In the period from 2014, more than 180 banks were withdrawn from the market in Ukraine, as of the beginning of 2020, 97 of them have already been liquidated.
Of course, this situation in the market of banking and financial services has led to large-scale illegal violations of the rights of depositors and creditors of the bank to return their own cats.
At the same time, due to, in particular, the fact that the attorneys of the Law Firm “Kravets & Partners” managed to prove in a lawsuit against some banks that violation of the rights of depositors and creditors was the fault of the NBU, which did not take adequate measures properly and timely to protect the interests of creditors, the attorneys of the Law Firm “Kravets & Partners” also managed in a judicial proceeding to achieve the means and with the owners of such banks, which are also responsible to exercise proper management of the bank and take measures for stabilization of its activities, it should not be forgotten that the attorneys of the Law Firm “Kravets & Partners” have repeatedly resolved disputes with the DGF on inclusion of persons in the list of depositors, payment of guaranteed amounts and appeal of illegal actions of officials of the DGF, which violate the rights of depositors.
A separate problem category is the so-called “Crimean depositors”, who, unfortunately, are subject to certain discrimination only on the grounds that they once invested their funds in banks located in the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, but the rights of such persons continue to be protected by the legislation of Ukraine, so the attorneys of the Law Firm “Kravets & Partners” successfully protect such citizens both at the stage of judicial protection and at the stage of execution of the decision and actual return of monetary funds.
It should be noted that the attorneys of the Law Firm “Kravets & Partners” represent the interests of not only depositors, but also debtors of the bank, because, unfortunately, banking or financial institutions, wanting to get as much as possible, neglect the rights of debtors provided by law. So, for example, the most frequent abuses by banking and financial institutions are: establishment of exorbitant interests, simultaneous accrual of penalties and fines, appeals with claims outside the statute of limitations, foreclosure on the subject of mortgages in a manner contrary to the law, recovery of funds from guarantors when the guarantee is considered to be terminated, and so on. The attorneys of the Law Firm “Kravets & Partners” successfully protect their clients from such abuses.
Another effective way to protect the rights of the bank debtors is also pre-trial dispute resolution, mediation and restructuring, which are also used by the attorneys of the Law Firm “Kravets & Partners”.
