Grant Thornton has a new firm in the Baltic States. Currently trading as Rimess Baltic, and a former firm of Praxity, the new firm will operate as Grant Thornton Rimess Baltic. The firm operates across Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia, with offices in Tallinn, Tartu, Vilnius, Kaunas, Klaipeda and Riga and is already highly regarded, with the Estonian office ranking fourth in local league tables.
Established in 1992, Rimess Baltic has 15 partners and 112 employees, and is led by three managing partners, Mati Nõmmiste in Estonia, Genadijus Makuševas in Lithuania and Jelena Žovnikova in Latvia. The firm offers audit, accounting, financial and business, tax and legal advisory services.
Ed Nusbaum, CEO, Grant Thornton International, commented, “It gives me great pleasure to welcome our new member firm in the Baltics, a great addition that completes our footprint in northern Europe. They bring with them a great deal of experience and expertise and an ambition to expand their service lines and develop the business further.”
Managing partner, Mati Nõmmiste, said, “I am delighted that we are joining Grant Thornton and see this as an excellent opportunity to develop and grow our business further. Operating as Grant Thornton will allow us to develop a world class reputation to build on our already strong presence across the Baltics. In addition, it gives us great pleasure to be working again alongside our former Praxity colleagues in Russia and Austria who have also recently joined Grant Thornton.”
