Vadim Borodulya, Legal Department Head of MCAEE:
«ADVOCACY – IS ACTIVITY IN PROTECTION OF RIGHTS AND PRESENTATION OF INTERESTS OF ENTREPRENEURS - MCAEE MEMBERS. MINSK CAPITAL ASSOCIATION OF ENTREPRENEURS AND EMPLOYERS CONSIDERS ADVOCACY AS ITS MAIN FUNCTION.
MCAEE Legal Department has been created not long ago - it has been working for a year. The number of positive responses and gratitudes to its address amounts to dozens. “What kind of help do our entrepreneurs need?” - Legal Department Head, lawyer Vadim Borodulya answers the question.
- It is impossible to find the single topic critical to all entrepreneurs. Entrepreneurs apply to us with different requests. One needs to settle his rent problem, another - pricing, another - assistance in his/her relations with taxing bodies. And so on. Our legal department gave more than 150 individual consultations to entrepreneurs-members of the Association and partnership enterprises, sent more than 25 inquiries to law-making and executive agencies, made over 40 complaints, statements, and petitions, assisted more than 100 times in searching necessary legal documents.
Rent rates for one of Belarusian unitary production enterprise have been significantly reduced by our petition. We won a court case in Mogilev Region on abolition of a statement of Inspection of the Ministry of Taxes and Duties about bringing to account of one of individual entrepreneurs in the form of a fine and economic sanctions at the rate of more than Br. 19 million.
We rendered assistance to one of unitary enterprises on the issue of appealing a tender’s results - the results were declared invalid. We can count many other successive cases which are really good. Those persons who read Belarusian business press on the regular basis - in particular, “Belorusy I Rynok” (“Belarusians and Market”), “Torgovaya Gazeta” (“Trade Newspaper”), “Marketing, reklama, sbyt” (“Marketing, advertising and sale”) - knows about it from different publications.
The main task of our department - protection of rights and presentation of interests of entrepreneurs-members of MCAEE in state authorities and rendering legal assistance to partnership enterprises of the Association - i.e. activity that is treated in international judicial practice as “advocacy”.
