AKS Legal partners Alexander Svintsov, Kira Svintsova and senior counselor of AKS Legal Ruslan Kozhevnikov were recommended by the rating PRAVO-300 in the category "Insurance Law". This achievement is a result of AKS Legal teamwork. We are happy to congratulate our colleagues.


Under the guidance of partners Kira Svintsova and Alexander Svintsov, and at the request of the National Association of Agricultural Insurers, the AKS Legal team took part in the preparation of a draft law, which has since been adopted and entered into force as Federal Law dated June 11, 2021 No. 177-FZ “On Amendments to the Federal Law ‘On State Support in the Field of Agricultural Insurance’ and on Amendments to the Federal Law ‘On the Development of Agriculture’”. The engagement of AKS Legal was related to the willingness to use our experience in the field of agricultural insurance and litigation. Many of the wordings proposed by AKS Legal are reflected in the adopted Law No. 177-FZ. The law is of key importance for the development of agricultural insurance in the Russian Federation, since it introduces a new institution, i.e. agricultural insurance with state support in case of an emergency.


AKS Legal successfully protected the interests of RSKhB-Insurance in a series of cases initiated by
enterprises from the Samara Region for an amount exceeding 85 million rubles. If the opposing party
had won, there would have been a risk of additional claims and of manifold increase in the amount of
stated claims for the Client. The plaintiffs adjusted their actions in the course of dispute resolution.
However, anticipating this, we managed to correctly build a counter-strategy by applying the full
range of tools and tactics in procedural manoeuvres we had accumulated. The courts dismissed the
claims in full. AKS Legal has gained vast and positive experience from agricultural insurance trials
since 2013, which has now been enriched by another court victory in a series of cases. We will be
happy to welcome new clients in the field of agricultural insurance, since we are experts in this field.
