Protection of the Customer’s Interests in the Criminal Proceedings

Company A is a client of Sokolovskyi and Partners, an exclusive distributor of the foreign manufacturer of medical equipment. Company A sold medical equipment to another Ukrainian company (company B) within the territory of Ukraine. Company B took part in the bidding procedures organised by the Ministry of Health of Ukraine and was awarded the contracts, so it supplied medical equipment to the state-owned hospitals.

The investigators of the National Police instituted criminal proceedings under Part 5 of Article 191 of the Criminal Code in connection with violation of the rules for procurement of medicinal products at the expense of the state budget. The searches were conducted in company A and company B by the investigators of the National Police and the Security Service of Ukraine in connection with those criminal proceedings. The attorneys of Sokolovskyi and Partners defended the interests of company A during the searches and other investigative actions. The attorneys managed to return the property and medical equipment seized during the searches in court. Also, the attorneys of Sokolovskyi and Partners prevented other illegal actions with regard to the company and its senior executives by the National Police and Security Service of Ukraine.
