Pavel Rusetsky on Martex case against Forbes Russia for “The Company Lawyer” magazine

In the summer, the Russian Federation Supreme Court hearing in regard to the case of Martex against AO “AS RUS MEDIA”, the publisher of the Russian version of Forbes magazine, took place. The basis for the lawsuit was Martex taking legal actions in response to AO “AS RUS MEDIA” decision to cancel the lease of the rental premises, which the company had never used. Although Martex won the case in three instances, RBS managed to get justice in Supreme Court, so the previous judicial decisions regarding the case were canceled. 

The case was extremely high-profile, so ever since it took place two years ago, RBS experts have been receiving requests concerning details of the case from the specialized press. 

Pavel Rusetsky, a Head of the judicial division of RBS and the AO “AS RUS MEDIA” representative in the Supreme court hearing, in his column in “The Company Lawyer” magazine wrote about how to convince the court that it is impossible to oblige a tenant to accept rental premises and what to refer to in an argument with a counterparty, which does not accept the cancelation of a rental agreement.

The article is available in the November issue of “The Company Lawyer” magazine, as well as on its official website.
