KIAP wins Canadian Developer's Commercial Case in Moscow

KIAP has brought to a close a lengthy and precedent-setting dispute between a Canadian developer and a major energy provider in the Moscow region. As a result of electricity-metering irregularities, the customer was overbilled for electricity usage for a number of years.

KIAP succeeded in demonstrating that electricity consumption had been metered incorrectly for a long time and that the energy provider had failed in its duty of proper verification of meter readings. After two litigation "rounds", Moscow District Federal Commercial Court upheld the previous rulings.

Involved in the project were senior counsel Mikhail Samoylov and Julia Kirpikova.
