International business conducted by Russian and the CIS companies – joint ventures, fundraising, investment projects – is governed by specific contracts and agreements. The consequences of possible violations of such contracts and agreements raise many questions, both from in-house counsel and external legal advisers. Concepts that are extensively used in foreign legal systems could be still unfamiliar to regional practices, but yet may significantly affect the activities of Russian and CIS companies. Issues and questions about contractual liability and good business practices can cause excessive caution and uncertainty when dealing with cross-border business. The practice of dispute resolution in international arbitration and foreign state courts can explain the real consequences of the specific violations and identify practical risks.
The 3rd C5’s forum on International Disputes Resolution involving Russian and CIS Companies will again focus on the practical issues faced by in-house counsel and external legal advisers involved in cross-border dispute resolution. Among leading experts who will discuss the specific issues associated with cases involving Russian and CIS parties, Maria Hauser, Counsel of the ICC International Court of Arbitration, will provide insight on “Party Autonomy vs Tribunal’s Power to Manage the Procedure”.
