Following the success of the second Russian Law Week in London and English Law Week 2013 in Moscow, the Bar Council in partnership with the Federal Chamber of Lawyers of the Russian Federation, the Moscow Chamber of Advocates, the St Petersburg Chamber of Advocates, the British Russian Law Association, and the Anglo-Russian Law Association is holding the third Russian Law Week in London from 1 to 3 December 2014.
Russian Law Week 2014 will bring together Russian and UK legal academics and lawyers to promote legal links and business between the two countries. It is a fantastic opportunity for barristers to meet with Russian lawyers and UK solicitors with an interest in Russia and the CIS to discuss current trends in legal services in Russia and England and Wales. The event is expected to attract over 150 English and Russian lawyers working in the UK and Russia.
The conference includes high profile panel discussions chaired by well-known legal experts including judges, academics and lawyers focusing on the following areas:
· Investment climate in Russia,
· Changes to the Russian Civil Code,
· Merger of the Supreme Court and the High Arbitrazh Court of the Russian Federation,
· Arbitration in Russia, and
· Enforcement of foreign arbitral awards and court judgements in Russia and relevant offshore jurisdictions.
