On behalf of the client, we filed a claim to the Moscow Arbitration Court. The respondent intentionally delayed the dispute and claimed that the court should reverse the claim due to lack of jurisdiction, and then disputed the debt and repeatedly demanded reconciliation, finally, he offered an amicable agreement while asking the claimant to withdraw the claim.
At the end of 2014 was filed an action against company (our client) for damages caused by the criminal actions of its employee. The amount claimed was 174 404 079 roubles (approximately 3 488 081,58 euro at the time). The plaintiff provided the court with Mr. S’ criminal case files as evidence, even though the case had been closed.
The client carried out a large range of work related to drilling a prospecting well in the Severo-Payakhsky site of the Taimyr region of the Krasnoyarsk Territory. The contracted works had to be carried out in five stages. Our client involved contractor to perform part of the works and paid an advance to it amounting to 42,535,229.95 rub
The client could not resolve the dispute independently for several years. He resorted to the services of lawyers of another company, but to no avail. All judicial bodies rejected to defend of violated rights, practically on formal grounds.
The debtor tried to delay the case by all means: at first, he asked to provide documental support of the debt, then offered an amicable agreement, then claimed that the products have not been supplied in full, finally, he offered to postpone the process in connection with alleged forgery of documents.
