The Dispute Resolution team of Lithuania's Motieka & Audzevicius has successfully represented Lithuanian deposit system manager Uzstato Sistemos Administratorius before Lithuania's court of appeals.

According to Motieka & Audzevicius, "several users of our client [had] challenged the fees established by the client that should be paid by the manufacturers and importers in order to cover the costs of participating in the deposit system that relates to the management of one-way packaging waste collected under the system and its administration. The case related to the question [of] whether the fees established by the client were sufficiently substantiated [and] whether the fees did not provide prohibited cross-financing among different types of packages."

According to the firm, "the court supported our client’s position and dismissed the opposing parties’ claim [in full.]"
