Cobalt successfully represented AS Ragn-Sells in a dispute with the City of Tallinn regarding waste transport in the city's Nomme and Lasnamae neighborhoods.
Ragn-Sells contested the unlawful activities of the City of Tallinn in organizing the waste transport in Tallinn’s Nomme and Lasnamae boroughs.
The Supreme Court found that the City of Tallinn had unlawfully transferred the waste transport service to a city-owned AS Tallinna Jaatmete Taaskasutuskeskus (TJT, Tallinn Recycling Center) and had failed to organise the public procurement required for the provision of a waste transport service. In addition, the awarded procurement contracts, where the original contractor was replaced with TJT, were declared null and void and the city was ordered to organize the proper public procurement to find the waste transport service provider.
The Cobalt team was led by Senior Associate Rauno Ligi and included Senior Associate Kaidi Reiljan-Sihvart. The team was supported by Partner Elo Tamm.
Earlier this year, Cobalt successfully represented AS Ragn-Sells in a similar dispute involving the waste transport area of Tallinn’s Kesklinn borough as reported by CEE Legal Matters on July 5, 2018.
