Walless has advised the Vilnius City Municipality Administration on a case concerning the legality of the termination of the Lazdynai swimming pool construction contract.
According to Walless, "the case raised questions about the liability of the joint venture partners for the continued performance of the contract when one of the joint venture partners goes bankrupt."
"The first attempt to build the Lazdynai pool was unsuccessful for many reasons, despite all the efforts made by the city," Vilnius City Administration Director Povilas Poderskis commented. "After signing the contract with this [new] contractor, we have no questions: the pool will be completed and the contract will be fulfilled on time. This will fix the shame left by the previous contractors and, if the pandemic is over, we will be able to play sports in the pool already in 2022."
The Walless team included Partners Laura Ziferman and Simona Drukteiniene, Associate Partner Renata Jatuzyte-Muleviciene, and Associate Giedre Banyte.
