COBALT was recognized at the Investor of the Year in Latvia 2018 ceremony in Riga on 17 January 2019, receiving the Legal Adviser of the Year award. The ceremony is organized by the Latvian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association and Latvian Business Angel Network. COBALT receives recognition for fifth time in eight years, previously being named “Legal Adviser of the Year” in 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017.

The award received by COBALT was secured by involvement in such projects as the Kartesia’s first investment in the Baltics with the acquisition of Groglass®, the sale of Runway BPO to Webhelp and other deals.

Likewise, we are truly pleased for Kartesia receiving the “Investment of the Year” award.

At the ceremony honouring the most successful private equity and venture capital investment projects in Latvia in 2018, awards were granted in six categories, including “Investment of the Year”, “Sales Transaction of the Year”, “Financial Adviser of the Year” and “Legal Adviser of the Year”

As in previous years, a panel of judges, including members of the Latvian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association and the Latvian Business Angel Network, chose the winners based on written submissions.
