Antika’s experts made a detailed analysis of the first successful case of bringing violators to justice for assisting the AMCU for misuse of commercial secrets. The rules for submitting an application to the Antimonopoly Committee were also thoroughly explained.

“Appealing to the AMCU can be a very effective element of commercial secrets protection, but it is not the only tool that businesses have in their arsenal, so you need to use other means of protection, including appeals to law enforcement agencies and courts,” – summed up the managing partner of Antika, Doctor of Law Alexey Kot.
