AstapovLawyers protects the interests of the OBI hypermarket chain in court

February 2012

The lawyers of AstapovLawyers International Law Group have successfully protected the interests of Do It Yourself Ukraine LLC, a company operating a hypermarket chain under the brand OBI, in the Kyiv Commercial Court.

The dispute was caused by one of the suppliers who failed to fulfill its obligations under a contract with the retail chain. According to the contract and agreement of the parties OBI returned some goods to the supplier, and the supplier had to pay for such returned goods.

However, starting from September 2009, the supplier systematically refused to pay for the goods previously returned by OBI. As a result, at the end of the summer of 2010, the supplier’s total debt before the retail chain had grown to around UAH 200 thousand.

The lawyers of AstapovLawyers successfully represented the interests of Do It Yourself Ukraine LLC in court, thanks to which the judgment was delivered in favour of the Client (OBI).

Oleh Gryn, a lawyer at AstapovLawyers, commented on the judgment as follows: “This victory is of huge importance to us because we actually represented the interests of foreign investors in Ukraine. However, any favourable judgment would have been impossible without the effective and professional work of the team of lawyers who did their best to protect the interests of a European company.”
