Interlegal has successfully settled the dispute between the seller, the buyer and the ship owner during sunflower oil sea transportation on almost $ 2 000 000. After the advance payment the sunflower oil lot was loaded on board of the vessel and sent at the initial buyer’s address.


defended the interests of the Swiss trade company specialized in sunflower oil export from Ukraine. The transaction problems arose when the initial buyer failed to pay cargo cost to the full extent within the contract term. In order to avoid significant financial losses the sellers decided to declare buyers’ default, to cancel the sale and purchase contract and to sell the cargo to another buyer. For that purpose the vessel was bound to another port.


The initial buyer in its turn considered that the default was declared illegally and claimed for the sunflower oil supply at its address with the threat to arrest the vessel chartered by the seller.


On defending the seller’s interests lawyers of Interlegal could persuade the conflict parties in unlawfulness of vessel arrest. Then the buyer objected its claims, the cargo was successfully delivered to the second buyer and the vessel left the port.


The Client of Interlegal evaluated the work, ‘We thank you for invaluable help in this matter’.


Mr. Dmitriy Zagorodnyuk, the lawyer of Interlegal, settled the claim under the general control of Mr. Artem Skorobogatov, the associate partner.
