Interlegal successfully settled an issue concerning payment of freight under the charter party
The dispute arose between the shipowner and the charterer – a large cargo owner, the client of Interlegal, due to diffusiveness of payment of freight clause in the fixture recap. Besides, 2 versions of the charter party were signed by the parties at different time.
Interlegal performed a complex analysis of English court and arbitral practice in respect of interpretation of recap and charter party provisions, governing freight payment.
Interlegal efficiently elaborated the substantiation of the charterer’s position and the dispute was settled with due regard to the charterer’s interests.
Associated partner of Interlegal Natalya Myroshnychenko and lawyer Ekaterina Gadetskaya worked on the case.
