EPAM attorneys successfully defended the interests of Unilin in cassation court. Unilin, part of Mohawk Industries Inc., the world’s largest flooring company had a case against Tarkett Rus, which had violated competition laws by creating obstacles to other flooring manufacturers entering the market.
In May 2022, the FAS Russia issued an injunction to Tarkett Rus to cease practices that violate antimonopoly laws. However, the company did not agree with the decision of the FAS Russia and appealed to the cassation court.
EPAM legal team again proved the legitimacy of the FAS Russia decision in three court instances and overcame the opponents’ attempts to delay any further proceedings.
The joint team of lawyers from EPAM Competition Law and Litigation practices working on the case was led by Partners Natalia Korosteleva, Evgeny Bolshakov and Valery Eremenko and included Counsels Anna Arutyunyan and Lev Vasilievykh, Senior Associate Igor Gavrilov, Associate Daria Pirogova and Paralegals Daria Mironova and Elvira Kharchenko
