Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners has successfully defended Ilya Averyanov, the former owner of the Menshevik Confectionary in South-Eastern Moscow, in a trial involving charges that he murdered a guard at the factory.

According to EPAM, “Averyanov was arrested two years ago on charges of murdering a guard.” The firm reports that its lawyers managed to “prove at the time that an attempted hostile takeover of Menshevik Confectionary was the true reason for the tragedy. As a result, Averyanov was found not guilty of murder by the Moscow City Court, a decision later confirmed by the Appellate court.” The case was finally brought before the Supreme Court of Russia, where, according to the firm, “the court dismissed the cassation appeal and upheld the acquittal of the defendant.” 

The Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners team included Partner Victoria Burkovskaya, Counsel Andrey Bastrakov, and Associates Maria Zazirnaya and Anton Lubimov.
