Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev & Partners has developed an antitrust compliance program for Russia's M.Video retail chain, which sells consumer electronics and appliances.
According to EPAM, as a result of its work, "the company has become the first consumer electronics retailer to launch an antitrust compliance program."
EPAM carried out an antitrust audit for M.Video, on the basis of which they developed an antitrust policy, which was later approved by the company’s Board of Directors and published on the retailer’s website. The firm also identifies antitrust risks present in the company’s activities, formulated recommendations on how to eliminate or minimize these risks, developed a corporate antitrust risk prevention program, and organized training for M.Video employees and executives.
EPAM Partner Anna Numerova, Counsel Denis Gavrilov, Associate Alexander Balyberdin, Junior Associate Igor Gavrilov, and Paralegal Kirill Nagorsky all worked on the project.
