Hillmont Partners has successfully defended the interests of Delta Wilmar Ukraine in a dispute with the State Environmental Inspectorate of Ukraine.
According to Hillmont Partners, “the State Environmental Inspectorate accused Delta Wilmar Ukraine of violating the norms set by environmental legislation and demanded a complete cessation of economic activity of the enterprise, the value of which stands at USD 335 million as of today. The litigation process lasted for almost two years. Finally, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Delta Wilmar Ukraine, ending a long-running business conflict with the regulator.”
Delta Wilmar Ukraine, which is part of the Wilmar International transnational agro-industrial corporation, is a Ukrainian producer of tropical oils and oilseeds.
Hillmont Partners adds that “Delta Willmar Ukraine will be able to continue its activities and avoid multi-million dollar losses during the forced downtime, while saving more than 600 jobs.”
Hillmont Partners’ team included Counsel Igor Pugaiko and Senior Associate Liudmyla Boiko.
