Debt recovery upon quay dues

20 ноября 2017 г.: ru 1 всего: 1 14.06.16

The Client, a ship-building company, applied to Interlegal for representation of interests in respect of debt recovery against foreign-going vessels upon quay dues.


The debt arose due to vessels lay up at the Client’s berths against the shipowner’s guarantee to pay the quay dues and costs for electricity in full under the invoices issued under the parties’ agreement and pursuant to the law. Since the amounts invoiced remained unpaid, the Client had to file a claim to the court seeking to defense of its lawful rights. At the court proceedings, the debtor did not deny the fact of vessels’ berthing but insisted that quay dues should be calculated at the lower rate applied to coasting, not foreign-going vessels.


During the court proceedings, Interlegal experts managed to prove the foreign-going status of the vessels and lawfulness of the Client’s claims as the berth user. Claims upon payment of quay dues and costs for electricity were satisfied in full by the court of first instance.


Karyna Gorovaya and Olena Ptashenchuk, Interlegal lawyers, worked upon the case.
