VB Partners has successfully defended the interests of Scania Ukraine in a dispute with a dealer, worth UAH 123 million.

According to VB Partners, “At the end of 2019, one of Scania’s dealers filed a lawsuit against the company to recover UAH 123 million of alleged lost profit and service fees. In September of 2020, a judge of the Commercial Court of Kyiv oblast satisfied the claim in full, despite the complete lack of evidence. A week later, the judge, who made the controversial decision, resigned. That prevented the High Council of Justice from opening proceedings at Scania’s complaint.” 

Further, according to the firm, “the appellate court, composed of various panels, considered Scania’s complaint against this decision for eight months. On June 24, 2021, the Northern Commercial Court of Appeal overturned the decision of the first instance and collected court fees in the amount of more than UAH 1 million from the dealer.”

VB Partners’ team was led by Attorneys Oleksandr Lukianenko and Stanislav Yena.

Editorial Note: On October 23, 2021, VB Partners announced that the "Supreme Court confirmed the unlawfulness of the judgment as taken by the court of first instance to recover UAH 123 million from Scania Ukraine."
