EPAM Successful for Transammiak Against Rospirodnadzor in Environmental Dispute
EPAM has successfully defended the interests of Transammiak against a RUB 12 million claim brought by the Department of Rosprirodnadzor (Russia's Federal Service for the Supervision of Use of Natural Resources) in the Voronezh region of Russia for damages relating to an ammonia leak.
According to EPAM, the case involved a June 21, 2015 leak of ammonia in Voronezh. After considering the firm’s submissions, including three expert opinions presented by the firm, the court "accepted [EPAM’s] position and dismissed the lawsuit in full."
The firm’s team was led by Partner Valery Eremenko, and included lawyers Vera Rihterman, Andrei Reznichenko, and Valery Sokurenko.
