Moscow City Arbitrazh Court enforced the decision of the ICAC at the RF CCI (MKAS) for the benefit of our Client.

Our Client is the largest agricultural enterprise in the Tver region. PB Legal team has successfully helped our Client to recover from an unconscientious counterparty the amount of unearned advance payment under the contract, penalties and costs of arbitral proceedings in the ICAC at the RF CCI. To date, we have successfully completed the case and enforced the ICAC award.

The complexity of the dispute was precisely at the exequatur stage: PB Legal team managed to elaborate a strategy that allowed us to fully satisfy our Сlient's claims. The Moscow City Arbitrazh Court ordered to issue a writ of execution and recovered from the opponents the full amount of the penalty without reducing it.

Alan Bayramkulov, Konstantin Galin, Igor Startsev and Yulia Isakova worked on the project.

At the claim of a foreign company from an "unfriendly" jurisdiction, the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property cancelled the trademark of our Client because it contradicted another trademark with an earlier priority. The foreign company also filed complaints for recovery of damages from the companies that had used the Сlient's cancelled trademark.

At the claim of a foreign company from an "unfriendly" jurisdiction, the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property cancelled the trademark of our Client because it contradicted another trademark with an earlier priority. The foreign company also filed complaints for recovery of damages from the companies that had used the Сlient's cancelled trademark.

Our Сlient is Denis Simachev, a famous Russian fashion designer, artist and restaurateur. PB Legal team elaborated a strategy to protect his brand rights. As part of the implementation of this strategy, we filed an opposition with the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property regarding the granting of legal protection to the trademark of a foreign company.

Alan Bayramkulov prepared an expert legal opinion on Russian intellectual property law issues, which supported the necessity of cancellation of a foreign company's trademark. This expert opinion became the key to the dispute: on its basis, the Russian Federal Service for Intellectual Property cancelled the trademark of the foreign company, which allowed our Client to retain his rights to the brand.

Cancellation of the opponents' trademark will allow the Client to use his brand in creative and commercial activities.

Cypriot court recovered a substantial amount of funds that had been withdrawn from the company as a result of the illegal actions of the former beneficiaries and management for the benefit of our Client.

PB Legal team succeeded in obtaining a judgment from the Nicosia District Court (Republic of Cyprus) for the recovery of over RUB 200 million (the value of the withdrawn assets) for the benefit of our Client, a major Russian energy company.

The dispute was complicated by the necessity to notify the foreign defendants. Alan Bayramkulov (Partner of PB Legal) prepared an expert opinion on Russian law, which enabled the Cypriot court to decide on the proper notification of the foreign defendants and, as a result, to order the recovery of funds from them.

"Kommersant" published a commentary by Alexander Panin, the Managing Partner of PB Legal | Panin, Bayramkulov & Partners, on the draft of the Government Resolution prepared by the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation, which proposes the use of an automated selection regime for trustees in bankruptcy based on a score system in insolvency cases initiated by the tax authorities.

In 2021, the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation submitted a draft bill to the State Duma of the Federal Assembly proposing significant changes to bankruptcy proceedings. The reform primarily involved a reduction in the number of bankruptcy proceedings, an increase in the application of the automated selection regime for trustees in bankruptcy and other new rules for the work of trustees in bankruptcy. To date, the bill has not yet been adopted.

In the published commentary, Alexander Panin suggested that the adoption of this Government Resolution may have a positive influence on bankruptcy proceedings, as the automated selection regime for trustees in bankruptcy is aimed at selecting independent and competent trustees in bankruptcy, while a simple random selection does not guarantee the selection of a competent trustee in bankruptcy.

Contrary to expectations, the number of cross-border disputes with a Russian element has not decreased significantly over the past year - old proceedings in international arbitration institutions continue and new proceedings involving Russian businesses are initiated.

Alan described general investigative techniques and tactics, emphasized the importance of detailed examination of the facts to win a case and explained how the work of an investigator is similar to that of a surveyor.

Alexander Panin commented on the draft law on the possibility of a limited liability company to waive the pre-emptive right.

"Vedomosti" published a comment of Alexander Panin, Managing Partner of PB Legal | Panin, Bayramkulov & Partners, on the draft law allowing to exclude the pre-emptive right of company participants to purchase disposed shares.

Current legislation allows to modify the law-based procedure for exercising the pre-emptive right, but does not directly provide the possibility to completely waive it. The amendments developed by the Ministry for Economic Development of the Russian Federation will allow company participants to exclude the application of the pre-emptive right to disposed shares in a company by unanimous decision.

Alexander Panin pointed out the positive importance of the amendments and their particular relevance for businessmen subject to foreign sanctions. They are interested in passing their assets to third parties as quickly as possible, and the abolition of the pre-emptive right will allow to speed this process up significantly.

On May 11-13, the XI St. Petersburg International Legal Forum was held in St. Petersburg. Managing Partner of PB Legal Alexander Panin as an expert on international companies and special administrative regions (SARs) took part in the session "SARs: new corporate governance tools and opportunities of the Russian jurisdiction".

Alexander Panin spoke about the impact of sanctions on foreign structures that Russian businesses use to hold assets. In his speech, he highlighted the most common problems faced by businesses abroad and noted the novelties of Russian legislation that have significantly simplified the transfer of business to SARs from unfriendly jurisdictions.

As a direction for further development of SARs, Alexander Panin proposed to introduce the institution of Trusts into Russian legislation and to allow the transfer of foreign trusts to SARs. The relevant concept has already been developed by PB Legal specialists. Alexander emphasized the demand for this tool among Russian business, which widely uses it when structuring the ownership of assets through foreign jurisdictions.
