Supporting the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service’s approval of a transaction for the purchase of a group of companies for one of the leaders involved in fields development and operation and oil and gas supply

The client intended to buy at an auction a group of companies, one of the leaders in the market for equipment, vehicles and special equipment leasing. Since such a transaction required approval from the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service, KIAP was tasked with preparing and submitting a petition as soon as possible in order to obtain a decision from the regulator before the auction.

Within three days, KIAP lawyers prepared a set of documents necessary to approve the transaction and submitted the same to the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service. As a result, the transaction was approved within 8 working days without any additional requests or conditions.
