Alrud has represented French automobile educational association GNFA in a corporate dispute with a former minority shareholder, an unidentified Russian company.
According to Alrud, the dispute related to the exclusion of the majority shareholder, GNFA, from a Russian limited liability company. “After the partners' break-up, the Russian company should have retained a limited right to use the designation, a distinctive part of [GNFA’s] and [the Russian] company's corporate name.”
Still, the parties reached an amicable settlement of the dispute. According to Alrud, “they concluded an agreement under which the company was granted limited rights to use the designation, on condition of withdrawing from [the] proceedings.”
Alrud’s team included Senior Partner Vassily Rudomino and Associates Dmitry Pashkov and Ilya Khodakov.
