We carry out legal analysis of actions and transactions relating to the assets, shares (stocks) of, and rights in, Russian organisations to assess their compliance with Russian competition laws and to identify cases in which approval of the Russian competition authority is required.
Our team analyses agreements and actions of market participants to reveal signs of unfair competition, abuse of dominance, agreements restricting competition or cartel agreements.
We help to protect the rights and interests of our clients against all kinds of unfair competition used by other businesses, including inaccurate advertising, misleading consumers and unlawful use of intellectual property.
We advise our clients on a range of issues concerning the creation, placement and distribution of advertising materials on the Russian market, including consumer protection, offering and distribution of financial instruments, advertising of financial services and IP & IT issues.
We safeguard the interests of our clients by liaising with the Russian competition authority on matters concerning alleged violation of competition rules, obtaining the regulator’s approval in respect of draft agreements and challenging the regulator’s actions in courts.
