Gintaras Kukauskas, Head of the Legal Division

The Legal Division is a team of professional lawyers with considerable experience both in the public and private sectors. Our lawyers form legal positions on issues within the competence of the Bank of Lithuania and contribute to the implementation of Bank of Lithuania strategic objectives.

The Division prepares and assesses draft legal acts. We ensure that legal acts are in compliance with legislative norms and the requirements of EU and Republic of Lithuania legal acts. Our lawyers are also in charge of drawing up and assessing draft agreements to be signed by the Bank of Lithuania as well as Bank of Lithuania responses to letters from legal and natural persons. The Legal Division aims to ensure that these documents are legally irreproachable and in line with regulatory requirements in order to remove any inconsistencies or other factors that could pose legal risk to the Bank of Lithuania.

We seek to provide timely and professional assistance to our colleagues from other Bank of Lithuania units, devoting considerable attention to their consultations. Our lawyers advise the Board of the Bank of Lithuania and other employees on everyday matters and complex professional issues.

Employees at the Legal Division are assigned to draft procedural documents and act on behalf of the Bank of Lithuania in court, pre-trail dispute-settling bodies and other institutions.
