Sorainen has successfully represented Valdas Sarunas, a former manager of Lithuania's Kedainiu Aruodai grain collecting company, in the Lithuanian Court of Appeal, which upheld a first instance ruling in a case concerning damages related to company losses.

“Kedainiu Aruodai blamed former manager Valdas Sarunas for a bad harvest and related losses and claimed more than EUR 1 million in the Kaunas Regional Court,” Sorainen reports. “On October 11, 2018, the Court rejected the civil claim and ordered payment of almost EUR 15,000 of litigation costs. However, the claimant appealed against the judgment.”

According to Sorainen “the Court of Appeal dismissed the appeal and ordered Kedainiu Aruodai to pay the litigation costs. On October 30, 2019, the court decided in a final ruling that potential loss-making business transactions do not automatically mean that the manager had committed unlawful acts in the sense of civil liability.”

The Sorainen team included Partner Laurynas Lukosiunas and Associate Greta Kubiliunaite.
