Asters has successfully defended PrivatBank before the Solomianskiy District Court against a claim of unlawful personal data usage by Igor Kolomoiskyi, seeking the invalidation of agreements between PrivatBank and the National Bank of Ukraine.
According to Asters, "Kolomoiskyi's attorneys filed the claim in December 2017, arguing that counsel for PrivatBank and the NBU allegedly used Kolomoiskyi's personal data without his consent during the performance of the agreements being challenged." The firm announced that the Court dismissed Igor Kolomoiskyi’s claim against PrivatBank, the NBU, the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, and their counsel for a second time: "the Court found that the plaintiff failed to address the deficiencies of their statement of claim, as established by the Court in January 2020."
Asters had again filed "an application for leaving the claim undecided. The Court concluded that the plaintiff was required to properly perform his procedural obligations. However, neither the plaintiff nor his authorized representatives took any measures to address the deficiencies of the statement of claim, as established by the Court as early as January 2020," the firm reported.
The Asters team included Partner Andriy Pozhidayev, Senior Associates Oleksiy Ukolov and Natalia Mysnyk, and Associate Andriy Tyshchenko.
