Tajikistan Aluminium Dispute

Bell Yard advised Ansol, an international aluminium trading company, in its various high-octane disputes against TadAZ (now known as Talco) the Tajikistan aluminium smelter (Ansol* & Otrs* – v – RUSAL (Russian Aluminium Company), TadAZ & Otrs).

Following early settlement, the world’s second largest aluminium company, RUSAL, was removed as a co-defendant in the action. The litigation involved multi-jurisdictional actions, freezing orders, worldwide injunctions and counterclaims as part of the multi-million dollar litigation over an alleged breach of a joint venture agreement.

The case finally settled on confidential terms one month in to the anticipated six month trial, in November 2008, following transnational media coverage across the UK, Russia and Tajikistan.
