Advocates Bureau Yug Successfully Defended Major Metal Product Manufacturer of Russia

50% shareholder of the plant – one of the largest manufacturer of metal products in Russia — challenged the contracts of agency and supply of customer-owned raw materials concluded between the plant and one of its major suppliers. The shareholder considered these transactions invalid, as they were concluded with violation of requirements for large transactions and related-party transactions, as well as due to the abuse in rights by the supplier. The shareholder also requested to recover 1.4 billion RUB from the supplier as a restitution.

More

Advocates Bureau Yug represented the interests of the plant and the supplier in this case. We developed a legal position for our clients and represented their interests in the court of first instance. We highlighted that there are no grounds in this case for invalidation of transactions, since they are not large, and these transactions did not involve alienation of the plants property. Also, there were no mandatory sign of damage for invalidation of transactions as related-party ones. All the transactions gain economic profit for the plant as they as they save money for purchase of raw materials. Moreover, the plant receives agency fees under the transactions, as 1.4 billion RUB transferred by the plant to the supplier are the money received by the plant due to sale of metal products owned by the supplier. And as a result, this money belongs to the supplier, not the plant.

The Bashkortostan Republic Commercial Court agreed with our legal position and dismissed the claim fully on June 1, 2021.

Senior associate Sergey Radchenko and associate Ekaterina Fedenko represented both clients in the court.

Advocates Bureau Yug successfully defended the interests of a major Russian oil and gas company operating in the Republic of Iraq in a labor dispute

Regarding the case, the plaintiff claimed to recognize that the companys refusal to employ officially is illegal and that it should enter into an employment contract. The plaintiff also claimed to recover from the company a sum of unpaid wages for several months, losses and compensation for moral damage. The plaintiffs position was based on the fact that he received a signed job offer from our client into the defendants branch in the Republic of Iraq, which contained all the essential terms of the employment contract. The plaintiff claimed that the parties had actually entered into an employment contract.

More

During the trial, we managed to convince the court that the job offer did not contain all essential terms of the employment contract, and shall be recognized as a preliminary approval of the plaintiffs competency. However, the plaintiff did not have a professional aptitude required for the job. The claim to recover unpaid wages is also dismissed, since wages are remuneration for work and its sum depends only on the quantity and quality of labor put in. The court refused to satisfy the claims in this case in any way.

Alexander Fedorov, Head of the Department for insolvent debtors in RUSAL, discussed with the audience consequences and risks of the moratorium on bankruptcy proceedings for debtors and creditors. The topic of the moratorium was continued by Sergey Kislov from the Bar Association "Kovalev, Tugushi and partners", who wondered whether the business was waiting for a bankruptcy epidemic and whether the arbitration courts would be able to cope with the influx of cases. Irina Kalinina, managing partner of Legal World, investigated changes in bankruptcy law and its impact on family law.

The second session, moderated by Denis Saushkin, managing partner of the Advocates Bureau ZKS, was devoted to the criminal law.

Being moderated by Yuri Pustovit, managing partner of the Advocates Bureau Yug, table 1 discussed what practices and areas are in demand now and which areas are in need of a consultant.

Table 3 and Andrey Korelsky from Advocates Bureau KIAP, discussed what tools of interaction with in-house lawyers were in demand and which ones were no longer relevant. Table 4 and Ivan Apatov, managing partner of White Collar Strategy, talked about the financial component of the legal business, whether there was a place for discounts, and how consultants worked with accounts receivable. Glenn Kolleeny, partner at Dentons, and table 5 discussed whether new customers could be found during the pandemic, whether there was customer loyalty, and how one should interact with companies from affected industries.

The official part of the Forum ended with a gala dinner, and the next day the Forum continued in its informal form. Lawyers are active people, so for the third year in a row, Forum participants were trying out such an extreme sport as sailing regatta. Each time the event carries an element of intrigue, as it mostly depends on unpredictable weather conditions. The race was held in rather extreme weather conditions in two stages, and the winner was selected based on the results.

In general, XII Legal Forum of Southern Russia was very emotional: In addition to its warm and sunny location in Sochi, guests appreciated the opportunity to talk face to face without a screen. In addition to interesting professional programs, many regular participants were happy to have met colleagues and friends. Lawyers who came to the Forum for the first time appreciated the opportunity to meet with more experienced colleagues.

