The Land Law Firm team acted as a consultant to a European retailer in a court case concerning the demolition of an unauthorized extension to a Moscow supermarket. The Moscow City Property Department and the Moscow Government, in their demands, obliged the client to bring the building into compliance with technical documents by dismantling the controversial attached part.
LLF lawyers proved that at the moment of transferring the land plot to the client, the authorized body knew the characteristics of the building in terms of the controversial extension. As one of the tools to prove the history of the site and to strengthen the case, the lawyers used satellite imagery. The practice-based defense strategy using the findings of the construction and technical expertise allowed LLF lawyers to refute other arguments of the plaintiff, in particular, the lack of a building permit and violation of the purposes of the site grant. Thanks to the professional approach of Land Law Firm, as well as harmonious work with the team of the internal legal service, the case was won.
