Semenov & Pevzner has successfully represented the interests of Domino’s Pizza in the Russian city of Chelyabinsk against a former franchisee. 

According to Semenov & Pevzner, “the [franchisee] filed a lawsuit against the company, alleging that Domino's Pizza gave him unfair assurances when selling the franchise. The franchisee planned to reimburse the costs of running the company's unprofitable restaurant in the amount of about RUB 27 million. The court of first instance, followed by the 9th Arbitration Court of Appeal, fully rejected his claims against the Domino's Pizza chain. In addition, the courts satisfied the counterclaim of the restaurant chain against the franchisee with the requirement to pay off the resulting monetary debt and pay a penalty in a total of about RUB 2.2 million.”

Semenov & Pevzner’s team included Managing Partner Ekaterina Smirnova and Lawyer Alexey Pereverzev.
