TGS Baltic has successfully represented Lithuanian Airports in a dispute with the Active Construction Management over major repairs carried out in Vilnius Airport.
Lithuanian Airports is a state enterprise which manages Vilnius, Kaunas, and Palanga airports.
According to TGS Baltic, “the dispute ensued after Active Construction Management brought a statement of claim on cancellation of offsets, recognition of withholding of monetary funds as unlawful, award of the debt and default interest for additional works.” The firm reported that, “Lithuanian Airports lodged a counterclaim against Active Construction Management for award of penalties.”
On November 13, 2020, the Supreme Court of Lithuania rejected the cassation appeal of Active Construction Management and upheld the judgments delivered by lower courts, rejecting the statement of claim of Active Construction Management and upholding the counterclaim of Lithuanian Airports in full.
TGS Baltic’s team consisted of Associate Partners Zydrune Stuglyte and Karolis Smaliukas and Associate Berta Kasetaite.
