When doing business in Estonia, an entrepreneur undertakes to comply with local legal standards. Complying with Estonian legislation in every aspect enables a company to exist legally and avoid further legal issues.
Estonia is the most favourable jurisdiction for starting a business. Considering the opportunities Estonia provides for entrepreneurs, establishing a company is fast, convenient and affordable. However, company formation is still a legal procedure and involves several legal and business aspects that follow a company establishment and further company management.
Moreover, receiving competent support for your business provides a company with legal reliability and thereby contributes to trustworthiness which is, in fact, crucial for every beginning business. Without a doubt, it is important to take care of a company’s reputation since its very establishment; an accurate start complying with Estonian legislation improves the chances of your company for subsequent literate management of a company.
Remember that by contacting a lawyer prior to taking any action, you will avoid unnecessary expenses and save time in solving problems that may arise as a result of an incompetent decision. In addition, by involving a lawyer in the preparation of the next step, you will be able to learn about the new opportunities and prospects of the situation.

Legal opinion allows you to clearly define your legal rights and help you avoid costly litigation in the future. Legal opinion is indispensable in transactions with foreign counterparties and, if issues of several jurisdictions are raised simultaneously, it requires the involvement of appropriate specialists or foreign Lawyers/Attorneys.
When ordering a legal opinion, you need to understand the purposes for which you require it:
- In order to familiarise yourself with the legal implications of the agreement
- In order to legally support your arguments
- In order to learn about possible legal risks
- In order to show the Regulator that you intend to comply with their requirements
- In order to convince the Client or Partner that your offer is legal
- In order to have a tool to protect your company in the future.
We note that legal opinion is a document to which you can refer to during the future business activity of your company.
Some of the cases that require legal opinion:
- In case it is necessary to understand what permits/licenses are required to start a company
