  • preparation of conclusions for the Client on tax consequences of the transaction in Russia.
    Support of a complex dispute to protect the interests of the trademark owner.

    Accompanying a dispute on the collection of penalties for violation of deadlines for work performance on the part of the contractor (defendant).
