The Client, large ship repair enterprise, filed a request to Interlegal on debt recovery for ship repair. The Debtor ignored the Client’s claims on debt payment for duly performed works.
Due to breach of the Debtor’s payment obligation, Interlegal had to file the claim on debt recovery to the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
This request was based on the right of claim assignment agreement. Interlegal lawyers justified the fact of arbitration clause covering the party – assignee of the right of claim under the initial ship repair contract. The Debtor (foreign entity) is also recognized as bankrupt under the location country law. Interlegal proved the Claimant’s right to choose the method of defending its rights and interests, by means of dispute settlement under the Contract terms and conditions.
On the grounds of justified claims and proper evidence, ICAC at the UCCI agreed with Interlegal claims and satisfied the lawsuit in full.
Interlegal senior lawyer Karyna Gorovaya and lawyer Vitalii Tolstik led the case.
