Sorainen's Lithuanian office has successfully represented Ekonovus in a lawsuit brought by utility company VSA Vilnius, which was seeking to suspend the implementation of a EUR 16.3 million contract for waste transportation in the Vilnius city center.

According to Sorainen, "VSA Vilnius sought to prove that the amount of the bid submitted by Ekonovus was ‒ so they alleged ‒ abnormally low and unreasonable, and that the decision to award the contract to the company should be reversed. However, Vilnius Municipality argued that suspension of the contract with Ekonovus would harm the public interest. The Court of Appeal agreed with the municipality’s arguments and acknowledged that urgent provision of services was important in the public interest."

The Sorainen team was led by Partner Laurynas Lukosiunas and included Senior Associate Zilvinas Briedis and Associate Domantas Putrius.
