The Supreme Arbitrazh Court Provides Case Studies on Defending Property Rights

September 25, 2013

In defending their property rights in the Russian Federation (the “RF”), plaintiffs sometimes fail to either establish the appropriate legal means to pursue a claim in court or correctly identify the defendant. In an attempt to clarify the process by which property rights are defended in court, the Supreme Arbitrazh (Commercial) Court of the Russian Federation (the “SAC”) on March 12, 2013 published on its website Information Letter No. 153, dated January 15, 2013, on the “Review of Court Practice in relation to Certain Issues of Protecting Property Rights against Violations which are not Connected with the Deprivation of Ownership” (the “Information Letter”). The Information Letter, which draws from certain disputes presented before the Russian arbitrazh (commercial) courts, contains a number of case studies that provide some guidance on how plaintiffs should go about defending their property rights in a legally sound manner.
