The court charged a record reimbursement for legal assistance. The compensation in the amount of UAH 992 000 will be received by our client Scania Ukraine. This foreign investor is the world`s leading supplier of trucks, buses and engines for heavy transport.
The case concerned the efforts of a dishonest counterparty to collect from the client the allegedly lost profit and dealer’s remuneration in the amount of UAH 164 million. At the end of the last year, the court of appeal issued a final decision in favor of the investor.
The court explained its position regarding such a significant, as for Ukraine, amount of compensation by the «high competence» of the attorneys, who «have been repeatedly recognized by international ratings… and have annual awards in various spheres of legal practice».
In course of case consideration, the attorneys of VB PARTNERS:
- carried out an analysis of the Client’s multi-level relationship with dealers, the peculiarities of the corporate software operation;
- proved the bias of the statements of the former management of Scania Ukraine in favor of the dealer;
- after examining more than 90 volumes of primary documentation, proved the groundlessness of the conclusions of the economic examination about the alleged losses;
- attracted the attention of the Verkhovna Rada, the Embassy of Sweden, representatives of the business community and mass media, etc.
This complex project was led by VB PARTNERS` partner Oleksandr Lukyanenko and attorney Stanislav Yena, as well as lawyers from KPMG and Hillmont Partners.
And this is not the first dispute that Scania Ukraine has won with the support of VB PARTNERS` attorneys.
Our team takes difficulties as a challenge. We are always ready to fight hard for the interests of our clients!
