Nemiroff's lawsuit over brand name to be heard on May 22
MOSCOW, May 3 - RAPSI. The Moscow Commercial Court will hear on May 22 Nemiroff Ukrainian Vodka Company's lawsuit against Nemiroff Vodka Rus over the brand name.
Nemiroff Trade House is a third party in the case.
Shareholders of Nemiroff Holdings are currently in conflict over the company's activities in Russia.
Nemiroff Trade House shareholder Alexander Glus, who owns a 25-percent stake plus two shares in the Nemiroff Holding, is in dispute with the other shareholders, in particular with Yakov Gribov, who owns a 20-percent stake. The conflict began after the parties failed to agree on the price and terms of the company's acquisition by the Russian Standard holding company.
The parties are now suing each other in courts in Russia, Ukraine and Cyprus. The Ukrainian Nemiroff vodka producer has filed several lawsuits with the Moscow Commercial Court seeking to challenge the resolutions adopted by the Nemiroff Trade House.
The Russian Legal Information Agency has yet to obtain comments from Alexander Glus.
Nemiroff Holdings Limited comprises the Nemiroff production company, which includes three distilleries in Nemiroff, Ukraine, a management company, the Alco Invest subsidiary, offices in Russia and Poland, and Nemiroff International, with its headquarters in Budapest, Hungary.
