ECHR

Everyone is entitled to the protection of one’s rights. If you have grounds to suspect a violation of your fundamental rights and your appeals to courts of the Russian Federation have not been successful, you may lodge an appeal with the European Court of Human Rights. But you have to remember that it hears only those appeals which fall under its jurisdiction and decides whether the rights endorsed by the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms are violated. The court has jurisdiction over all member states of the Council of Europe, which have ratified the Convention. Its judgments are mandatory or otherwise a member state risks losing its membership in the Council of Europe.

You cannot do without professional aid in drawing up an appeal, due to the numerous requirements and nuances which must be observed to achieve the appeal’s consideration. Our jurists will analyze available materials and proof in your case and say whether the case is eligible for hearing at the European Court in Strasbourg. There should be weighty grounds for filing the appeal. First of all, you have to prove that you have appealed to national courts for the protection of your rights, but were denied the restoration of violated rights. It is important that a period of less than six months passes since the announcement of the final judgment. There also must be a well validated connection between the events and violations of your rights supported with references to constitutional provisions.

You will receive any consultations regarding peculiarities of case hearings at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. We will help you understand provisions of the Convention and its numerous protocols in regards to your situation. Then we will correctly formulate an appeal in the acceptable form, file it, represent your interests during its consideration and control the enforcement of the decision.
