FORT successfully represented a client in cross-border court proceedings
Our attorney at law Andreas Veeret successfully represented a client in cross-border court proceedings. Namely, our client (Finnish company) brought an action against an Estonian-based surety (respondent) who had secured the obligations of a Swedish-based company (the principal debtor). Among other matters, the parties argued which law should be applied to the surety.
The courts agreed with our arguments that Finnish law is applicable and satisfied the action in full. Therefore, this was an interesting dispute where the Estonian courts had to settle the matter under foreign (Finnish) law.
