Projects

Restructuring contractual relations between a major manufacturer of agricultural machinery and one of its dealers Our Corporate Practice’s lawyers developed a solution to comprehensively restructure contractual relations between the client and one of its dealers and provided recommendations on ensuring that parties’ relations were secured for the future.
Within the framework of the security measures the client was advised to apply to its relationship with the dealer, the practice’s lawyers developed a mechanism to transfer overdue accounts payable by the dealer to a dealer whose financial standing gives no cause for criticism. Such transfer is performed using instruments only recently adopted by Russian legislation: an option agreement and a framework agreement. The task was particularly difficult because the mechanisms in question are new in Russian legislation and although no case law existed in terms of applying them, our lawyers were required to ensure that the suggested solutions were 100% effective with remedies available in order to mitigate the related risks.
Participating in the development of the Shtokman gas condensate field Pepeliaev Group’s lawyers provided full Russian law support during the development of the Shtokman gas condensate field for Shtokman Development AG. Our tasks in the project involved reviewing and drafting EPC contracts, advising on legislative amendments, as well as on land law issues and the regulation of construction. This included advice on developing infrastructure, obtaining rights to develop land plots, constructing offshore facilities, and structuring the project. Pepeliaev Group’s lawyers also advised the client on issues relating to environmental regulation.
