GOLAW leads dialogue on navigating Claims and Recoveries amid martial law in Ukraine at Global Industry Event 2023

On the 14th – 16th of June 2023 GOLAW founding partners Valentyn Gvozdiy and Sergiy Oberkovych took part in the Claims and Recoveries Specialist Meeting hosted by Berne Union in Prague, the leading global association for the export credit and investment insurance industry.

The panelists discussed the current situation in Claims and Recovery during martial law in Ukraine. 

“Banks are trying to mitigate the difficulties caused by the war by offering Ukrainian debtors restructuring options, such as partial debt write-offs and rescheduling. These strategies aim to reduce the risk of insolvency and increase the likelihood of full repayment. In some cases, interest accrual may be temporarily suspended or partially canceled.

However, it is essential to understand that legal processes in Ukraine continue regardless of the war. GOLAW’s attorneys work tirelessly, keep our finger on the pulse of these changes and actively take the necessary legal measures. Even in wartime, it is important not to forget the importance of debt collection or restructuring,” said Valentyn Gvozdiy, GOLAW Managing partner

“GOLAW possesses substantial expertise in insolvency and restructuring and is well-equipped to provide legal advice to foreign banks and financial institutions dealing with debtors’ insolvencies. The firm’s team of lawyers has consistently represented the interests of major Ukrainian and foreign banks in settling bad debts and bankruptcy cases, achieving exceptionally positive outcomes. Now, in martial law conditions, GOLAW is representing and defending the interests of foreign creditors in the bankruptcy cases of companies such as PJSC Ilyich Iron and Steel Works of Mariupol and PJSC Azovstal Iron and Steel Works. In several instances, the courts have already recognized the monetary claims of creditors exceeding two mln USD, despite the debtor’s attempts to challenge the debt amount,” concluded Sergiy Oberkovych.
