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.
The Guide will be available as an electronic database and in print. It is based on a detailed and comprehensive profile/questionnaire developed in consultation with a stellar international Advisory Board comprising of leading arbitrators and practitioners.
At the first stage, the Guide will include profiles of arbitrators who are 45 or younger, as we understand that there is less information about them available to the market.
To be included in the Guide the person (i) must be either a Russian national or practice in Russia for at least 5 years (ii) have at least 5 years of experience as counsel (in-house or external) to parties in arbitration or at an arbitral institution or at least 3 appointments as an arbitrator, (iii) submit 2 recommendations from members of the Advisory Board or a letter of recommendation from an arbitral institution or pass an interview with a panel designated by the Advisory Board after the submission of the application.
The Guide is free and the applicants do not need to pay any fees to be listed.
