Sorainen has successfully represented the insolvent credit union Taupkase (under the administration of Klaipedos Administratoriu Biuras) in a dispute with employees over the amount of downtime pay and termination compensation they are due.

According to Sorainen, "the employees claimed that bonuses paid should be included when calculating the average wage. The court found in favor of our client, stating that it was lawful not to include bonuses when calculating the average wage of employees."

The Sorainen team was led by Partner Kestutis Svirinas, working with Senior Associate Kazimieras Karpickis and Associate Greta Kubiliunaite. The same team also successfully represented the company in a case regarding whether a share can be recognized as a deposit.
