Kachkin & Partners has successfully defended the interests of the Mamoshin Architectural Workshop in a dispute over the creation of a new stage at the Maly Drama Theater in St. Petersburg.

According to Kachkin & Partners, its success ended a long dispute between the Mamoshin Architectural Workshop and the North-West Directorate for the Construction, Reconstruction and Restoration of the Ministry of Culture of the Russian Federation involving the latter's improper use of the MAW's designs. According to the firm, "the lawyers of the bureau achieved not only a ban on the use of the [MAW's] architectural project, but also the recovery from the defendant of the maximum amount of compensation in the amount of twice the cost of the volume of architectural solutions." The MAW was awarded RUB 22.4 million in damages.

“We were especially pleased to hear the final verdict in favor of our client, since the decision of the court of appeal takes effect immediately, which allows us to hope that finally the rights of the architect will be restored,” said Kachkin & Partners' Partner Dmitry Nekrestyanov.
