“High standards of professional work.” (IFLR1000, 2017)


A book, co-authored by DERLING PRIMUS partners

Thorough comments of the Code of Conduct of the Estonian Bar Association have just been completed. This is the first commented edition of a Code of Conduct ever published in the history of the Estonian Bar Association. DERLING PRIMUS Partners Hannes Vallikivi and Elmer Muna also contributed to the completion of the comments. Hannes is the Chairman of the Estonian Bar Association, and Elmer is a member of the Ethics and Methodology Committee. The commentators’ team also included Ain Alvin, Liina Linsi, Uno Lõhmus and Martin Tamme.

The commentary analyses and summarises the jurisprudence of the Estonian Bar Association’s court of honour, the practices of the Estonian courts and the European Court of Human Rights, the guidelines of the Bar Association, and the opinions of the management board and Ethics and Methodology Committee. The professional ethics theory has also been analysed.

The comments appeared as a book, but they are also available to all interested parties electronically from the website of the Estonian Bar Association.
