Judicial Defense against a Claim for recovery of Penalty

AGP attorney Kristina Timoshenko acted as defense attorney in the legal proceedings for recovery of penalty at the Arbitrazh Court of Moscow. The development of defense strategy was complicated by the fact that the client had no documentary evidence of the disputed legal relations. Nevertheless, the defense attorney succeeded in demonstrating the proper understanding of how the burden of proof should be distributed and adhered to a procedurally reliable approach, so that the court reduced twice the amount of claimed penalty.
