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

The company successfully defended in Ukrainian courts the interests of big Russian shipping company Volgotanker in connection with the huge claim of the local ecological authorities against the company due to the oil spill in Mariupol port and managed to prove with the team of best experts employed that neither of the vessels owned by the said company could be considered liable for the spill.
