New Russian Legislation on Corporate Disputes: Scope of Application and Possible Implications

Paris, France, • English

The objective of this conference is to discuss recent developments in international arbitration in Russia with regard to the uncertainty of the arbitrability of corporate disputes under the new legislation and its implications for international arbitration in general.

Description

In July 2015, the Russian Parliament adopted two laws : № 382-FZ “On Arbitration in the Russian Federation” , which applies to domestic arbitrations, and the Federal Law № 409-FZ  “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation”, introducing significant changes with regard to the arbitrability of corporates disputes by distinguishing separate categories of arbitrable and not arbitrable disputes. Despite the undisputed positive move for international arbitration in Russia, the two laws raise issues with regard to the clear delimitation between these categories in view of further enforceability of the rendered awards. This is namely the case in the famous Novolipetsk Still Mill (NLMK) v. Nikolay Maksimov case. The discussion will be focused on the scope of application of these laws, the main problematics they raise and possible solutions.

Who should attend?
Students, practitioners, arbitrators with focus in  arbitration in Russia and CIS, Central and Eastern Europe.
