Eterna Law has persuaded the Supreme Court of Ukraine to recognize and enforce a disclosure order issued by the High Court of Justice of England and Wales on behalf of client Soufflet Negoce SA.
Eterna Law describes the ruling as "a landmark court decision which establishes a new practice regarding the recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in Ukraine."
The Supreme Court approved the ruling of the court of appeal that the enforcement of a foreign judgment against a person who was not a formal party to foreign court proceedings is permissible. The court concurred that the defendant as the officer of the original debtor company was bound by the disclosure order by way of having been named in the penal notice.
The team of Eterna Law was led by Partner Eugene Blinov with support of Senior Associate Roman Protsyshyn.
