Hillmont Partners defended the interests of Delta Wilmar Ukraine
Hillmont Partners’ lawyers won a convincing victory in favour of Delta Wilmar Ukraine LLC in a dispute with the State Environmental Inspectorate of Ukraine.
The State Environmental Inspectorate accused Delta Wilmar Ukraine LLC of violating the norms set by environmental legislation and demanded a complete cessation of economic activity of the enterprise, the value of which stands at USD 335 million as of today. The litigation process lasted almost two years. Finally, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of Delta Wilmar Ukraine LLC, ending a long-running business conflict with the regulator.
Delta Willmar Ukraine will be able to continue its activities and avoid multi-million dollar losses during the forced downtime, while saving more than 600 jobs.
Liudmyla Boiko, senior associate, and Igor Pugaiko, counsel at Hillmont Partners, represented the client’s interests in court.
