Our team has defended the interests of a public non-profit deposit system administration institution Užstato Sistemos Administratorius in contractual litigation in the Court of the appellate instance.
The claimant, a manufacturer of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages, claimed that the reverse vending machines, administered by the client, did not accept the packages used by it and demanded compensation for the resulting contractual damages. We proved to the court that the claim is groundless and no obligation by the client to make payments to the counterparty exists.
The case is the first in Lithuanian case law which set a precedent for analysis of whether the deposit system administrator has correctly fulfilled its duties to the manufacturer and importer.
After the full victory at the Court of the first instance, we achieved a successful result for our client in the Court of the appellate instance as well.
