The liquidators team is run by sworn lawyers Eva Berlaus and Elvy Weber, real estate and financial expert Andris Kovalčuks, as well as business finance expert Arvīds Kostomarovs. Independent experts and the international audit firm Ernst & Young, which includes experts from at least five countries, are also involved in the liquidation of the liquidators.

Creditors are requested to file their claims or complaints against the bank by 18 September this year at the latest.
The aim of the process of self-settlement is to satisfy 100% of all claims and interests of the bank's creditors. The volume of ABLV Bank's assets to be liquidated is more than sufficient to cover all claims of creditors.
