Mondelez Ukraine - representing in dispute with the Trostianets City Council

The local court dismissed the claim in full. The court agreed with the defendant’s arguments that neither the law nor the agreement provided for the lessor’s right to amend, unilaterally and on its own initiative, the agreement, so that to revise the rent, and that the decision of the City Council to increase the rent could not serve as a legislative ground for amending the agreement. The City Council agreed with and did not appeal the court's decision.