Advocates Bureau Yug Successfully Proved the Resolution of the Urban Settlement Administration on Seizure of a Land Plot from the Developer to be Invalid

In 2018 the Administration of Korenovsk urban settlement made the resolution to seize the client’s land plot for sale at public auction. On one hand, the resolution was caused by long-term disuse of the land plot for its intended purpose. The land plot had the type of permitted use for a logistic depot. Another reason was nonperformance of settlement agreement dated 2017, approved by the court, where the client was obliged to perform a phased construction of the logistic depot in Korenovsk.

More

The courts of the first and appeal instances took the side of the urban settlement’s Administration and dismissed the client’s lawsuit. However, the Commercial Court of the North-Caucasus District took into account our arguments. The court of cassation instance indicated in its decision that the seizure of a land plot is an exceptional measure, and the owner of such a land plot must be notified in advance of violations committed. Moreover, the client was not held administratively liable for the disuse of the land plot for its intended purpose. The client also received no mandatory instructions issued in the course of state land supervision. The said settlement agreement also does not stipulate the seizure of a land plot as responsibility for nonperformance. The court pointed out that the Administration’s resolution was approved without grounds for the seizure of a land plot in accordance with Art. 284 of the Russian Civil Code and violated the interests of the land plot’s owner of the business field. Upon consideration of the cassation claim, the Commercial court of the North-Caucasus District canceled the previous judicial decisions and made a new decision on invalidating the resolution of the urban settlement Administration om seizure of the land plot.

Advocates Bureau Yug successfully defended the plant owner from Slavyansk-on-Kuban and one of the major local agricultural processors in the Commercial Court of the Northern Caucasus Region

The client owns a 50 % share in the authorized capital of the plant in Slavyansk-on-Kuban. It is one of the major processors of agricultural products in the Krasnodar region. The second owner of 50% share decided to intercept management and appointed his own head of plant. To this end, he convened a Board of Directors, which consisted of three out of five members under his control and elected a new General Director.

More

The client filed a lawsuit against the plant asking to invalidate the decision of the Board of Directors on the three following grounds: violation of procedure for convening and conduct of meetings (convening application was forwarded one day before the meeting date without consent of Chairman of the Board of Directors), quorum violation (4 out of 5 members), a newly appointed General Director was previously recognized as a bankrupt by the court decision.

The Krasnodar Region Commercial Court agreed with our reasons. On November 28, 2019, the court satisfied the client’s claim, invalidated the decision of the Board of Directors and reinstated the former General Director. However, Fifteenth Appeal Court canceled the said decision and dismissed the claim because the client, being the trustee to inherit shares of authorized capital of the Company, has no right to file into the court. Thus, we filed a cassation appeal against the ruling into the Commercial Court of the Northern Caucasus Region. The court satisfied it on June 16th, 2020, canceled the appeal ruling and upheld the decision of the first instance court.

Advocates Bureau Yug succeeded in convincing the court to cancel a criminal case, unlawfully filed under §7, Art.159, the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation, against the client managing the major investment project in construction sector

A well-known Krasnodar entrepreneur created an investment project on construction of a multi-storey apartment complex with commercial areas in the central part of Krasnodar. In accordance with the law, a land plot was registered, a type of permitted use was changed, and all technical conditions and construction permits were obtained. Afterwards this project was delivered to the investor.

More

During validity of the issued construction permit the investor could not build the apartment complex. Thus, he applied for a new construction permit, but was denied due to limitations on high-rise buildings in the central part of Krasnodar city at that moment. Upon considering the civil dispute to be a long-term affair that would hardly satisfy the investors claims, the investor deemed actions of the investment projects seller to be unlawful and filed an application on crime being committed to enforcement authorities that initiated the criminal case. The Prosecutor General Office of the Russian Federation canceled and re-canceled the decisions on initiating criminal cases, but investigators continued to issue new decisions with other qualifying features.

