Issue No. 5, COMPETITION AND LAW journal, 2011

Dear Readers,

A year has passed since the pilot issue of this journal was launched.

Thanks to the initiative of the Statut legal publishing house and law firm Pepeliaev Group, October 2010 saw the debut on the market of the first and so far only specialised journal for all those who are not oblivious to the attractions of issues relating to competition and law.

Representatives of the State Duma, Supreme Arbitration Court, Ministry of Economic Development, Federal Arbitration Service and Association of Russian Lawyers have joined the editorial board. Foreign partners from the law faculties of Vienna University and the University of Iowa supported the idea.

The pages of the publication have featured intensive discussion of the preparation of the third set of antimonopoly measures, liability for violating antimonopoly legislation, cartels and case law, including the TNK-BP case. In March 2011, under the journal’s aegis, an international forum was held which was attended by noted experts from Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia, USA and Russia.

I should note that, over the past year, a proactive group of lawyers and economists has grown up around the journal. They not only write articles, but also join with the editorial staff to set topics for subsequent issues.

Our journal is not only a collection of articles. It is, in its way, a club of professionals who are united by their interest in competition law. Ahead of us are new meetings, discussions and insight from colleagues and friends we have grown to know well.


The fifth issue of the journal opens with an article by Deputy Chairman of the Russian Lawyers’ Association and a member of our editorial council, Igor Redykin. The author concludes that competition does not occur automatically, even after a serious restructuring of monopoly sectors and the removal of administrative barriers.

The Head of Antitrust at law firm Hannes Snelmann, Eugenia Borzilo, takes the topic forward, noting that keen competition is one of the things that promotes diversity in the struggle to compete. In her article, Ms Borzilo examines the main methods applied by Russian companies in the struggle to compete.

On 28 September, the Head of the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS), Igor Artemev, made an extremely revealing speech to the Russian Federation Council, Parliament’s upper chamber. He labelled the situation on the oil products market as constrained. Senators seriously discussed a change in policy in the sector, and the head of the competition authority expressed his views in this regard.

At the beginning of September, the FAS commemorated Competition Day. Oksana Bodryagina, head of Competition and Law’s information department, discovers what kind of day this was: a jubilee or an extended panel session.

Ekaterina Dyachenko, Head of the Administrative Dispute Resolution at law firm SA Consulting (Samara), studies the electric power market. The author addresses the Standards that have been approved for disclosure of information by entities on the wholesale and retail electric power market. She considers that what is a progressive piece of legislation in itself engenders numerous difficulties relating to the imposition of administrative liability on those entities on the market for which this is not the main area of activity.

Maria Kobanenko and Olga Denchenkova, Associates at law firm EPAM, have examined in their article liability of members of a group of persons for abuse of a dominant position.

Elena Ovcharova, Head of Administrative Law Defence of Business at Pepeliaev Group, has turned her attention to the pricing policy for vital medicines and pricing violations relating to this group of medicines. Ms Ovcharova discusses whether and how such violations are punished.

Veronica Kazakevich, Director of the Civil Law Department at law firm CLIFF, talks about public procurement and the problems of applying Federal Law No. 94-FZ. Case law, notes Ms Kazakevich, has become well established on the key issues. However, situations are encountered in which both a positive and a negative decision could be anticipated. This article discusses the consolidation of a lot.

This issue also features our regular contributors, economists and consultants on antimonopoly regulation at RBB Economics, Vitaly Pruzhansky and Jan Peter van der Veer. Their article aims to cite specific examples to show how from an economic perspective the borders of commodities markets should be determined in relation to derivative products. They have formed their conclusions based on experience over many years in economic analysis.

Pepeliaev Group Associate Maria Sedykh has provided her regular overview of legislation and case law.

We are proud of the fact that a reader may pick up our journal and start at any page. This is particularly true of the ‘Global Experience’ section. Colleagues from law firm Art de Lex, managing partner Dmitry Magonya and senior associate Yaroslav Kulik, have pondered over the situation on the market of such communications giants as Google, Yahoo, Bing and Yandex. Companies and business people who, to promote their products, form relationships with search services are ever more frequently facing their interests being infringed. The article examines the widely publicised conflicts of Google with its competitors and clients. It investigates how Google’s actions were classified in legal terms and assesses the impact of EU and US practice on the Russian market for internet technologies.
