We are thrilled to announce that on 9 September we will be launching the Russian Arbitrators Guide: Next Generation. This is the first comprehensive guide to the under-45 arbitrators with significant experience of handling and resolving Russia-related disputes. The Guide covers professional affiliations, education, procedural preferences of the participants, as well as examples of cases they handled.
The Guide will include profiles of 85 lawyers practicing or practiced in 10 jurisdictions who speak and can handle arbitrations in, among others, Russian, Ukrainian, English, German, Italian, French and Spanish languages. More than half of the lawyers profiled in the Guide already have experience acting as arbitrators.
Apart from this web-site, a print version of the Guide will be available for purchase.
We are grateful to the general sponsor of the initiative – Monastyrsky, Zyuba, Stepanov & Partners and Baker Botts, Dentons, Egorov Puginsky, Afanasiev & Partners, Morgan Lewis for their financial support, and to Legal Insight – the publisher of the guide. Creation of the Guide would have been impossible without assistance from the members of the Advisory Board - experienced lawyers and arbitrators. Nor would the Guide be possible without the tireless work of Alisa Protasova and Alexey Slashchilin – the Guide’s Coordinators.
Marina Akchurina, Denis Almakaev, Izabella Kharlamova, Olga Tsvetkova, Sergey Usoskin
Due to high demand of candidates and following their requests we have extended the deadline for submission of applications for this issue of the Guide until 15 May 2021. Please note that the extension is made on a single occasion and 15 May 2021 is an ultimate final deadline.
We are looking forward to seeing your applications!
We are happy to announce that we are accepting submissions for the Next Generation of Russian Arbitrators Guide (“Guide”). To be considered please submit your applications and any recommendations (if any) by 22 April 2021.
The Guide seeks to equip users – arbitral institutions, law firms and in-house counsel – with comprehensive information about potential arbitrators with specific expertise in Russia-related cases. Choosing an arbitrator is one of the most important decisions in the course of an arbitration and we aim to ensure that in making this decision the users consider the full range of options, as well as information about experience, industry expertise and procedural preferences of the potential arbitrators.
