Integrites has advised Flooring Industries Ltd Sarl on Ukrainian law elements of three cases against a Ukrainian debtor heard by German courts, helped with the collection of evidence for those cases, and then successfully represented Flooring Industries in recognition and enforcement proceedings of the German verdict in Ukrainian court.

Integrites describes Flooring Industries, which is based in Luxembourg, as "the leading global manufacturer of flooring products."

According to Integrites, "the recognition proceedings involved several novel issues for Ukrainian courts, such as recognition of a default judgment (which proved to be challenging due to the strict requirements of Ukrainian law regarding proper notification of the respondents) and concurrent recognition of the cost order."

“We believe this is the first case where a German judgment in commercial matters was recognized in Ukraine," commented Integrites Partner Dmytro Marchukov, who led the firm's team. "Apart from establishing a positive practice in Ukraine, it should also allow enforcement of the Ukrainian judgments in Germany based on the reciprocity principle in the future."

In addition to Marchukov, the firm's team included Counsel Serhii Uvarov, Senior Associate Yurii Korchev, and Associate Marta Hrunska.
