Aequo Successfully Defends Interests of Pilot Group’s TV Production Companies in a Multi-Million Dispute
Aequo’s Dispute Resolution Team has successfully defended interests of Pilot Group’s TV production companies in a dispute over the invalidation of transactions and the collection of unreasonably received funds. The case concerned unlawful transfer of funds from the accounts of the Companies without the management’s knowledge and consent to the accounts of private entrepreneurs (PEs) for allegedly provided consulting services. The circumstances of the case were complicated by a large number of contracts allegedly concluded between the Companies and the PEs.
Having considered the claim, the court decided in favor of the Companies and invalidated the contracts allegedly concluded between the Companies and the PEs, and also collected a multimillion debt from the defendants.
Aequo’s counsel Yevgen Levitskyi and associate Yevgen Goncharenko represented the client in the court proceeding.
