About bankruptcy problems and risks in 1,5 minutes from bankruptcy trustee Ilya Rusyaev
Which of the two situations are you in?
The appointment of a bankruptcy trustee is an integral part of the bankruptcy procedure of a legal entity. The trustee is appointed by the arbitration court. The advantage of selecting a trustee lies with the party initiating the company's bankruptcy. The debtor, a competing creditor, competent authorities, as well as employees or former employees of the debtor with claims for severance pay and/or wages, can plunge into bankruptcy.
Your company's bankruptcy
You are facing the bankruptcy of your private company — overdue debts exceeding 300 000 rubles ($ 4 000) for more than 90 days, and you are unable to repay the debts. The bankruptcy procedure has already been initiated, not by you but by one of the creditors or by the tax authorities.
The debtor company's bankruptcy
The company has not repaid a debt of more than 300,000 rubles ($ 4 000) to you for over 3 months, and you realise that the debtor is unable to fulfil financial obligations. The debtor's bankruptcy procedure has already been initiated.
What are the risks of bankruptcy if a bankruptcy trustee is appointed without your involvement?
The trustee is a key figure in a bankruptcy case. They oversee the entire process, including making determinations of intentional bankruptcy, applying to court for subsidiary liability of the debtor’s controlling persons, etc. They also maintain complete control and management over the debtor's finances and assets. In practice, the initiative often shifts to the party involved in choosing a bankruptcy trustee. If the trustee is chosen without your involvement, there is a high probability of encountering several problems.
Challenging transactions for the past 3 years (in some cases, you may need to prove your innocence).
In cases of a company's bankruptcy:
Sale of assets significantly below their value.
Attempt to hold executives, shareholders, and other controlling persons subsidiary liable.
Prohibition on discharging personal debts after bankruptcy.
In debt recovery cases:
Improper transfer of company assets.
Transfer of assets to third parties.
Ignoring creditors’ demands.
Appointment of a nominal director who hides from creditors and tax authorities.
To satisfy your demands and expedite the procedure, it is important to choose a bankruptcy trustee in advance. When applying for bankruptcy, it is necessary to indicate the self-regulatory organisation (SRO) which the trustee of your interest is related to.

If the bankruptcy procedure has already been initiated and the bankruptcy trustee fails to fulfil the obligations properly, we will do everything possible to replace the trustee in accordance with the law.

years of legal practice
My key objective as a bankruptcy trustee is to efficiently navigate through all the stages of the procedure within the shortest time possible. It is essential to logically finalise the procedure considering legal requirements, rights, and interests of all parties involved.
  • For debtors, the goal is to overcome the crisis in the company, restore solvency, write off debts, and legally close the company if necessary.
  • For creditors, the aim is to ensure the maximum recovery of the debt.
