Let’s make Christmas presents together this year

Although we would like to treat each of our customers, collaborators and good friends with some lovely gifts during the holidays, we can do better in the current situation. Ukraine is still fighting for its freedom, and this year we have decided to direct our Christmas gift finances and more to help Ukraine.

We decided not to offer help passively but to “put our hands on it” ourselves. A couple of LEXTAL colleagues will set off to Ukraine with the rest of the convoy in just a week. The car full of necessary equipment for the medical battalion “Hospitallers” (https://www.hospitallers.life/) should arrive at the destination in 35 hours.

We invite You, dear reader, to contribute to this undertaking. Let’s make a Christmas present together this time. For those in need. For the defenders of freedom. You can send your donation to the account:




Please indicate SLAVA UKRAINE in the explanation

All donations go towards buying, preparing and filling the medical battalion car with the necessary equipment. If the donations are more than the amount of one car and supplies, we will transfer the rest of the money to support the HELP99 initiative.

Here we would like to acknowledge the work of HELP99, an organization created by LIFT99 in Kyiv, which has been organizing aid to Ukraine for months and is also letting us help.

Slava Ukraini!

LEXTAL hosted the Trans-European Law Firms Alliance (TELFA) annual meeting.

LEXTAL hosted the Trans-European Law Firms Alliance (TELFA) annual meeting in Tallinn. The conference’s purpose is to bring together young lawyers who would be able to learn something new and (re)establish contact with other professionals working in their field of practice.
In the first half of the day, the main topic of the meeting was introduced, which was cryptocurrency and everything related to it. Margus Poola introduced blockchain technology and gave an overview of its possibilities of use. Henri Ratnik and Rauno Kinkar gave an inside view with the help of real-life examples of how the work of lawyers is connected with a new currency and what questions may arise working with it. Towards the end of the day, Mats Volberg led a panel discussion where representatives from three countries shared cryptocurrency-related legislation and operating rules in their home countries.
The conference hosted almost half a hundred guests from 16 different countries. Future plans for the association and how to promote better services were also discussed. LEXTAL has been a member of TELFA since 2009.

Vaccine insurance law entered into force

On May 1, a novel vaccine insurance law came into force in Estonia. Under the new law, a patient or their relatives can apply for compensation for personal injury caused by severe vaccination-related complications. LEXTAL’s attorneys-at-law Olavi-Jüri Luik and Rauno Kinkar played a key role in drafting the vaccine insurance law (medicines act).

Below is an intro to why the new insurance model is necessary and also how to apply for compensation in case of side effects.

Why Vaccine Insurance?

Severe complications from vaccination are statistically infrequent. However, side effects still exist. The advantage of vaccine insurance is that it helps to reduce people’s fears about vaccination. To lessen these fears, vaccine insurance has been introduced in about 30 countries worldwide. The advantage of insurance is that a person does not have to enter into a dispute with a vaccine manufacturer who is economically more capable and as such a difficult opponent.
