Moscow Arbitration Court's Decision in Favor of our Client Enters into Force

29 May 2006

On May 10, 2006, a Decision of the Moscow City Arbitration Court in favor of Sojuzpatent's client entered into legal force. The case was a dispute on the company's goodwill, which is a very rare type of dispute in Russia.

Sojuzpatent's lawyers successfully grounded the defendant’s legal position by arguing that the defendant’s letters sent to different bodies (used as grounds for the suit) in fact were correct from the legal point of view (although the true facts of the letters described plaintiff as a bad faith acting company). The plaintiff did not appeal the first instance court's decision.
