Since 2005, when IDGC Urals was established as part of reforms to Russia's electrical energy sector, the firm has enjoyed a successful working relationship with Khrenov & Partners, in particular concerning the handling of highly significant lawsuits involving disputes. Complex legal confrontations have been successfully settled with the direct involvement of the firm's lawyers and which in turn set precedents for the entire electrical energy sector. One of the high profile projects handled by the firm deserves mention for the successful representation of IDGS Urals' interests before the Supreme Arbitration Court of the Russian Federation, in a dispute with consumers on "last mile" issues (final leg in the electricity supply chain). The matter in question was the first case under this category of disputes to be deliberated by the presidium of the Supreme Arbitration Cpurt of the Russian Federation and in turn had a substantial impact on the further development of the court practice in such matters.

CIS Arbitration Forum - On 1 September 2016 important amendments relating to recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments in Russia came into force. The most significant novelty consists in the introduction of Article 245.1 of the Arbitrazh [Commercial] Procedure Code of the Russian Federation (hereinafter referred to as “the APC”) establishing new rules for recognition of those foreign judgements on economic disputes, which do not require enforcement due to their nature.

K&Ps lawyers Alexander Kosin and Victoria Kholodova prepared an analysis of the amendments: "Certain issues relating to recognition of foreign judgments on economic disputes, which do not require enforcement under Arbitrazh [Commercial] Procedure Code of Russian Federation".

Pravo.ru - As a part of a ringing process initiated by Rosneft due to the restructuring of Bashneft, AFK Sistema, despite the recent events that clearly went not good for the company, continues to adhere to the most open policy: at this time the company has offered those who are interested in the dispute, to become familiar with its response to the petition. A 62-pages document gives a detailed explanation  the court should support AFK Sistema, referring to the position of the higher courts on a number of controversial issues.

Mikhail Budashevsky, K&Ps associate, has revised and commented on a document.

Pravo.ru - It happens that the owners of one apartment are extraneous to each other – a small part of the room can go to a stranger for a gift or a bequest. Typically, the owner of the smaller part of the apartment has no objections to sell it, especially if he does not live in it – but at an inflated price. But is there any chance to oblige recalcitrant co-owner to sell their share at a market price? This possibility does exist, and it is once again confirmed by the Supreme court.
Oxana Stupina, associate at Khrenov & Partners commented on the issue.

Vedomosti - Companies more frequently dismiss employees because of posting messages in social networks. Not everyone can draw the line between private and public.
Tatyana Nikolaenko, head of employment law practice, commented on the situation.

Vedomosti - The news that there is the intention to make general directors hired by companies to be no longer subject to the Labour Code’s provisions, appeared back in April 2016. The problem consists of a general director’s dual status. He or she is at the same time the company's sole executive body as well as a hired employee enjoying both supervisory authority and the rights of an ordinary employee.
Tatiana Nikolaenko, head of Khrenov & Partners’ employment law practice gives her comments to the intricacies inherent in regulating the relationship between the employer and the supervisor.
