Our firm represented the client before the Lithuanian Court of Appeal in a dispute regarding a public procurement procedure. Two main questions were of the main concern in the case: the sound application of law norms regulating unreasonably low tenders and the merits of the burden of proof to justify an unreasonably low tender price. The firm assisted the company by, inter alia, preparing court documents, gathering evidence, representing the company before the court.
Partner Ramūnas Audzevičius comments: “Unreasonably low tenders in public procurement procedures is serious problem that rises a lot of legal disputes. Such tenders might distort fair competition in public tendering procedure and might ultimately be harmful to the purchasing authority if the economic operator fails to complete its contractual obligations under unreasonably low price. Therefore, the sound application of law norms regulating unreasonably low tenders is a significant question.”
