Glatzova & Co has successfully represented the interests of paper products manufacturer Mondi Steti before the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic.
According to Glatzova & Co., "Mondi had engaged in a dispute with CEZ Distribuce before the Decin District Court in which the Court had imposed a fee of CZK 4.1 million, However, before the decision was final, a special jurisdictional panel found that the competence over the matter at hand fell within the purview of the Energy Regulatory Office and the proceedings before the Decin District Court were stopped, but the court refused to return 20% of the fees Mondi paid – CZK 820,000."
The Constitutional Court found that Mondi had followed the rules set by the state authorities and could not be held responsible for the fact that there was a disagreement between those authorities regarding the competence to resolve the dispute. The Court held, therefore, that failing to refund the full court fee violated Mondi's fundamental right to a fair trial and the right to own property.”
Glatzova & Co’s team included Partner Erik Kolan and Lawyer Filip Murar.
