Antimonopoly legislation is one of the most complicated branches of legislation. The close interweaving of the economy and jurisprudence, flux in legislation and the actual boundaries of commodity markets, along with the foreclosure into the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation principle of "objectively imputation" for legal persons, dramatically increase the financial and reputational risks of the companies, the personal risks of business owners and top managers.
In such situation, competent legal support by experts who have not only working experience in the FAS Russia and many years of successful experience in arbitration practice, but based on recent scientific research and theoretical developments, is an integral part of successful private business, procurement activities of state bodies and corporations, officials.
