The client applied for legal assistance in representation of his interests in an arbitration court in a dispute with the Rosprirodnadzor Department of the North-West Federal District regarding the recovery of fees for negative environmental impact. Consideration of this dispute and the formation of a legal position was complicated by the lack of proper legal regulation in the legislation of the Russian Federation on the question of whether the landfill is a proper subject of a legal relationship in regard to paying a fee for a negative impact on the environment. As the consequence of this circumstance there was an absence of a unified approach to resolving this category of disputes in the system of arbitration courts. The detailed elaboration on the legal position on the dispute and the correct tactics of conducting the judicial process allowed the team of lawyers to get positive verdicts in the courts of both instances which was to fully deny the claims of the Rosprirodnadzor Department of the North-West Federal District.
