Integrites has represented Metro Cash & Carry Ukraine in a dispute with a former energy supplier who filed a claim against one of the company's stores demanding that it be fined for changing its electricity supplier.

A firm press statement explained that both the “Law of Ukraine on the Electricity Market and Directive 2009/72/EC on the common rules for the internal market in electricity are in effect in Ukraine. They provide consumers with an opportunity to voluntarily choose and change the electric power supplier. At the same time, controversial norms in by-laws make possible attempts of many suppliers to collect fines from their former customers.”

“The goal of Integrites and our clients is to develop the relevant court practice in a way that will make it impossible to punish those consumers who use their right to change their energy supplier,” commented Integrites Partner Oleksandr Onishchenko.

Aside from Onishchenko, the Integrites team working on the case included Senior Associates Serhii Rymar and Anton Kaganets.
