DLA Piper has successfully represented Gett in a dispute with the Moscow Administrative Road Inspection. 

Gett is a technology platform focused on corporate ground transportation management.

According to DLA Piper, ”MADI filed a claim in May of 2020 with the intent of obliging Gett to constantly have to verify licenses of taxi fleets for the carriage of passengers in Moscow and the Moscow Region. Unlike other major aggregators, the parties failed to conclude an amicable agreement and, with the assistance of DLA Piper, Gett successfully defended its rights in the courts of three instances, as well as in the Russian Supreme Court.” 

According to the firm, “in its ruling, the Russian Supreme Court ultimately confirmed that so-called taxi aggregators are not bound by law to check that carriers are complying with statutory requirements, including licenses for taxi services. This case ends a long series of disputes with state authorities (such as the Russian Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing), and is key to the development of legal practices around allocating obligations and liability between state authorities, aggregators, and the service providers.”

DLA Piper’s team included Senior Associate Igor Arakelov.
