Representing Ukraine in the case of Tatneft’s application for recognition and enforcement of an investment arbitral award worth approximately US$150m (the first case to be heard in Russia on the recognition and enforcement of decisions of an international investment arbitration against a foreign state).
Representing a client in a dispute on bringing him to vicarious liability initiated by the debtor’s receiver, who stated that our client had not filed for the bankruptcy of the debtor in a timely manner and that he is therefore obliged to pay off the creditor’s claims.
