Interlegal law team settled the dispute upon demurrage at the port of discharge
Interlegal teem succeeded in pretrial settlement of the Buyer’s claim against the Seller upon demurrage at the port of discharge.
The Client, a large exporter of agricultural products, applied to Interlegal for demurrage recovery in the amount of 40,000 USD charged by the container line at the Ho Chi Minh City port of discharge.
As per the Contract, the Client acted as the Buyer on CIF terms. At the time of vessel arrival with the cargo on board at the port of discharge, the Buyer found out that the documents provided by the Seller were partially incorrect, which prevented discharge and import of the goods. The process of re-issuing documents took much time, which cause idle stay for 16 days.
The Buyer paid demurrage charged by the container line and requested the Seller to reimburse such costs in full. For several months the Client negotiated with the Seller, without any success.
Before applying to GAFTA arbitration, it was decided to carry out claims handling with the seller.
Interlegal lawyers acted as the buyer’s representatives under the dispute, provided the Client’s solid position and kept contact with the Seller. Several weeks of negotiations with the Seller resulted in amicable agreement, whereunder the latter paid indebtedness in several installments.
Interlegal lawyer Valeria Ivanova represents the Client’s interests under claims handling.
