IR Global, the world’s largest exclusive network of advisory firms is delighted to introduce Oleg Fedotov of Jurinter legal firm. Oleg has joined IR as our exclusive Maritime Law Member in Ukraine.

Jurinter law firm is one of the first law firms in Ukraine to begin rendering maritime law services after proclamation of independent Ukraine.

For the long period of its activity the firm has proved to become a reliable partner and advocate of its clients’ interests both within the national jurisdiction and abroad.

Jurinter law firm dealt with numerous major legal cases and claims of Azov Shipping Company, that used to be one of the biggest shipping companies in Ukraine, such as assisting the latter to withdraw their vessels globally from a number of foreign charterers to whom the vessels were bareboat chartered. The firm has been legal adviser of Azov shipyard on the matters concerning their foreign economic activity. 

Jurinter law firm was the first among Ukrainian law firms jointly with English law firm Lawrence Graham to apply successfully both in English and Ukrainian jurisdictions the provisions of newly adopted Commercial Maritime Code of Ukraine and international conventions relating to limitation of liability and in particular that of the owner of m/v “Alkor” (the vessel capsized at port Kherson with full cargo on board) and succeeded in minimizing the owners’ losses considerably.

The firm represents both in Ukraine and abroad the interests of many other shipping companies in connection with ship arrests, exercising lien over the cargo, collisions, demurrage, crew claims etc.
