Sorainen and Cobalt have successfully represented buyer UAB Mezon and seller Lietuvos Radijo ir Televizijos Centras, respectively, before the Supreme Administrative Court of Lithuania in a dispute against Telia Lietuva over the transfer of frequencies together with the sold Mezon business.

Mezon is an internet service provider.

According to Sorainen, “in 2020, after Bite Grup company UAB Mezon acquired the business operating under the Mezon brand from LRTC for EUR 30 million, Telia appealed against the authorization for the transfer of frequencies together with the business granted by the Communications Regulatory Authority. After almost two years of litigation, the court made a final and non-appealable decision, rejecting Telia’s complaint as completely unfounded.”

Furthermore, according to Cobalt, the court "recognized that Lietuvos Radijo ir Televizijos Centras “could transfer the radio frequencies to UAB Mezon” and that the radio frequencies “formed an essential part of the transferred LRTC internet services business Mezon.”

Sorainen’s team included Partners Laimonas Skibarka, Kestutis Svirinas, Daivis Svirinas, and Monika Malisauskaite-Vaupsiene, Counsel Stasys Drazdauskas, Senior Associate Ieva Rimaviciene, Associate Ausrine Dambrauskaite, and Assistant Lawyers Klaudijus Baronas, Vincas Sniute, and Laura Mackevic.

Cobalt’s team included Partners Elijus Burgis and Rasa Zasciurinskaite and Senior Lawyers Justinas Sileika and Julija Aleska.
