Nove has successfully represented Europark Estonia before the Estonian Supreme Court in a dispute involving whether the parking manager's leaving a contractual penalty notice under a client's windshield wiper constitutes a reasonable way of delivery. The Court found that it was.
The defendant had parked in Europark Estonia's parking area and had failed to pay 11 parking penalties. The owner of the parking area left a notice under the windshield wiper of the defendant’s car every time, but according to the defendant no fines were received. The County Court found that Europark Estonia's constituted reasonable notice, but the Tallinn Circuit Court disagreed and reversed the decision.
The Supreme Court’s Civil Chamber ruled that, in these circumstances, delivering a notice in such a manner can be considered reasonable. The Supreme Court thus annulled the decision of the Circuit Court and sent the case for a new hearing.
The Nove team included Partners Arsi Pavelts and Urmas Volens.
