A large shipping company applied to Interlegal regarding London Maritime Arbitrators’ Association (LMAA) arbitration proceedings against it.

The Claimant, as the charterer of vessel owned by our Client, applied to arbitration for damage recovery due to improper cargo storage conditions, in the amount exceeding USD 100,000.

Although the Client had evidence of proper transportation, they were not required for case proceedings. Interlegal experts proved that the application to arbitration was filed with obvious violations of procedural rules and terms, while composition of the arbitral tribunal did not comply with agreement of the parties.

As a result, the arbitrators ruled that they had no jurisdiction to consider this dispute on the merits of the stated claims, as well as awarded the Claimant to reimburse all the Defendant’s expenses in case proceedings.

Interlegal lawyers Ganna Liakhova and Mykola Kozachenko led the case.
