Legal Express: January 2015


A draft bill that introduces numerous changes to the Federal Law on the Protection of Competition was introduced for public discussion. In particular, it proposes to list nine types of unfair competition – for example, “creating the impression of being involved in the operations of another firm“, misrepresentation and incorrect comparison.

Official business trips are now administratively easier. The only remaining mandatory document is an order to send an employee on a business trip.

Another draft bill introduced for public discussion brings the Federal Laws on Limited Liability Companies and on Joint-Stock Companies and the Law on the State Registration of Legal Entities in line with the new provisions of the Civil Code that came into effect on 1 September 2014.
