  • CHANGES TO PPA: TO MAKE FINANCIAERS HAPPY

    Over the last few months before January 2018, when the latest changes to the power purchase agreements (PPAs) between State Enterprise “Energorynok” and producers of energy from alternative sources were adopted, more than ten agreements were signed with upgraded conditions set earlier in 2017. In the mentioned agreements, the changes to the PPAs were applied and helped bring Ukraine’s PPAs closer to international standards. Nevertheless, the revised PPAs still have a lot of issues that need to be clarified and further elaborated to make them perfectly bankable, and to make them properly executable.

  • Disputes arising from finance arrangements: post-crisis phenomenon in Ukraine – read more!

    The 2008 financial crisis peak had hardly faded away, when another breaking news was brought to the surface in CIS countries: a significant part of the funds advanced during the pre-crisis period by banks and other financial institutions to support various businesses and commercial initiatives, flew beyond national frontiers to be found in Panama, BVI, Seychelles, Jersey, Cyprus and other offshore and onshore jurisdictions in the pockets of numerous private persons, mostly CIS nationals. No surprise this fact led to a tsunami of disputes, one way or the other related to repayment of loans and funds advanced under other types of finance arrangements. Many of those disputes are still pending, thus, keeping finance arrangements among the top-litigated issues within CIS borders.
  • Proper notices in arbitration – watch the details!

    Article V1(b) of the Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards, better known as the New York Convention, provides that recognition and enforcement of a foreign arbitral award may be refused, at the request of the party against which it is invoked, only if that party furnishes proof to the competent authority where the recognition and enforcement is sought that it was not given proper notice of the appointment of the arbitrator or of the arbitration proceedings. However simple at first glance, the question of what constitutes 'proper notice' turns out to be less than clear in practice.
