A military prosecutor of the Southern Federal District and territorial office of the Federal Agency for State Property Management in Krasnodar region filed the claim against ABY’s client. They asked the court to invalidate purchase and sale agreement, under which the client had bought the land plot in Anapa and premises on it, and reclaim this property as the state-owned one. Grounds for the lawsuit were as follows: the seller illegally privatized the land plot, thus, the seller illegally sold it to the client.
ABY’s lawyers managed to prove that the lawsuit had been filed with skipping the statute of limitations, the client is a fair buyer of the land plot, and invalidation of the purchase and sale contract is undue remedy.
The Krasnodar Region Commercial Court dismissed the claim, and the Fifteenth Commercial Court upheld the said decision on 14.08.2019.
Senior associate Sergey Radchenko and associate Zahar Khrebtov represented the client’s interests in the court.Back
