TESTIMONIAL

2021-Hugo Oslula-Grant Thornton Baltic-350x350.pngOur relationship with Grant Thornton Baltic goes back several decades. I know I can count on them for resolving even more complicated issues. A good example was preparing and carrying out the transaction involving the sale of a majority stake in Milrem LCM OÜ, which belonged to Mootor Group. The teamwork was smooth and efficient and a number of tricky situations were overcome with ease. I appreciate how Grant Thornton Baltic’s advisors are hard-working, meticulous and detail-oriented, and they get my confident recommendation.

Hugo Osula, Chairman of the Management Board of Mootor Group
