Vegas Lex has won what it calls "two crushing victories" in the Arbitration Court of the North-Western District in the interests of pharmaceutical company Alium in disputes related to the construction contract of a large pharmaceutical plant. 

Vegas Lex reports that it demonstrated the "illegal payment under a bank guarantee and ... the recovery of a large sum paid by the bank, as well as in the dispute on the issuance of a writ of execution for the enforcement of the ICAC decision at the CCI (also made in favor of the client as a result of the successful work of our team)."

According to Vegas Lex, "both victories were won during the first three days after the resumption of the courts, previously suspended due to restrictions imposed due to the spread of coronavirus infection." According to the firm, "the dispute was examined under severe restrictions for the participants in the process (the mandatory presence of protective equipment - masks and gloves, admission to the courtroom for one representative immediately before the meeting, strict regulations on the duration of the speech, etc.)."

According to Vegas Lex, "the project was not without difficulties, [as] the opponents did their utmost to .... artificially change the jurisdiction of the dispute and discredit by any means the issued bank guarantee and the actions of the bank and the customer (our client)."

The firm's successful representation of Alium was led by Partner and Head of Real Estate Igor Chumachenko.
