Sorainen successfully represented businessman Mindaugas Marcinkevičius in a case heard at Vilnius Regional Court in which the client was accused because of public statements that he had made about his former business partner.

The court found that Mr Marcinkevičius’s opinion did not exceed the limits of tolerable criticism and rejected the claim by the plaintiff seeking a declaration that five statements by Mr Marcinkevičius in an article published in January 2017 on the news portal were out of line with reality and humiliating to the claimant’s honour and dignity.

The Sorainen team prepared court procedural documents and represented the client in court. The team ‒ led by partner Kęstutis Švirinas ‒ included associates Almina IvanauskaitėAušra GaurytėIeva Rimavičenė and legal assistant Lukas Borusevičius.
