Since 2015 S&K Vertical Attorneys at Law and Pravo.ru have been implementing a joint project which over the years has become our hallmark in the legal community. This is an annual study of the most notable corporate disputes that have significantly affected the business environment and law-enforcement practice, as well as resonated in the mass media.
Each year we choose a particular angle of the study responding to the trends we have observed in the market. So, for example, in 2019 the experts reviewed the 10 most interesting bankruptcy cases, and in 2020 they reviewed private client cases. In 2021 the focus was on corporate conflicts complicated by the criminal prosecution element, and in 2023 we made a podcast on the 13 most significant corporate disputes with a family-and-inheritance element.
The researchers are the attorneys of S&K Vertical attorneys under the direction of Alyona Bachinskaya, the partner of the corporate practice. And the unique visual presentation of the content is the merit of our colleagues from Pravo.ru.
Below you will find a retrospective review of all our special projects on corporate disputes, each of which is undoubtedly worthy of attention.
