Others about us and our work



I value Tanel’s ability to understand not only the legal but also the business side and, as a result of that, to reach the most suitable solution. Correctness, dedication and flexibility – these pleasant attributes and prefessional competence are the reasons why I’m glad to recommend Piret and Tanel also to others.



Piret and Tanel are nice people who are pleasant to work with. It saves a lot of my time that they have learned to know me as a client and offer solutions that stem from my actual needs.



They are smart people and I have received professional help from them. They are characterised by flexibility, responsiveness and punctuality, i.e. they stick to the deadlines. I can fully recommend them and have done so several times.



What I like about Piret is her speed, precision and concreteness and the wish to find solutions not just answers to questions. It is very good and easy to deal with Piret and Tanel. They stand out for their client-friendly approach and ability to see the bigger picture.
