Successfully represented a public non-profit deposit system administrator

Our team has successfully represented a public non-profit non-profit deposit system administration institution Užstato Sistemos Administratorius before the District Court of Vilnius City. The institution manages the entire deposit system in Lithuania, starting with collection of the packaging waste and ending with it being recycled.

The dispute arose due to standard conditions of contract between the deposit system administrator and a claimant, a manufacturer of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages. The whole deposit system unites almost 300 manufacturers and importers and only one of them claimed that the contract conditions were resulting in substantial inequality of the parties involved and accordingly, they requested that the provisions of contract be changed. After hearing the arguments of both parties, the Court has rejected the full scope of the claim resulting in the victory of our client.

The case is important for the development of the whole deposit system of Lithuania.
