Favourable verdict for Italian Client
December 2, 2020
Gostyński and Partners obtained a favourable court verdict for a leading Italian manufacturer of housewares in a case against its former Polish distributor. We successfully defended the interests of our Client in the court dispute.
The case concerned unpaid invoices issued for the supply of products manufactured by our Client. We successfully countered all of the arguments of the defendant and the Court fully satisfied our Client’s claims.
During the trial, the Court considered the matter of jurisdiction as well as applicable laws. It was an interesting case where not only the provisions of the Vienna Convention on the International Sales of Goods (CISG) became applicable, but also where foreign rules – Italian law – had to be applied. The court fully concurred with our arguments in this matter.
Apart from the principal amount, the Court has also adjudicated statutory interest for late payment according to Italian law as well as refund of the cost of the court proceedings.
