Motieka & Audzevicius has helped Donatas Aleksandravicius, the owner of the Ds Byggeri construction company, file an indemnification claim against Denmark at the ICSID.
Donatas Aleksandravicius is seeking compensation for damage caused by protestors at his company’s construction site in Copenhagen and related financial harm under the Lithuania-Denmark bilateral investment treaty.
According to Motieka & Audzevicius, “Aleksandravicius and Ds Byggeri filed an initial notice of arbitration in February but opted to then negotiate with the Danish government, a process that was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and resulting lock down. However, in July the Danish Ministry of Justice wrote a letter to Motieka & Audzevicius Partner Rimantas Daujotas saying that the government rejected Aleksandravicius’ claim and his settlement proposal. Denmark’s refusal to negotiate prompted him to file the more recent request for arbitration that has now been registered by ICSID.”
Motieka & Audzevicius’s team was led by Partner Rimantas Daujotas and included Denis Parchajev.
