Lidings has advised the Defi Group S.A.S. on matters related to the dismissal of the General Director of its Russian subsidiary and its appointment of a new General Director.

Lidings describes the Defi Group as "a large French company specializing in outdoor advertising and design of promotional constructions."

In a follow up communication to CEE Legal Matters, Lidings explained that its team advised Defi on "relevant issues of employment, tax, and corporate law, the peculiarities and risks arising from the agreement on the employment contract's termination in connection with transfer of the employer’s property to the dismissed employee, and the severance payment." In addition, Lidings' lawyers "successfully negotiated with the tax body and performed registration of the General Director change taking into account the time gap between the date of appointment of new General Director, the date of the employment contract's execution, and the date of filing documents to the tax body."

The firm's team consisted of Partner Sergey Patrakeev and Senior Associate Ksenia Stepanischeva.
