Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners secures another win for Transaero founders in bankruptcy case

In one of the biggest bankruptcy cases in modern Russian history, a team from the Litigation Practice at Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners in St. Petersburg has successfully deflected the latest claim submitted by the bankruptcy trustee in the Transaero bankruptcy case.
 
Representing the airline’s founders, the Firm’s lawyers secured a full dismissal of the bankruptcy trustee’s demand for the return of more than RUB 80m in dividends paid out to the founders, as well as over RUB 24m in interest, when the case was heard at the North-Western District Arbitrazh Court.
 
The Clients’ interests are being represented by Counsel Evgeny Gurchenko, Senior Associate Artem Magunov, and associates Alexander Svashenko, Ays Lidzhanova and Yulia Sevostyanova, under the leadership of Ivan Smirnov, Managing Partner of the St. Petersburg office.
