Sorainen has successfully defended the interests of the Union of Lithuanian Journalists and other journalists in a case investigated by Lithuania’s Supreme Administrative Court regarding defense of that country's constitutional right to receive, collect, and share information.

According to Sorainen, "the Union of Lithuanian Journalists and other concerned journalists went to court when the Office of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania refused to make available, and later deleted, the record of a ministers’ meeting that took place in October 2018, during which ministers discussed a new project on the Law on Public information. The court stated that the Office violated the rights of journalists to receive, collect, and share information." According to the firm, "this order by the Court is final and unappealable. Even though the proceedings regarding the deleted record were terminated due to the fact that it is impossible to restore it, the court acknowledged the fact that during the time when journalists asked for a record it did exist, but the Office still refused to make it available."

Sorianen's team consisted of Senior Associate Kestutis Svirinas and Associate Domante Lunyte.
