The Council of the Presidential Administration of Moscow clarified the procedure for the relationship between a lawyer and an arbitration manager of a debtor
As the Council of the Chamber explained, in a number of cases, failure to provide information and documents by a lawyer at the request of the bankruptcy administrator of a bankrupt organization is self-defense and cannot be regarded as a disciplinary offense.
Lawyer, partner of the law firm Tenzor Consulting Group Anton Makeychuk made an expert opinion for the Advokatskaya gazeta, in which he noted that the clarification on the interaction of arbitration managers and lawyers is extremely relevant, and the list of controversial issues is extremely wide. “This also applies to the submission of documents at the request of the manager, and the conclusion of a lawyer agreement both with the debtor – the former principal, and with the debtor’s creditors, as well as the” reversal “of the actually paid attorney’s fee, which falls into a period of suspicion, and other topics,” he explained it.
