KIAP wins litigation for Russian bank - leader in consumer lending
The dispute was over misuse of the bank's intellectual properties by one of the bank's competitors (microlender), and specifically elements of the house style as well as the trademark. The court granted all the claims of the Firm's client, finding the infringer in breach of competition law and ordering the corporate infringer to cease and desist from using the bank's house style elements and designations confusingly similar thereto.

Acting as counsel for the client in this matter were KIAP attorneys Konstantin Suvorov and Daria Chernysh
