Professional implementation of expertise and proper judicial strategy building resulted in successful protection of interests of one of the biggest national high precision outfit producer (particularly in defense industry) by Sergii Koziakov and Partners Law Firm in the International Commercial Arbitration Court at the Ukrainian Chamber of Commerce and Industry (the ICAC).

The execution of the contract as well as further representation of client’s interests in the ICAC were complicated by direct influence of political tension between two states on their foreign economic relations and adoption of political and economic acts by the competent authorities of respective states in defense sphere.

Legal protection of Clients’s interests was provided by Managing Partner Mykola Podpalov, Counsellor Olena Hladyuk and Senior Lawyer Vitaliy Varenyk .
