    A chain of beauty stores filed a lawsuit against one of the clients of RVS to oblige him to enter a rental contract. The plaintiff had rented a premise that belonged to the defendant and tried to execute a priority right to enter a rental contract for a longer period. However, RVS lawyers managed to prove that the plaintiff failed to comply with the mandatory procedure of execution of a priority right to enter a rental contract for a longer period and therefore the premises at issue were let to a new tenant.