In order to finish the case and stop violation of the clients constitutional rights, and to achieve legal certainty, lawyers of Advocates Bureau Yug prepared and filed the claim under art. 125, the Russian Criminal Procedure Code. The court fully satisfied the claims. The judge also agreed with arguments provided by the lawyers that relationships between the parties belonged to resolution in civil dispute and could not be qualified as a crime. Thus, the court decided on unlawfulness of the decision to initiate criminal proceedings.

Managing partner Yuri Pustovit represented the client in the court.

Advocates Bureau Yug became a strategic partner of the Civil Law Conference at the Research-to-Practice Conference dedicated to the memory of M.I. Kovalyov in Yekaterinburg

XVII International Research-to-Practice Conference Kovalyov Readings: ‘Legal reconciliation: compromise or concession?’ was hold in Yekaterinburg on February 13-14, 2020. The conference was recognized as an event for exchanging views between practicing lawyers and representatives of the scientific community, and for finding new business contacts.

More

The largest venue in Yekaterinburg was chosen this year — the Congress Center of the IEC Yekaterinburg-EXPO, and about 1200 people from 21 countries took part in the Kovalevsky readings. Among the speakers and honorув guests there was a galaxy of practicing lawyers, scientists and statesmen, judges of different countries, historians and philosophers.

The first day of the business program began with signing of a cooperation agreement between the Russian Federal Bar Association and The Union of criminalist and criminologist.

The major report ‘Reconciliation and Criminal law: unexploited opportunities’ was presented during a plenary discussion: ‘Legal reconciliation: compromise or concession?’

Joint Plenary session of the International Society of Criminology and the International Forum on Crime and Criminal Law in the Global Era (IFCCLGE) was hold on February 13th and dedicated to issues on the fight against transnational crime. Everyone agreed that nowadays it was the major priority of all states without exception. Moreover, international Criminology has the scope of research that goes beyond legal studies and covers a number of other spheres, unrelated to the law. In order to create appropriate tools for reconciliation, all states shall come to an understanding of causes of crime, possible changes of crime in the near future and personality of present-day and future criminals.

The first day of the Conference ended with the Arbitration Conference: ‘Arbitral Award: Voluntary or Enforced Execution’. The participants discussed situations when parties resort to voluntary execution of an arbitral award and what do they focus on; what way of execution — voluntary or сcompulsory — judicial practice promotes; whether voluntary execution is popular in other countries; how voluntary execution influences business development and parties’ relation.

The second day of the Conference on February 14th began with the following parallel panel discussions: ‘The price of state forgiveness: liability or redress?’, ‘Mediation and its potential in criminal law, criminal procedure and execution of punishment’, ‘Attorney, notary, arbitrator and judicial mediator: effective techniques, strategies and competencies’. Yuri Pustovit, the Managing partner of Advocates Bureau Yug took part in the last discussion. During his speech ‘What is the role of an attorney in the reconciliation process’ Yuri Pustovit talked about how reconciliation process looked in real practice. According to data for the first half of 2019, the percentage of cases that ended in a settlement agreement is negligible. There are several following reasons: firstly, it is cheap and quick to sue in Russia; secondly, the clients usually do not want reconciliation as in most case they believe their claims are legitimate and consider peaceful offering as a weakness; thirdly, lawyers do not always want reconciliation as they lack sufficient knowledge of the client’s business specificity, or they do not consider reconciliation to be beneficial in terms of royalties and marketing — successful representation in courts and instances costs more than reconciliation process and looks more favorable as news for website or SNS.

After lunch break the Conference continued with following parallel panel discussions: ‘Privacy: the limits of acceptable state interference’, ‘The ancient customs of reconciliation today’ and ‘Derivative and class actions in corporate disputes. Reconciliation features.

Exclusive off-site meeting of the Council of the Russian Federal Bar Association also took place on the second day.

The Conference ended with three parallel panel discussions: ‘What requirements does legal practice settle for legal education?, Sanctions: pursuit of peace and Real Estate Law: distinction of private and public interests’. During panel discussion on real estate Sergey Radchenko, Senior associate of Advocates Bureau Yug and Candidate of Law, spoke how to distinguish between public and private interests in the legal regulation of unauthorized construction. Norms on unauthorized construction are internally contradictory: on the one hand, creation of unauthorized construction is a public offense, on the other hand, it is one of the legal ways to acquire property rights.

