Development of a draft supply agreement for an international manufacturer of compressors for refrigeration systems

Our client used a supply agreement to formalize contractual relations with their counterparties in Russia for almost 10 years. This contract was not brought into line with changing legislation and new trends in judicial practice. In addition, the agreement caused certain difficulties for Russian management since most of its provisions were borrowed from a similar agreement applied by the parent company in the EU and did not always correspond to the business interests of the Russian subsidiary.

At the client’s request, KIAP employees analysed the current supply contract, conducted several interviews with the client’s business units to find out their expectations and assess the possibility of their implementation in the contract. Since absolutely all clauses of the contract needed to be amended, they actually prepared a new supply contract that meets the client’s interests.
