The new Decree of the Russian President of 27.05.2022 № 322 established a special order of payments in favor of some categories of right holders on the obligations in the sphere of intellectual property.

The Decree is largely similar to the previously introduced procedure with the use of type “C” accounts and provides for the transfer of funds for the use of intellectual property in Russian rubles to a special type “O” account opened in the name of the right holder. The withdrawal of funds from the type "O" account to another account of the right holder is allowed only with the permission of the Government Commission.

The rights holders to whom payments must be made under a special procedure include those from unfriendly countries and companies under their control, as well as rights holders who advocated the imposition of sanctions on Russia, rights holders who have terminated, suspended or substantially curtailed their activities in Russia, and rights holders brought to administrative responsibility for discrediting the Russian armed forces or contempt of state power or criminal responsibility for spreading fakes about the actions of the Russian army.

On April 28, 2022, the Arbitration Court of the Novosibirsk Region issued a ruling in case No. A45-6357/2022. The Court allowed our client's claims to compel the joint-stock company Angioline China Distribution to holding a special general meeting of shareholders.

The adopted decision has the great importance for the corporate conflict solution that has been going on for several years. The decisions to be taken at the Special General Shareholders' Meeting will stabilize corporate governance in the joint-stock company and end the internal crisis caused by the actions of the opponents. The position of the court also confirms the unconditional right of the shareholder to demand the holding of a special general meeting of shareholders, which does not depend on the presence or absence of a board of directors in the company.

Alan Bayramkulov, Irina Martvel, and Ilya Kozhinov worked on the project.

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.
