In this regard, services of investigative lawyers helping to gather evidence and form a picture of the factual circumstances of the dispute remain relevant.

In the article Alan Bayramkulov shared his views on international legal investigations, their role in modern cross-border proceedings and the impact of sanctions on access to justice abroad. 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.

An appeal in the interests of a creditor (a significant construction company) against a judgment on a claim by an affiliated person against a bankrupt.

An action for invalidity of transactions was brought by a minority shareholder of a subsidiary company on its behalf.

Our client is a major construction company that is a creditor in the bankruptcy case of a manufacturing company. In bankruptcy proceedings, the debtor's subsidiary filed claims for more than RUB 700 million.

An action for invalidity of transactions was brought by a minority shareholder of a subsidiary company on its behalf. The plaintiff claimed that the chain of commerce was a cover for another trade that had been made without the necessary corporate approval and was aimed at withdrawal of the company's assets. In court, the debtor agreed with the plaintiff's position, as a result of which the transactions were declared invalid.

The client, as a creditor of the debtor, appealed a judgment declaring the transactions invalid. As part of the case, we analyzed the corporate and commercial relationships between the debtor, its subsidiary, the plaintiff, and other members of their class. As a result of a detailed analysis, we developed a legal opinion that disclosed the nature of the transactions between the class members. The pattern we identified led us to conclude that the funds transferred under the contested transactions remained under the control of the debtor's subsidiary and that the transactions caused it no harm. We also revealed that the contested transactions were aimed at including a creditor "friendly" to the debtor in the bankruptcy case. In addition, we substantiated in detail that the plaintiff had missed the statute of limitations.
