We successfully defended a leading Japanese automotive manufacturer in a dispute brought against it by a contractual counterparty. In its primary claim, the claimant sought substantial damages alleging that the non-renewal of an agreement for the marketing and distribution of automobiles had been unlawful. We secured an award which dismissed the claimant’s primary claim and awarded a counterclaim put forward by our client. After this victory, residual claims and costs were settled on favourable terms with a net payment to our client. The client asked Three Crowns to take on the case when proceedings were at an advanced stage in order to secure our advocacy skills and ability to develop game-changing arguments under the applicable laws.
