Conference in London: International Dispute Resolution Involving Russian and CIS Companies


A major conference on Russia- and CIS-related Dispute resolution is taking place in London on 27-28 in Sofitel Hotel.

Disputes with Russian and CIS parties whether decided by arbitral tribunals or state courts – are notorious not only for the vast sizes of the claims but also for their complexity.

The shortcomings of the regional judicial systems, high number of mandatory norms in legislation and moreover difficulties with enforcement of the awards in Russia and CIS, demand specific skills and highly tailored resolution strategies. In addition ensuring successful cooperation with clients, who themselves sometimes provide inconsistent information, can often be a challenge in itself.

The organisers of the London conference plan to discuss these challenges by bringing together leading practitioners and academics in Sofitel Hotel.

Natalia Pavlova, Judge of The Supreme Commercial Court of the Russian Federation, Bernard Hanotiau, Noah Rubins, Dominic Pellew, Maxim Kulkov, David Goldberg and Dmitri Evseev will join other distinguished experts in London.

Conference panels will deal with mandatory norms and legal protectionism, trends in enforcement of foreign judgements, legal instruments for multiparty and multijurisdictional disputes, complexities of valuation of damages and other topics.

CIS Arbitration Forum is the media partner of this event.
