CMS Moscow has successfully represented the interests of GE Healthcare in several court proceedings against the Russian healthcare regulatory authority Roszdravnadzor.

CMS reports that the firm was able to “invalidate the regulator’s refusal to register one of GE Healthcare products, a modern ultrasound diagnostic system, in Russia. The positive decision of the court of the first instance was awarded in July of 2020 and the regulator is bound to authorize the client’s product and allow its circulation in Russia.”

CMS’s team included Counsel Vsevolod Tyupa, Senior Associate Igor Sokolov, and Associates Alexey Shadrin and Anastasia Entyakova.
