Can i sue a UK company if the damage occured in Greece?
My company is based in Greece. a few weeks back we entered into a contract with a UK firm to provide us with goods to Greece. The goods arrived in Greece but they were damaged. We asked for our money back or for a new set of goods and the company in UK refused to provide. What should we do?

I also agree with the above mentioned. Your contract agreement may have set a jurisdiction for all the claims that arise from the contract. Also provisions of who is responsible during transport of goods apply (CIF , FOB terms for example). The first step is to examine the contract and the agreed terms.

I will agree with Mrs. Sidiropoulou. You should primarily check the terms of the contract in relation to what happens in case of damaged good (if there is such provision), as well as the governing law of the contract.

There could be definately a basis for a lawsuit or at least a notice at first, but it largely depends on the terms of your contract with the UK company and of course the detailed analysis of what happened.
