DLA Piper and Kirm Perpar have successfully represented the Slovenian municipality of Kranjska Gora in an arbitration proceeding adjudicated at the Vienna International Arbitration Center against WTE Wassertechnik GmbH, a German supplier for municipal and industrial water management.
According to DLA Piper, the dispute was initiated by WTE against Kranjska Gora in 2017 subsequent to the expiry of the concession for the municipal sewage system. After three years of arbitration proceedings, the VIAC seated tribunal decided in favor of Kranjska Gora and dismissed the claims brought by WTE against the municipality in their entirety.
DLA Piper’s team included Partners Jasna Zwitter-Tehovnik and Andreas Daxberger and Associates Manca Kisovec and Andreas Winkler.
Kirm Perpar’s team included Partners Matej Perpar and Jan Gorjup and Senior Associate Ajda Okrslar.
