December 2012

AstapovLawyers International Law Group successfully represented its client, a major Kazakhstani grain company, in first tier proceedings of GAFTA arbitration in a dispute with an Italian processing company.

AstapovLawyers International Law Group successfully represented its client, a major Kazakhstani grain company, in first tier proceedings of GAFTA arbitration in a dispute with an Italian processing company.

The dispute arose as a result of groundless rejection of the goods by the Italian buyer upon their arrival at the port of discharge. Thereafter, the buyer decided to accept the delivered goods however withheld the payment in lieu of damages for alleged deficiencies in the quality of the goods. As the buyer has failed to demonstrate that a contractually agreed analysis of the quality of the goods was conducted at the port of discharge, the GAFTA Tribunal rejected the buyer's defense and awarded the Kazakhstani company with payment of the price of the goods.  

The case was handled by Eugene Blinov, –°ounsel with AstapovLawyers, and Khrystyna Kostiushko, Associate.
