One of the key areas of activity of the Assyria advocate company is the protection of the interests of enterprises and entrepreneurs in the courts. We work in economic, administrative and general courts, defending the interests of our clients and winning disputes with their counterparts, unscrupulous consumers, tax and other state bodies.
The Court has always been the authority called upon to settle disputes and to restore justice. But why sometimes it is not possible to achieve justice? Of course, one can blame corruption and the lack of independence of judges. Of course, these factors are important.
But the main problem is the complexity of the legislation and practice of its application, in the many nuances that exist in each case, in the difficulties of communication between judges and participants in the judicial process.

Stages of work to protect the interests of the client in court:
(example of calculation)
Initial data: the amount of debt - 300 000 UAH;
The beginning of the delay is January 1, 2016;
Date of calculation of claims - July 1, 2016
As can be seen from the example, the amount of funds collected in favor of the client in addition to the principal debt amounted to UAH 212,405, While the cost of legal services - 45 468 UAH. Thus, the client did not incur any additional costs, while receiving, in fact, an additional income of UAH 166,939.
Or a story about why it's important to always go to the end.
In 2011, Client N asked us for assistance in representing the interests in the court in the debt collection case.
In 2012, we won the court, having obtained a decision to recover from the debtor in favor of our client (Dnipropetrovsk company, engaged in wholesale of polymeric materials), UAH 178 000. But lawyers (and not only them) know which gulf sometimes lies between the issuance of a judgment and its actual execution.
But the problem was that the debtor was "empty" or, to be more precise, almost "empty." Of the property he had only two industrial bases, protected by a mortgage (this is a common way to protect real estate from creditors). Therefore, it was impossible to foreclose these objects.
After some time, the state executor (the person who is engaged in the enforcement of judgments) closed the proceedings, justifying his ruling by the fact that the debtor does not have property that can be sold.
Given the relatively small amount of debt, at this stage it was possible to stop the fight and blame the circumstances. But, supported by our client's faith in success, we made several moves.
Firstly, we appealed in court the decision of the state executor and canceled it.
Secondly, we persuaded the state executor to comply with the requirement of the law and impose an arrest on all the property of the debtor, thereby blocking any actions with real estate.
Thirdly, we filed a lawsuit with the court to recover from the debtor additional sums of money accrued for the period after the court's first decision. Due to the fact that the contract under which we were judged was developed by the lawyers of our company, as a result of this second trial we managed to increase the total amount of debt from UAH178,000 to UAH 438,000.
And then came the day that we waited, and in which the client firmly believed: the debtor had an urgent need to re-register the real estate for another enterprise, but only our arrest prevented him from doing it. It was his turn to make a move, or rather, a proposal. In two weeks of difficult negotiations, we managed to increase the amount of compensation that the debtor offered, from a modest UAH 100,000 to UAH 438,000 (to the full amount of debt on court decisions).
The final of this story is clear: cash to the settlement account of our client from the debtor company was made in the amount of UAH 438,000. This was the point in the case, which could be seemed hopeless.
