Representing a Luxembourg holding in a corporate dispute under the LCIA Rules.
The dispute arose after the Cyprus company breached its payment obligations under three agreements for the sale and purchase of shares in Cyprus companies that hold shares in Russian companies, that, in turn, owned large properties in the territory of Russia.
We launched a search for the respondent’s assets and initiated proceedings before the courts of various jurisdictions seeking interim relief in support of the arbitration.
We secured interim relief in Cyprus: all of the respondent’s assets for the amount of the dispute were attached.
We succeeded in having the client’s claims fully satisfied in the arbitration.
After the arbitral award, the parties settled on mutually beneficial terms. The settlement agreement was fulfilled.
