Uriage (Uriage Dermatological Laboratories LLC), the famous manufacturer of French skin care products, found itself faced with an unpleasant situation when its Russian distributor Epol (Epol LLC) refused to pay for the products supplied to it for subsequent sale. Because of the debt which had accumulated, Uriage was forced to apply to the court seeking to recover the price of the supply, as well as default interest for the non-performance of obligations under the contract. The company entrusted its legal representation to Acsour’s Legal Department.
