Priit has worked as a legal counsel since 1997. Prior to joining PwC Legal, he worked in the law firm GLIMSTEDT for over 10 years, being also the founding partner of the firm.

Priit is a renowned specialist in IP, IT (including the internet of things and cryptocurrencies), tax and public procurement law, representing and advising Estonian and international companies and public institutions. Priit also has significant experience in representing clients in disputes which have created precedents at the Supreme Court, including the constitutional review chamber. Among other things, Priit has represented a client in Estonia’s biggest software dispute and in Estonia’s first bitcoin-related legal regulation lawsuit. Priit also successfully represented a client in a trademark dispute, in which the Supreme Court declared several important provisions of the Code of Civil Procedure, and Government Regulations that established limits to legal expenses in civil disputes, as invalid and unconstitutional.

Priit participated as the only attorney in a public and private sector work group, which for the first time in Estonia developed a recommended standard contract for the public procurement of software development. Priit has given many presentations at seminars and conferences, and has published articles on several legal issues.
