Representing the Latvian Government in administrative court proceedings for cancellation of privatization of historically important real estate

2014-11-27

COBALT is representing the Cabinet of Ministers in administrative court proceedings about a decision by the Cabinet to annul a decision that allowed privatization of an historically valuable tennis court located in a prestigious location of Riga – Kronvalda park. The Cabinet decided to terminate the process of privatization already under way as the real estate had become necessary for the National Theatre of Latvia to fulfil its functions. The Cabinet decision was appealed by a private company that was about to acquire the real estate. The Cabinet was represented in the administrative court proceedings exclusively by COBALT and the judgments of both the court of first instance and the court of appeal were in favour of the Cabinet.
