  • "Dispute of the Year" according to Kommersant (2023)

Daniil consults and represents clients in complex legal proceedings, including corporate conflicts, bankruptcy and commercial litigations, including the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation.

He has worked on significant and precedent-setting projects for the market.

Daniil’s recent highlights include:

  • Successfully defended the interests of a Surgutneftegaz subsidiary in disputes regarding its liability in the bankruptcy of a fuel card operator for more than RUB 28 bn, including in the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation ("Dispute of the Year" according to Kommersant, 2023).
  • Successfully defended a major agricultural holding in the Supreme Court of the Russian Federation in a dispute over the invalidation of bankruptcy tenders, which resulted in the return of an asset worth RUB 5 bn to the Client. At the stage of execution, a settlement agreement was concluded with the opponents, which allowed the Client to start using the acquired land in time before the beginning of the sowing season.
  • Defending the former CEO and beneficiary of the largest railway equipment repair, rail manufacturing and repair corporation against recovery of RUB 1.2 bn. damages. The claim was based on seven separate episodes, including unjustified bonus payments to the director himself and his team, loss of the company's property, failure to perform obligations to the company's counterparties, and fines and charges levied on the company. As the result of a successful defence, the claims against the director were dismissed in full.
  • Representing an international investment fund in a prominent multi-jurisdictional corporate dispute over a major regional bank. Given the nature and substance of the opponents' claims, this corporate conflict is of significant importance for the protection of foreign investors and Russia's investment attractiveness as a whole.
  • Successfully represented a contractor in a dispute with a governmental authority over the return of a subsidy provided for the development of high-tech equipment due to failure to comply with the terms of the contract.
  • Successfully defended a major chemical company in a dispute with a leading Russian private transport group on a violation of the conditions of a forwarding contract of dangerous goods, as a result of which the client was protected from the recovery of damages exceeding RUB 450m.
  • Successfully defended the interests of the client in a dispute with the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation on the recovery of losses caused by illegal prosecution in the form activity suspension.
  • Representing a major Russian insurance company in a claim seeking to recover 605m RUB based on a principle of settlement between insurance companies under OSAGO insurance.
  • Protecting a client’s interests in a dispute over the recovery of RUB 800m in compensation for damage caused to forests due to violation of forest legislation.
