Corporate contracts in conformity with Russian law

It is well-known that over the past decade corporate contracts that affect major Russian businesses were signed in keeping with foreign laws.

However, practice in applying this has not taken shape yet, and along with that the law’s wording could result in ambiguous interpretations. That is why it is advisable for companies to pay attention to several important points.

Exclusion from the register of unfair suppliers: analysis of judicial practice

In the current economic situation, many companies are interested in participating in state procurement contests and in procurement tenders of individual legal entities, thus ensuring a certain level of economic stability for themselves.
