The Client as charterer applied to Interlegal for legal assistance in vessel re-bareboat chartering due to her unlawful withdrawal by the Shipowner.

The Client and the Shipowner concluded Bareboat Charter, whereunder the Client fulfilled its obligations in full and in due time. Bareboat Charter prescribes an exhaustive list of reasons for vessel withdrawal followed by cancellation of the charter party itself. Apart from prescribed grounds, the charter party may be deemed as cancelled only under the court decision.

Stating that the Client violated its obligations, the Shipowner decided to withdraw the vessel and to cancel the charter party without legal grounds, since alleged violations are not included into the list of reasons for cancellation of the charter party.
Later the Shipowner committed unlawful actions, such as asset inventory on board of the vessel, access for state authorities in order to inspect the vessel, followed by forced disembarkation of crew members.

Interlegal lawyers analyzed documents and situation in whole, consulted the Client upon presence/absence of grounds for cancellation of the charter party and vessel withdrawal, drafted and submitted to the Shipowner a reply to notification on cancellation of the charter party and vessel withdrawal and hold negotiations with the Shipowner, resulting in vessel return to the Client jointly with supporting documents.

Interlegal senior associates Ellina Romanova and Vitalii Tolstik and lawyer Irina Yakimovskaya led the case.
