Representation in cross-border litigation regarding non-standard guarantee contract

Motieka & Audzevičius team successfully represented Baltijos stiklas in cross-border litigation before Vilnius Regional Court regarding the breach of the Guarantee agreement, sham transactions, and repayment of the debt.

This case is a continuation of another important dispute related to non-standard, specifically modified forms of guarantees and issues on public interest in case of bank failure. In this case, the claimant makes references to preliminary facts, contractual jurisdiction and litigates against the quasi-state entity.

During the lockdown, Motieka & Audzevičius managed to persuade the court to organize virtual hearings via IT-solutions, provided by Motieka & Audzevičius. This was a very important intermediate victory against respondent’s delay strategy of the case.

After 7 oral hearings, the court of the first instance established that Baltijos stiklas‘ claim is well-sounded and satisfied it. The counterclaim of the respondent and the claim of the third person in the case were rejected establishing that arguments of Baltijos stiklas are duly based on the prejudicial decision and that respondent acts contrary to its procedural rights.
