Our practice of dispute resolution is focused on the support for complex disputes in Russia and cross-border proceedings. This experience allows us to find unique solutions using the legal tools in different jurisdictions: litigation at courts with a focus on complex disputes being conducted in multiple concurrent jurisdictions; protecting clients' property interests, including at the early stages of proceedings by means of provisional remedies.
From the very beginning of the project work we analyze in detail all key aspects of a disputable situation, in particular:
What jurisdictions are involved or may be involved in a conflict
Availability of the opponent's property on which it is possible to impose provisional remedies or the levy of execution
A team personnel of legal consultants for foreign jurisdictions (if necessary) and experts
Priorities of work taking into account the objective and terms to be achieved
In some cases it is reasonable to initiate one or multiple ancillary proceedings in order to get evidence or preserve the status quo for the duration of the dispute.
Representing interests of one of the largest international distributors of electricity equipment in numerous separate disputes within a bankruptcy case of a large company building electrical power objects with unique infrastructure.
The dispute arose in relation to performance by the parties of their obligations under four contracts relationships under which at the moment of the court dispute had already been lasting for over five years.
Besides, under three of the indicated contracts counter claims for recovery of a fine for failure to meet the equipment supply due dates were filed.
The creditors failed to achieve introduction of a simplified bankruptcy procedure with a controllable official receiver, the client and other conscientious creditors retained the opportunity to participate in the first meeting of creditors and determine the future of the debtor, including conduction of a financial analysis and assessment of a possibility to recover repayability of the debt.
Over 10 separate disputes regarding entering of the creditors’ claims into the register were won.
As a result, the creditors affiliated with the debtor were refused to be included into the register of the creditors’ claims for the amount of over 870 mln roubles which increased the client’s chances to control the bankruptcy procedure and achieve satisfaction of their claims.
