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 invali-date purchase and sale agreement, under which the client had bought the land plot in Temryuk region and premises on it, and re-claim 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 stat-ute of limitations, the client is a fair buyer of the land plot, and invalidation of the purchase and sale contract is undue remedy.
On December 2019 the Commercial Court of the Northern-Caucasus region finally decided that the claim cannot be satisfied. The deci-sion of the Krasnodar Region Commercial Court and the ruling of the Fifteenth Com-mercial Appeal Court were upheld.
Senior associate Sergey Radchenko represent-ed the client in the court.Back
