. Based on this experience, in addition to her previous role as a tenderer (including its activities in Verston), Maria also has the ability to see public procurement in its role as a contracting authority. This gives her strong competitive advantages over many other professionals in the field.

Maria’s experience strengthens the profile of our law firm in the field of public procurement. It also supports our line of business, which is to provide the in-house lawyer services to companies. Maria’s experience in working as an in-house lawyer complements the experience of other team members in the role of in-house lawyer.

Maria fits well with our team with her practical experience with clients and working in the public sector.

Lawyers who are not members of the Estonian Bar Association do not provide legal services independently.
