    PB Legal team successfully represented the Client in a dispute over challenging transactions in a bankruptcy case.

    We managed to defend the Client's interests in the Arbitrazh Court of the Tyumen Region and prevented the invalidation of the transactions. The Debtor's administrator unreasonably challenged the debt recovery transactions in favour of the Client's subsidiary for 1.7 billion rubles.

    Our team developed a strategy to defend the Client. The Court supported PB Legal's position stated in an answer due to the following:

    • There were no creditors who might have been harmed by the repayment of the loans;
    • Financing of the debtor’s loans by a new shareholder improved the Client's financial status.

    Thus, there were no grounds to challenge the transactions under the Russian Federal Law on Bankruptcy.

    Alan Bairamkulov, Nikolay Stroev, Elena Tsypanova and Nadezhda Simakova worked on the project.

    According to the research of the Kommersant newspaper, PB Legal is amongst the leaders of legal consultants. This year our team strengthened our positions in the following areas:

    The Ministry of Economic Development suggests expanding possibilities to insure executive'officers' civil liability for causing economic damages to their companies and third parties due to decisions they made according to official duties.

    The Ministry of Economic Development suggests expanding possibilities to insure executive'officers' civil liability for causing economic damages to their companies and third parties due to decisions they made according to official duties. The legislative proposal was published on the legislative proposals website after amendments, taking into account comments of the Central Bank and the Ministry of Finance.

    Alexandr Panin, managing partner of PB Legal, analyses amendments which he prepared as a member of the working team of the Ministry of Economic Development. "Taking into consideration the price of the possible mistake, most of executives face financial constraints to insure their liability", says Alexander. "Consequently, executives cannot do it. The possibility of liability insurance at the expense of the company will broaden the scope of entrepreneurial risk, which is essential for business recovery and is therefore a welcome initiative."
