Experts of Interlegal, acting in the Client’s interests, filed a claim to the Ukrainian court in order to recover freight payable and liquidated damages for delay in cargo receipt and return of containers (demurrage/detention). Total claim amount exceeded $95.000.


Since the disputes upon recovery of liquidated damages in maritime law are not the ordinary practice for Ukrainian courts, in the process of case consideration representatives provided the necessary clarifications and explanations in respect of expanded scope of persons being responsible for payment of services rendered by the line carriers. Furthermore, the court considered in details the issue of the procedure of demurrage/detention accrual and calculation.


The following fact arouses particular interest: despite consideration of the dispute by the Ukrainian court, the dispute was considered under the English law pursuant to the Jurisdiction Clause set forth in the Terms of carriage.


Having studied the submitted claims and explanations of representatives, the court has satisfied the claim in full. Experts of Interlegal team, Karyna Gorovaya and Alexander Chebotarenko, worked upon the case.
