The Partner of PB Legal | Panin, Bayramkulov & Partners Alan Bayramkulov commented for Vedomosti on the news that the London Court of International Arbitration has lifted the ban on litigation for sanctioned companies.

Previously, to process each judicial contribution from the Russian and Belarusian companies under sanctions, the London Court of International Arbitration had to obtain a special license from the Office of Financial Sanctions Implementation (OFSI), but now there is no such requirement, because the London Court of International Arbitration received a general license to process payments from the sanctioned persons.

Alan Bayramkulov noted that, most likely, this step of OFSI is aimed at supporting the arbitration, which traditionally dealt with a significant number of disputes involving Russian persons. Without a general license, the London Court of International Arbitration would have faced a decline in income. That is why the London Court of International Arbitration was granted a general license.

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.
