Rustam Kurmaev & Partners wins a high-profile dispute with the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia
16 december 2019

Rustam Kurmaev & Partners (the team of Rustam Kurmaev, Vasiliy Malinin and Zaur Tsarakov) have won a high-profile dispute with the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia for Boris Dubrovskiy, the former governor of the Chelyabinsk region.

The Moscow City Arbitrazh Court invalidated the decision of the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia which had found Mr. Dubrovskiy guilty of entering into an anticompetitive agreement with a commercial entity. According to the Federal Antimonopoly Service of Russia, the agreement restricted road-building competition in the Chelyabinsk region.

This dispute is unique for Russia: heads of Russian regions have never before in the history of the modern Russia been held liable for violating the Competition Law.
