Andra Rubene on challenging decisions of the state notary of the Enterprise Register

Andra Rubene

In April 3, 2012 issue of newspaper “Dienas Bizness” attorney at law Andra Rubene from law office TARK GRUNTE SUTKIENE comments on the tendency of decrease in the number of the challenged decisions issued by the state notary of the Enterprise Register. The attorney at law points out that having evaluated the perspective length, resources and result of litigation, it is advantageous to administratively challenge a decision of the state notary only in case the established defect preventing effective registration in the Commercial Register cannot be easily eliminated. In cases when the allegedly established defect can be easily eliminated, business persons in order to save time and resources will typically eliminate this defect without challenging the decision, also in such cases when they will not agree with the opinion of the Enterprise Register.

As a separate reason for the decrease in the appealed decisions, Andra Rubene indicates that assessment of facts and resolution of disputes between shareholders of capital companies do not fall in the competence of the Enterprise Register and administrative courts, but should be heard in civil courts.
