The Riga office of Sorainen has represented Danish furniture and home decor retailer JYSK before Latvia’s Constitutional Court, Competition Council, and Ministry of Economics regarding the government-imposed restrictions on commerce at shopping centers.

According to Sorainen, JYSK argued that the restrictions on shopping centers exceeding 7,000 square meters distorted competition in the market in Latvia and led to unequal treatment between objectively comparable undertakings. According to Sorainen, as a result of JYSK’s dialogue with the relevant governmental authorities, commerce at large shopping malls was authorized under alternative measures proposed by the firm.

Sorainen’s team consisted of Partners Ieva Andersone and Andris Taurins, Senior Associates Alisa Leskovica, Marika Grunte, and Viktorija Smirnova-Cerkasa, and Associates Viktorija Soneca, Anna Bogdanova and Linards Abelite.
