KIAP wins court battle over employment for foreign company

The action was for reinstatement of a former head of the Russian representative office of a foreign company, a major player in the business aviation market. Long talks between the company shareholders and the head of their representative office in Russia brought no accommodation, and the company was forced to terminate him for irregularities identified by the firm's lawyers in the professional activities of the chief representative. 

The termination was challenged by the former employee in a legal action; the court, however, accepted the arguments of Principal and ruled to reject the claim in its entirety. 

This victory enabled Principal to bring its Russian establishment back on track and avoid multi-million damages sought by the former employee.

The case was litigated by the firm's lawyers Georgy Karaoglanov and Konstantin Astafiev.
