Ilyashev & Partners has successfully represented the Ukrrichflot Shipping Company before the Supreme Court of Ukraine in a dispute with JSC Ukrzaliznytsia, Ukrainian Railways.

According to Ilyashev & Partners, “in 2017 JSC Ukrzaliznytsia charged a fee from the shipowners for the lifting of railway bridge bearers during the passage of large-sized vessels along the Dnieper River - such lifting fee was unilaterally established by JSC Ukrzaliznytsia and, according to Ukrrichflot Shipping Company, was unjustified in principle.” 

Proceedings were initiated before the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine that led all the way to the Supreme Court. 

According to Ilyashev & Partners, in its ruling of November 14, 2019, the Supreme Court upheld the decision of the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine and the courts of first instance and appeal, finding “monopoly abuse by JSC Ukrzaliznytsia."

The Ilyashev & Partners team included Partner Oleksandr Fefelov and Counsel Valeiia Gudiy.
