Skrastiņš & Dzenis team represented BAB FlyLAL – Lithuanian Airlines (company under insolvency) in a case of recognition and enforcement of a judgement made by a Lithuanian court. With the respective judgement the Lithuanian court ordered interim measures to be implemented against national Latvian airline AS AirBaltic and Riga International airport – 100% Latvian state-owned company.
The case went through all three court instances. During the litigation process the Supreme Court of the Republic of Latvia made a reference to the Court of Justice of the European Union, where the oral hearing took place in May, 2014 and our client was represented by senior partner, attorney-at-law Verners Skrastiņš. Advocate General’s opinion, which was favourable to our client, was delivered on 4 July, 2014. The judgement of the Court of Justice of the European Union also was favourable to our client.
The final judgement by the Supreme Court of the Republic of Latvia was delivered in December 2015.
