Sanctions and external political pressure have resulted in decreased interest in “going West” for many Russian businesses. Some of them have already faced the inconvenience of paying arbitration fees in Europe. Unsurprisingly, Russian businesses are now increasingly looking towards neutral venues to resolve their disputes.

Can Hong Kong fill this niche and compete with the European venues traditionally preferred by Russian parties? Does Hong Kong address all of the current needs and meet the requirements of Russian businesses?

Egorov Puginsky Afanasiev and Partners, together with Hong Kong International Arbitration Center and Hong Kong law firm Deacons, will provide Russian users with insights into international arbitration in Hong Kong, discuss its competitive edge, and cover the recent developments in Hong Kong’s legal system.

Specific topics to be addressed include*:

  • Benefits of Hong Kong as a forum for Russian Parties
  • What should be included in an arbitration clause to avoid unpleasant surprises?
  • How have recent legal developments influenced arbitration in Hong Kong?
