KIAP contributes to customs case law again

Alexey Sizov, Head of Customs and International Trade practice at KIAP, has won customs litigation for a major Spanish corporation against a regional arm of RF Federal Customs Service. 

The litigation involved an appeal against the decision of a customs authority to include intellectual property royalties in the customs value of excisable goods.

The importance of the precedent for the client was that it involved the risk of extra customs charges totalling several billion roubles.

This case continues KIAP lawyers' contributions to precedent-setting case law in the Central (case No A23-1556/2010) and North-Western (case No A44-3558/2010) legal districts.
