Everlegal has successfully represented Agromino subsidiary Oliynikova Sloboda LLC before the Grand Chamber of the Supreme Court in a land lease-related dispute.
According to Everlegal, Oliynikova Sloboda LLC concluded a land lease agreement with the owner and, in 2015, registered the right to lease the land in the state register and subsequently used this land for the cultivation of agricultural crops.
In February 2018, the owner of the leased land together with a group of other landlords appealed the decisions of the state registrars on the registration of the client's right to lease their land plots to the so-called Anti-raider Commission under the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine. On the day of issuance of the relevant order by the Ministry, the right to lease the land plots of the complainants was registered by another tenant.
Oliynikova Sloboda LLC challenged in court both the order of the Ministry and the land lease agreements concluded with the new tenant. Everlegal reported that significant changes were introduced in resolving disputes regarding land leases by the Grand Chamber of the Supreme Court.
The Everlegal team was led by Counsel Svitlana Teterya.
