The Gagarinsky District Court of Moscow satisfied in full the claim filed by the lawyers of the Bureau of Lawyers “De jure” and recovered from the unscrupulous borrower in favor of our Principal a loan with interest and a penalty in the amount of more than 58 million rubles, with the continuation of their accrual until the actual execution. The borrower tried to challenge the loan agreement due to lack of money and insolvency of the lender by filing a counterclaim, but he failed to challenge the loan. The court recognized as convincing the position presented by our lawyers in conjunction with all the evidence and dismissed the counterclaim. As a result, the Principal increased the loan amount by more than 2 times due to interest and penalties, and while the decision comes into force, we are actively engaged in supporting enforcement proceedings on interim measures imposed by the court, establishing a list of the debtor’s property. The interests of the Principal were represented by Maria Ovchinnikova, Head of the Department of Legal Support of Contractual and Judicial Work of the Bureau of Lawyers “De jure”.
