Sorainen has successfully persuaded both a first instance court and a court of appeals in Lithuania to dismiss an action for damages brought by a customer and the customer's insurers against international packaging systems producer Slootweg Machinefabriek.

According to Sorainen, "our client’s customer and its insurers sought to prove that the quality of the product sold by our client was faulty and caused a fire ‒ the total amount of the claim amounted to EUR 420,000. The purchaser claimed compensation to cover the portion of the price paid for the product ‒ which their insurers refused to compensate ‒ and for losses incurred as a result of the fire. The insurance company filed an independent action against our client claiming reimbursement of losses by way of subrogation."

The Sorainen team consisted of Partner Zygimantas Pacevicius and Associate Ausra Gaurytė.
