Antonov Won a Major Court Case in the Russian Federation

News date: 28 July 2016

Ilyashev & Partners Law Firm successfully defended interests of the State Enterprise Antonov in a court dispute with JSC Aviacor – Aviation Plant in the Arbitration Court of Samara Region in the case on payment of remuneration (royalties) for use of trademark during manufacture and sale of aircraft.

“Pursuant to the court judgment of July 4, 2016, the claims of the State Enterprise Antonov for more than USD 2.9 mln were satisfied and shall be recovered in favor of our Client”, commented Roman Marchenko, Senior Partner of Ilyashev & Partners Law Firm.

Vladimir Zakharov, head of the Moscow office of Ilyashev & Partners Law Firm, who provided legal support of the case, due to lack of extensive practice of dealing with such disputes by the Russian courts, the struggle for proving the client’s case to the judges was rather long and complicated. “The court session was closed as the subject matter of the proceedings was directly related to the commercial secrets of the parties to the case”, Vladimir Zakharov said.
