Providing services to design and construction companies has become one of the main activities of the LF “KONUS” (Law Firm “KONUS”). In 2014-2015 on the part of the general contractors we provided legal support for the construction of the rolling mill of the metallurgical plant in the Sverdlovsk region and the construction of office and exhibition center in the city of Yekaterinburg. Deep study of law projects, taking into account the redistribution of the right of ownership to the projects under construction in the construction process, as well as tax and accounting aspects were required.
In 2006 we realized the first project on the legal support of the settlement construction in Sverdlovsk region. As a result, the project was sold to the company with the foreign participation, with which we cooperate until now.
We defended the interests of clients in courts on a number of cases related to construction. In several cases payment for the performed works under the construction contracts was made, including in case if there are not any Work Completion Certificates. Complex disputes concerning the quality of the performed works are successfully solved.
The practice of representing the clients’ interests in “double sales” of the real estate continues. In 2013-2014, we won several cases on invalidation of contracts on the purchase of non-residential premises, filed on the grounds that the same areas were previously sold to other persons, as well as the recognition of the right of ownership to the real estate by our clients.
In September 2014 we, acting in the interests of shareholders, proved the legality of the refusal to extend the permit for the construction in the court to the unconscientious developer. The Arbitration Court issued a decision to refuse to extend the permit for the construction of the developer of one of the most famous long-term construction in the center of Yekaterinburg.
Business to challenge illegal decisions and actions of state and local authorities about the illegal seizure of land plots, creation of obstacles in the economic activity of our clients is successfully been done.