It is possible to correctly distinguish between public and private interests in the field of unauthorized construction only if two difficulties — theoretical and practical — to be resolved. The theoretical difficulty is to determine whether an unauthorized construction is a thing or not. Practical difficulty is to determine whether this particular structure belongs to real estate or not.

Article 222 of the Civil Code has undergone three major reforms, but new norms should be added in order to balance public and private interests, such as: an equivalent of estoppel in the Civil Code, i.e. administrative estoppel; compulsory satisfaction of one of the claims in case of counterclaims for demolition and recognition of rights.

Advocates Bureau Yug successfully defended the foreign bank in the dispute over demolition of linear gas supply facility

Major Armenian bank granted a loan to an agricultural manufacturer under a pledge of a greenhouse complex owned by the debtor. The complex had gas pipeline heating crossing through an adjacent land plot.

More

Upon not receiving monetary compensation, the tenant of the land plot demanded to demolish gas pipeline and reclamate the land plot.

The case became complicated as: initially, the bank was not involved in the case and had no documents related to gas pipeline, and the direct defendant showed no interest in the court case.

During the case consideration ABYs lawyers were able to prove that the pledge holder had legitimate interest in the case. The court recognized our reasoning that the disputed gas pipeline was made in compliance with the necessary permits and approvals. Moreover, during acquisition of lease rights to the land plot, the gas pipeline already had been there. Therefore, the plaintiff should file complaints regarding the land plots defects against the local administration acting as a lessor. The plaintiffs claims were recognized as having no grounds.

On December 10th, 2019, the Commercial court of Saratov region dismissed the claim.

Advocates Bureau Yug proved that the Administration had no grounds to claim demolition of a shopping mall.

Krasnodar Administration filed a compelling claim into the Krasnodar Region Commercial court on demolition of an arbitrarily erected shopping mall and non-stationary shopping pavilions. The claim reasoned that objects within the land plot were constructed without permit as permitted use of the said land plot did not include construction of objects.

More

During the case consideration ABY’s lawyers proved that there were no grounds for the above claim and no arbitral construction of the objects, as well. Thus, according to a registration file of the capital object at issue, it was constructed under the

legislation in force at that time.

Non-stationary shopping pavilions were recognized as non-capital buildings. Thus, their construction did not require a permit. At the same time, the non-capital buildings are exceptions themselves, they cannot be demolished on the grounds of unauthorized buildings.

The forensic expertise confirmed that the buildings complied with urban planning and construction regulations, and there were no violations of rights and interests of other persons protected by the Law, no threats to the life and health of citizens. Moreover, the permitted use of the land plot also included trade activities.

The Krasnodar Region Commercial court pointed out that owners of the shopping mall had bought the object under an onerous transaction, openly and conscientiously had owned it for a long time and maintained it. On the contrary, while controlling planning and construction development of the territory, the local government filed claims after limitation period.

The Krasnodar Region Commercial court dismissed the claim.

Given changes in town planning regulations Advocates Bureau Yug proved an inadequate land rent.

A well-known capital development company entered into a long-time lease on a large land plot in the central district of Sochi with its municipality. However, local authorities arbitrarily made changes to a grand design and development and land-use standards, leading to changes of the land territorial zone.

More

Thus, while carrying out a sustainable development of the territory, the public-law entity changed the legal status of the land plot and its permitted use. Therefore, the land tenant was limited to use the land plot for purposes, agreed upon with the same public-law entity under the lease agreement.

ABY’s lawyers proved that the land plot had legal defect as it was legally impossible to use the property as intended and for the purposes, agreed upon by the parties of the lease agreement. Moreover, forensic expertise established market value of the land rent for the plot’s use in accordance with stated limits.

The Krasnodar Region Commercial Court satisfied the claims and reduced the initial land rent almost by 10 times.

On February 20, 2019, the Rostov Region Commercial Court decided on the case № А53-33498/2018 as follows: to recognize the client as a bankrupt and include the offshore company into the register of creditors with 1.5 billion RUB. On May 24, 2019, the Fifteenth Commercial Appeal Court canceled the above decision and dismissed the offshore company’s petition. The offshore company filed a cassation complaint against the appeal ruling into the Commercial Court of the North-Caucasus District.

