The courts soften administrative sanctions for business. Comment by Elena Izotova.
In the context of the pandemic, arbitrazh courts became more loyal to business entities that have committed administrative offenses. Thus, a number of companies and their managers received minimal fines or were completely released from liability. The courts justify this by harsh economic conditions and losses associated with restrictions. Lawyers believe this is not always justified, especially that the courts demonstrate such a liberal approach not only in relation to small businesses, but also in relation to large companies. Comment by the senior lawyer of the company, Elena Izotova.
