    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.

    Representing our client’s interests in a separate dispute in a bankruptcy of an airline company, the largest bankruptcy in Russian history

    We advised the former directors of the airline's offshore subsidiary on the likelihood of them being brought to subsidiary liability.

    Representing Russian second-largest investment company in a dispute arising out of a trust management agreement against a non-state pension fund.

    Our opponent went bankrupt and its interests were represented by the Deposit Insurance Agency.

    Our opponent went bankrupt and its interests were represented by the Deposit Insurance Agency. Despite the fact that our client's position was contrary to the existing case law, including the cases of the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation, we convinced the court that the case is unique which allowed us to convince the court to depart from the Russian case law and rule in favor of our client. We proved that the investment company properly fulfilled its obligations under the asset trust management agreement by obtaining a legal expertise, as a result of which the court refused to satisfy the opponent's claims in full.
