"RBK" published a comment by Managing Partner of PB Legal | Panin, Bayramkulov & Partners Alexander Panin on the draft law proposing to transfer the authority to register personal funds from the Ministry of Justice to the Federal Tax Service.

The draft law also proposes to exempt personal funds from regular financial inspections and reports.

Personal funds operate in Russia as an alternative to foreign private funds and trusts, but are not popular due to the complicated procedure of state registration and regular inspections. The draft law of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade will significantly simplify the process of establishing personal funds, which are a convenient tool for transferring assets from foreign countries to Russia in the context of sanctions pressure on Russian individuals.

Alexander Panin noted that changes in the legislation on personal funds may encourage the business community to prefer this domestic institution to foreign equivalents, the use of which has recently become increasingly risky and difficult due to the growing pressure of anti-Russian sanctions.

Our Client is a company from Kazakhstan, one of the largest producers of chrome raw materials and ferroalloys in the world. The Client entered into a contractual agreement with a Russian enterprise. The Russian company did not complete the work under the contract, but did not return the unearned advance payment. The law applicable to the construction contract is the law of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

PB Legal's team successfully recovered a debt from a contractor in a Russian court. Based on this decision, we initiated bankruptcy of the debtor company. As part of the bankruptcy proceedings, we challenged transactions involving the withdrawal of assets from the company in favour of a controlling person, and initiated a proceeding to bring the controlling persons to subsidiary liability.

In addition, our team is also supporting a litigation to recover in a Russian court under the law of the Republic of Kazakhstan the unearned advance payment and damages from a South African company, which also failed to perform work for the Client in co-operation with a Russian company.

Our Client is a creditor of a construction company that is currently under bankruptcy proceedings. Works amounting to more than RUB 3 billion were not fulfilled to our Client.

The Client needed legal assistance in conducting an effective bankruptcy procedure of the debtor company to ensure the maximisation of the Client's claims. In the monitoring procedure, creditors filed claims totalling more than RUB 7 billion.

The client is also interested in termination of all contractual relations with the unconscientious contractor, with transfer of all rights and obligations under the contract to the new contractor at the same time.

The PB Legal team represents the Client's interests by (1) supporting the inclusion of his claims in the creditor's register, (2) preparing objections to the claims of other creditors, as well as (3) participating in the disputes with the debtor outside the bankruptcy case, which may help to enlarge the bankruptcy assets.