By means of circumstantial evidence ABY’s lawyers were able to prove the court of cassation instance that the offshore company was still under control of the client’s former owners. Our lawyers also proved that the debt had a corporate nature, thus, the court could not include the offshore company into the register of creditors. ABY’s lawyers also proved that at time the offshore company received right of claim of 1.5 billion RUB, it had no legal capacity as it had been excluded from the BVI Companies Registry.

The Commercial Court of the North-Caucasus District recognized our reasons. On July 16, 2019, it dismissed the cassation complaint of the offshore company and upheld the appeal ruling.

Senior associate Sergey Radchenko, associates Zakhar Khrebtov and Ekaterina Fedenko represented the client’s interests on the case.

Advocates Bureau Yug became a strategic partner of Kovalyov Readings Arbitration Conference “Mistake: right and liability”.

On February 14-15th, 2019, Yekaterinburg Yeltsin Center held a landmark event in legal world - XVI International Research-to-Practice Conference Kovalyov Readings. It owes its name to Mitrofan Ivanovich Kovalyov, a founder of the Ural criminal law school, and is held under the auspices of the Criminal Law Department of the Ural State Law University since 2004. Nowadays advocates bureau “Loys, previously known as “Puchkov & Partners”, acts as an organizer and inspirer of the Conference. Advocates Bureau Yug was a strategic partner of Arbitration Conference.

More

Over the years Kovalyov Readings became an international platform to discuss topic issues, which the modern international legal community faces these days. Among guests of the Conference there were not only scientists and teachers of criminal law, but also judges, police officers and prosecutors, advocates and practicing lawyers from different countries, notaries, as well as journalists, students and graduate students.

This year the main theme of the Conference was to discuss all aspects of legal mistake. What are the types of mistakes and the main branches of their possible assumption? What are the limits of the distinction between mistakes and actions aimed at committing a crime? How to avoid serious consequences while providing professional services? Responsibility when making mistakes: medical, notarial, business, judicial, legal and others.

Among the speakers and moderators of XVI Kovalyov Readings were the Chairperson of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building Klishas A.A., the rector of Ural State Law University Bublik V.A., the Deputy Governor of Sverdlovsk Region Krekov P.V., the President of the Russian Federal Chamber of Lawyers Pilipenko Y.S., the Vice-President of the Federal Notary Chamber Smirnov S.V., the first Vice-President of the Federal Chamber of Lawyers Semenyako E.V., practicing lawyers from the USA and Europe, as well as other guests, whose professional activity in one way or another is related to jurisprudence.

Yuri Pustovit, Managing partner of Advocates Bureau Yug, was a speaker at the session "Professional mistakes in practice of lawyers and notaries: the strength of a word and the charge for it?”, supervised by Yuri Pilipenko, President of the Russian Federal Chamber of Lawyers, and Stanislav Smirnov, Vice-President of the Federal Notary Chamber. The cost of mistakes in such professional areas is high: the subject bears liability – likely criminal - to the professional community, on the one hand, and to the state, on the other hand (for example, Russian Criminal Code, art. 202). These circumstances are extremely unfair for one party, where the offense is necessary in the proceedings in order to identify the malicious act, and virtually unpunished for other party of this professional area. Besides problem of double control in a number of professional areas, the role of morality during execution of professional activities as a factor of avoiding mistakes also causes many debates. In one cases, standards of conduct are set out in corporate principles, and in the other cases these principles are violated, which leads to serious consequences.

Yuri Pustovit spoke on a delicate issue when the clients position is at odds with the position of the lawyer, finding ways out of this crisis and its causes. The presentation included real-life examples and cases and was warmly received by the audience. Guests of the Conference will be able to rely on the experience gained from the presentation in their future work. In the aftermath of the speech, web newspaper “Advokatskaya gazeta” asked Yuri Pustovit to write an article for it.

Nino Katamadzes show completed first day of the official program. Denis Puchkov, organizer of the Conference, welcomed the Georgian singer in her native language.

Second day of the Conference started with an extended visiting session of the Council of the Russian Federal Chamber of Lawyers where representatives from CIS participated. At the same time panel discussion “LegalTech VS Classical legal education: mistake or breakthrough” took place.

