Regulators often initiate administrative cases, and penalties for violations can reach billions of Roubles. Moreover, the state in general, government bodies, institutions, state corporations etc. are main parties of numerous property relations. A part of the state in economy has long ago exceeded 50%. At the same time the state is rarely interested in settlement agreements, implying mutual consessions, even though an opponent party has a strong legal position. Are settlement agreements possible in state disputes? What arguments to use at negotiations? What conditions in the proposed settlement agreement can become a «red flag» for the regulator and the court? How to protect interests of a party in the same time convincing the regulator to conclude settlement agreement? Experts in dispute settlement and representatives of regulators will discuss the issues at KOMMERSANT business breakfast.
Topics for discussion:
