Legal Counsel

Kaili Rätsepp

Kaili’s role at Palladium Law Firm is that of Legal Counsel. Her main fields of activities are employment law, immigration law, law of obligations, including contract law, corporate law, property law, law of succession and family law. Kaili believes it is important for the client to be able to focus on their everyday activities even during legally complex and sometimes emotional disputes, while knowing that their interests are being efficiently protected.

Kaili’s favourite field of activity and great passion is employment law. To date, she has worked on issues regarding employment law and various personnel management matters for more than 15 years. Kaili served as Chair of the Employment Dispute Committee from 2018 to 2023. During that time, she resolved approximately 1,800 employment disputes. Her previous work experience as a HR manager and lawyer in the private sector coupled with her interest in employment law have given Kaili the advantage of understanding questions related to employment relations from the differing perspectives of the employer, the employee and an impartial third party.

Over the years, Kaili has contributed to extrajudicial disputes and litigation cases in matters related to ownership, contractual and extra contractual relations. In her view, in many cases, it is quite reasonable to reach an agreement instead of taking a confrontational path. For that reason, Kaili is interested in and constantly working on developing her skills in the field of mediation. In addition to the above, family law matters are close to Kaili’s heart.

Kaili has been a guest lecturer at the Estonian Entrepreneurship University of Applied Sciences (Eesti Ettevõtluskõrgkool Mainor), where she has shared her knowledge about flexible and reliable employment relations with students.

In her free time, Kaili likes to travel and read books.
