Successful recognition of Belarussian court‘s judgement case in Lithuania

Our Dispute Resolution team has successfully represented the client in the Lithuanian Court of Appeals regarding recognition and enforcement of the judgement of the Vitebsk Region Economic Court of the Republic of Belarus in the Republic of Lithuania.

On 5th May 2021 Vitebsk Region Economic Court had awarded the client for over 450 thousand Belarussian RUB (over 160 thousand EUR) from the defendant. The client submitted a request to the Lithuanian Court of Appeals to recognize and enforce the judgment in the Republic of Lithuania. Lithuanian Court of Appeals, denied the defendant’s arguments that the judgment of the Vitebsk Region Economic Court is biased and should be rejected to recognized due to sanctions against third parties, not connected to the client.

Lithuanian Court of Appeals acknowledged, that the judgment of the Vitebsk Region Economic Court is recognizable and enforceable in the Republic of Lithuania. This is an important victory for the client proving Lithuanian courts continue to respect the rule of law.
