  • We successfully suppressed an attempt by opponents in a corporate conflict to initiate a criminal case against our client’s senior executive for deliberate failure to comply with a court order.

  • We supported a company’s CEO in interrogation at the Economic Crime Department following an attempt by the tax authority to initiate a criminal case under Article 159 of the Russian Criminal Code concerning VAT recovered by the company.

  • We defended a client in a criminal case regarding tax evasion.
