Rightmark Group managed to prevent closure of a popular Schastye restaurant in the historic centre of St. Petersburg.

During a scheduled inspection in one of the most popular restaurants downtown, the Federal Service on Customers' Rights Protection and Human Well-being Surveillance (Rospotrebnadzor) revealed a number of violations of disease control and prevention regulations, and issued to the company an instruction to eliminate them. Then Rospotrebnadzor brought an action before the Arbitration Court to prohibit the company activities, making reference to the fact that the remaining violations are irremediable due to the special nature of the historic building in which Schastye restaurant is located. Defending the restaurant interests before the court, the lawyers draw special attention to the fact that Rospotrebnadzor, in violation of the Civil Code provisions, failed to provide evidence that the revealed defects may inflict harm in the future. Rightmark Group lawyers have convinced the court that the existing standards for restaurants are designed for the newly constructed projects and do not apply to a building constructed in the early 20th century, located in the historic city. As a result, courts of all instances dismissed Rospotrebnadzor action, and the restaurant will continue operating and delighting its customers.
