Our Dispute Resolution team represented the client in the court of the appellate instance where the case was heard at the oral hearing.
Several users of our client deposit system manager, Užstato Sistemos Administratorius, challenged the fees established by the client that should be paid by the manufacturers and importers in order to cover the costs of participation in the deposit system that relates to the management of one-way packaging waste collected under the system and its administration.
The case related to the questions whether the fees established by the client were sufficiently substantiated as well as whether the fees did not provide prohibited cross-financing among different types of packages.
