Resolution of commercial disputes

    Collaborating with several counterparties is bound to give rise to disputes sooner or later. Some disputes are resolved by negotiations, while some others end up in claims and lawsuits in state commercial courts. We provide support for commercial disputes arising in various industries such as IT, pharmaceuticals, agriculture, oil and gas, FMCG.

Claim settlement

    In case of commercial disputes, the parties involved usually tend to exchange claims and responses to claims before going to court. Such procedure is now required even if contracts do not provide for the exchange of claims before going to court.

    Pre-trial dispute settlement helps saving litigation costs and keeping partnerships with suppliers and other counterparties. We assist companies at all stages of claim settlement starting from drafting contractual provisions, checking counterparties before entering into transactions, reviewing dispute backgrounds, analyzing dispute resolution prospects, drafting claims and handling litigation in court.

    We have become a strategic partner for many companies with foreign investments which require our services for dispute resolution.
