The Client, large Ukrainian freight forwarder, applied to Interlegal upon further dispute settlement with line carriers regarding container demurrage.

Having fulfilled its obligations under the contract with the consignor, the Client booked place on board of vessels for line carriage of timber from Odessa to Alexandria.

Although the cargo was delivered to destination port in due time, the consignee failed to take it, which caused demurrage accrual for the cargo storage upon expiry of laycan. Case specification was freight payment by non-resident parent company.

Having analyzed the documents and the situation in whole, Interlegal lawyers drafted legal opinion upon further dispute settlement with line carriers regarding container demurrage. In the legal opinion, Interlegal experts assessed risks of filing line carriers’ claims against the Client and the parent company upon container demurrage recovery and storage, analyzed jurisdiction and specifications of such dispute settlement, described the procedure for judicial consideration of disputes against the Client and the parent company, assessed the line carriers’ right to withhold cargo under other commercial contracts and drafted the Client’s legal position.

Interlegal lawyer Irina Yakimovskaya, junior lawyer Nikita Kocherba, under the general supervision of associate attorney Ellina Romanova, led the case.
