Dumler and Partners represented an Armenian drilling company in arbitration proceedings under SCC Rules in Stockholm with a major Swedish supplier of high-value drilling equipment.
The respondent, the Swedish company, initially denied our client’s request to return equipment and pay damages, citing limitation of liability under the Swedish-law contract.
We managed to prove, among other things, that the quantity and nature of defects in the delivered equipment was a serious violation of the buyer’s rights under Swedish law. This in turn made it possible to claim return of the equipment and payment of damages.
The dispute was considered under the Arbitration Rules of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce Arbitration Institute with subsequent mediation under the Centre for Effective Dispute Resolution (London) Rules.
As a result, the Swedish company agreed with our client’s claims to return the equipment (instead of repairing it) and to pay damages. The mediation agreement was performed in full.
