Abstract

This article on the example of the Russian legal system analyzes the features of the legislative structure of legal liability in the field of investment activity. The complex nature of investment legal relations and their exceptional economic importance for modern society invariably prompt the legislator to seek legal means for their proper provision and protection. Such a need is especially noticeable manifested in the conditions of an unstable economic system and economic crises. Using general scientific and private scientific research methods, relying on doctrinal and regulatory sources, as well as materials of legal practice, the author comes to the conclusion that the legislator as a whole lacks an understanding of liability in the relevant field and the legal technology for securing it. To solve this problem, the author proposes a set of specific legal actions for legislative and law enforcement agencies, major investors and formulates the main content of legal technology of securing liability for offenses in the investment sphere.
