Pepeliaev Group’s lawyers are permanently involved in drafting and amending the main codified regulatory acts which affect the interests of the business community, namely the Code of Administrative Offences and the Administrative Court Procedure Code. In addition, we work on draft resolutions of the Plenum of the Russian Supreme Court regarding the application of these acts.
The client puts forward the opinion we prepared in various contexts, including when working with non-profit organisations, particularly with the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, and when working with state authorities to promote the ideas set out in the opinion. This opinion applies not only to the client’s business, but it also includes proposed changes: a reform of antimonopoly legislation, which is important at a higher level, for antimonopoly regulation in Russia in general.
We have performed comprehensive analytical work towards improving antimonopoly legislation, taking into account international experience that we studied and applied effectively.
The research is not only instrumental in fulfilling the Russian President’s Address on creating a uniform and holistic mechanism for the administration of tax, customs and other fiscal payments, but it also creates a foundation for the best global practices for collecting such payments to be adopted in Russia.
The report on the results of this research served as a basis for the President of the Chamber's report to the Russian President on 29 December 2015. Based on the results of the report and the discussion of it at the congress of the Chamber on 1 March 2016, the Russian President instructed the Russian Government to prepare a plan of actions (the Roadmap) to systematise such public payments.
During a period of constantly changing legislation in the pharmaceutical industry, our lawyers have been providing support to the in-house legal department of a major pharmaceutical company by drafting monthly reviews of legislation and case law with detailed comments and practical advice on how to apply new developments and amendments. This allowed to the company to promptly respond to any amendments and to bring its documents into line with the new requirements.