Advocates Bureau Yug became a strategic partner of the Arbitration Conference, which captured great interest of Kovalyov Readings guests and gathered a large audience. This Conference included several panel sessions: “Arbitration agreement: how to avoid mistakes?”, “Arbitrator mistake and attorney mistake. What is the cost of a mistake and who pays the price?”. Sergey Radchenko, Senior associate of Advocates Bureau Yug, became a speaker in the panel discussion “The exercise of procedural rights: counsels mistake or abuse of rights?”. His presentation was dedicated to the topic “Abuse of process in state courts”, including the concept of procedural rights abuse, their difference from subjective rights abuse, examples of procedural rights abuse and methods of countering abuse based on his professional legal experience.

Kovalyov Readings 2019 became a highly professional communication platform for worlds leading figures of criminal law science, representatives of judicial and investigative bodies, and leaders of the legal community and legal practices of Russia, the USA, the UK, Europe and Asia.

Lawyers of Advocates Bureau Yug Successfully Represented the Leading Company for Design and Construction Engineering in Corporate Dispute Over Provision of Documents.

The client being the Company’s shareholder requested financial documents because he had reasons to doubt work ethics of the Company’s director, who was a shareholder as well, in relation to how he conducted business. The Company refused the request referring to huge number of the said documents and trade secrets regulations within the Company.

More

The first-instance court had made a false conclusion that the client had no rights to information. However, upon reviewing the case closely, the appeal court agreed with ABY’s arguments and decided that the Company’s director violated client’s rights to information because he had established trade secrets regulations in the Company while abusing his powers’ limits governed by the Law and the Charter. The court also approved validity of client’s rights to information, caused by audit of financial documents and preparation to holding the director liable, and dismissed abuse of the right due to lack of proof.

Complex and complicated judicial proceedings resulted in the court satisfying the client’s claims. The Company was obliged to provide the client with all documents requested.

ABYs Lawyers Successfully Defended Austrian Investor in Krasnodar Regional Court in a Dispute Over 469 000 000 Rubles Recovery

ABY’s client – major Austrian investor operating in 30 countries with a plant in Bashkiria was sued for recovery of 469 million rubles. The claim was based on that the client is allegedly obliged to pay VAT under the compensation agreement whereby equipment for furniture manufacturing at a cost of 2.5 million rubles was transferred to repay the debt of the same value under the loan agreement.

More

While concluding the compensation agreement with terms proposed by the plaintiff both parties factored in existing judicial practice that compensation is VAT exempt. However, eventually, the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation (Code of practice No. 2, cl.23 (2017) made another decision obliging the debtor, who provided a compensation for termination of obligations under the loan agreement, to pay VAT. Taking into account changes in judicial practice, the plaintiff made payment, but later decided to recover VAT paid from the client. Thus, he filed a suit to recover the debt at the cost of VAT paid under the compensation agreement.

The Moscow Commercial Court dismissed the suit. While appealing the plaintiff suddenly dropped the case causing the Ninth Commercial Appeal Court to cancel its decision and stop the proceedings.

The further the better. The plaintiff concedes claim right to a natural person – a citizen of Belarus who has been registered in Novorossiysk as in the place of stay in a week prior to a suit. Furthermore, the plaintiff files a suit against the said natural person on illegality of claim rights cession in order to create the issue preclusion, which will oblige the client to pay the VAT, and succeeds.

In order to recover VAT from the client, its opponents used the help of a freelance photographer from Novorossiysk, who "vouched" for the Austrian investor at a cost of the debt claimed. It allowed opponents to sue the client not at the location, but at the place of residence of the "voucher" - in the October District Court of Novorossiysk and successfully recover the debt, despite its inadmissibility and negative decisions on the issue of the Supreme Arbitration (Commercial) Court and the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation.

Lawyers of Advocates Bureau Yug developed new legal opinion in their appeal that proved the first-instance court had made the false decision and violated jurisdiction rules. The Krasnodar Regional Court canceled the decision of the October District Court of Novorossiysk on recovery of 469 000 000 million rubles from the client and dismissed the suit.

This case stirred a great public interest with coverage of over 40 media companies, including federal media as well.

ABYs lawyers Sergey Radchenko, Zakhar Khrebtov and Yuri Pustovit represented the clients interests.
