Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners successfully defend the interests of Nordic Yards Wismar GmbH

The Firm's dispute resolution team defended the interests of the large shipyard Nordic Yards Wismar GmbH (Wismar, Germany) in the ICAC in the RF CCI in a dispute with a customer - Baltic Shipyard - Shipbuilding.

"Baltiyskiy Zavod - Sudostroenie" applied to the ICAS at the RF Chamber of Commerce and Industry with a demand for Nordic Yards Wismar GmbH to transfer in full all the reporting documentation under the contract for the construction of an icebreaker superstructure.

Within a short timeframe, the lawyers of the Firm developed a strategy to protect the interests of the client and were able to convince the ICAC that the customer's claim is not based either on the contract or on the provisions of the law, and its satisfaction would actually entail  forced transfer of intermediate work results to the customer and complicate the construction.

Based on the results of the consideration of the case, the ICAC decided to refuse to satisfy the claim in full.

The interests of the client were represented by counsel Vera Richterman, senior lawyer Yulia Bobrova, junior lawyer Dmitry Mileshin under the leadership of partner Valery Eremenko.
