Recent experience:

Successfully defending the interests of Russia’s largest collection agency, accused by the mass media of employing unlawful methods in the recovery of accounts payable from a debtor in Ekaterinburg. The case sparked a public uproar and was widely reported on by national television channels and print publications, causing social tensions and prompting prosecutorial bias in the course of the initial probe conducted by law enforcement agencies. Through our work in providing legal assistance to the client, we were able to prove the non-involvement of agency employees in any unlawful actions, which made it possible to avoid both the causing of sweeping reputational harm to the client’s company as well as the imposition of possible penalties on the part of oversight agencies.
