The Client – shipbuilding enterprise filed a request to Interlegal regarding representation of interests due to debt recovery upon quay dues from the foreign-going vessels.

Debt occurred due to vessel stay at the enterprise berths against shipowner’s guarantee to pay quay dues and power supply costs in full, under the issued invoices. Invoices have been issued with the parties consent and in compliance with law but payment has not been made. In order to defend its legal rights, the Client had to apply to the court.

Both first instance court and court of appeal considered the case. In the process of case consideration, Interlegal experts proved the foreign-going vessel status and lawfulness of the Client’s claims as berth user. First instance court satisfied claims on quay dues and power supply costs exceeding 1,800,000.00 UAH. Court of appeal upheld the first instance court decision.

Having contested such court conclusions, shipowner filed an application to the Supreme Economic Court of Ukraine against these decisions.

At the cassation proceedings, Interlegal lawyers defended the Client’s interests in full.

Interlegal lawyers Karyna Gorovaya and Olena Ptashenchuk led the case.
