Additional information about the service

Our lawyers specialize in different areas of litigation: civil and tort litigation, corporate litigation, administrative litigation which deals with disputes with controlling authorities as well as international arbitration.

Usually, protection of rights by means of commercial arbitration is proceeded by identification of proper arbitration institution that is authorized to resolve the dispute as well as determination of applicable substantive law. Significant experience of our attorneys allows to choose the most advantageous provision of applicable law in case when stipulations of client’s contact have unclear or ambiguous wording. And even in situation when applicable law of the particular country was not chosen, we can help to choose provisions of international law which are possible to be applied for the dispute resolution.

We do our best to avoid long lasting and expensive litigation which is among our major advantages. Our main task is to find options of pretrial settlement of dispute. In most situations, well reasoned and legally supported position reflected in the form of letter or complaint induces liable counterparty to discharge obligations in full or partially. Without any doubt our client benefits from this since he can get the desirable result in short term prospect.

Only when it is impossible to settle by pretrial means, we turn to court protection of rights which is proceeded by preliminary preparation of all the required evidence.

We can render services by entering litigation process at any stage, including stage of appeal or cassation as well as stage of enforcement of court decisions.

Also our services include support of enforcement of decisions of foreign courts in Ukraine including those concerning recognition and enforcement of decision of international commercial arbitration.
