Glimstedt's litigation team has successfully represented the Estonian Competition Authority against AS Tallinna Vesi in a complex tariff dispute before the Tallinn Circuit Court.

By its ruling of January 26, 2017, the Tallinn Circuit Court dismissed in full the appeal lodged by AS Tallinna Vesi in the tariff dispute between the company and the Competition Authority. Additionally, the court ordered the company to pay the procedural expenses of the Competition Authority in the amount of EUR 40,000.

Glimstedt Partner Marko Tiiman said that the dispute (which the firm described as "highly complicated and unprecedented" was the first time in the Estonian legal field where price fixing by monopolies had been controlled by the courts on such a scale. According to the firm, "although Tallinna Vesi has got a right to submit its cassation to the Supreme Court, Mr. Tiiman is very pleased that the first and second instance court have agreed with the arguments of the Competition Authority."

The Glimstedt team was led by both Tiiman and Indrek Leppik, assisted by Junior Associates Erko-Andreas Roosik and Juri-Karl Leppik.
