Sorainen is representing 15min, a news website in Lithuania, in an appeal against a warning issued by Lithuania's State Consumer Rights Protection Authority commission.

According to Sorainen, “the warning was issued for using the name of Prime Minister Saulius Skvernelis in advertising the book Kabinetas 339 without consent and [in an] alleged violation of the Law on Advertising. 15min claims that the decision contradicts Lithuanian and European legal practice and freedom of expression. Additionally, the warning was imposed for reasons that were not mentioned in Prime Minister Skvernelis’ complaint.”

Sorainen’s team includes Partner Kestutis Svirinas, Senior Associate Irma Kirklyte, and Legal Assistant Auridas Litvinas.
