FBK Grant Thornton has been a partner of the annual Kommersant business brunch titled “Inheritance and Family Law from the Perspective of Business Management”. FBK Legal’s Senior Lawyer Anastasia Suvorova was one of the speakers.
She noted that the division of joint debts during a divorce is a pressing issue as courts still apply contradictory approaches.
“Not all debts that occurred during marriage are joint. Former spouses have to prove it in court and determine when and to what extent they were settled,” Anastasia Suvorova said.
The conference aimed to find the ways for companies to defend themselves in respect of family and inheritance law, draw attention to certain novelties in the legislation and cover the most interesting and representative court precedents.
