International conference

25-26 May

09:00-12:30

On 25-26 May 2021, CIS Arbitration Forum will bring together leading practitioners, academics and arbitrators to discuss some of the most challenging problems which lawyers face in disputes related to Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other countries of the CIS region.

Four panels will feature recognised experts presenting their views and answering questions from the audience.

The conference is an opportunity to stay on top of the most recent developments related to the region, to establish new connections and demonstrate expertise.

Topics discussed

The first panel will feature practitioners from several jurisdictions who will give an update on the most recent legislative changes and trends related to commercial and investor-state arbitration and court practice involving foreign parties.

The second panel will examine Soviet and intra-CIS BITs, an often unexplored opportunity which the parties are increasingly using to establish jurisdiction of tribunals.

The topics discussed will include the application of Soviet BITs to former Soviet Republics, arbitration under Eurasian Economic Community treaties, the applicability of the Energy Charter Treaty to intra-CIS disputes.

The third panel will focus on sanctions how they affect dispute resolution in international arbitration and domestic proceedings.

The fourth panel will discuss law and practice related to the enforcement of foreign arbitral awards and judgments in key jurisdictions.
