Representing a big sanitary engineering supplier in a 15-million RUB commercial dispute

Our client, a big sanitary engineering supplier, delivered goods to a contractor (a construction depot) for an approximate sum of RUB 24M. The goods were paid partially only. When the client understood that the construction depot wouldn’t repay the debt of its own free will, he addressed «Kachkin & Partners» law firm for assistance.

The firm’s specialists prepared and initiated a lawsuit against the construction depot for debt collection for the goods and compensatory interest for the use of money. The dispute sum amounted to approximately 15 million RUB. In court the respondent said he didn’t have to pay the goods because of the supply agreement condition concerning the goods payment only after their sell-off though the goods hadn’t been sold by the ultimate consumer yet.

«Kachkin & Partners» associates convinced courts of all instances that the construction depot’s obligation was created after the goods had been transferred to it. The courts recognized the condition of the goods payment after the sell-off non-consensual and not resulting in legal effects.

Moreover, before the end of the process in court of cassation «Kachkin & Partners» associates received the enforcement order and succeeded with money transferring to the client’s bank account.
