EGAP as a credit insurance corporation insuring credits connected with exports of goods and services from the Czech Republic against political and commercial risks has been co-operating with GOLAW for many years. Starting from the year of 2015 we have been co-operating very intensely. We really appreciate their progressive approach to solving complex legal issues of claims recovery in Ukraine. We have profited from GOLAW’s attorneys ability to select and follow a winning strategy and from their business oriented approach. As a result of this approach our insured bank foreclosed upon an asset that has been nearly lost due to unlawful action of the debtor and is close to substantial recovery.
