Recent changes to Russian law have caused a degree of uncertainty amongst clients as to what they can and cannot do when transacting with Russian parties or in transactions involving Russian entities. This is particularly true surrounding the dispute resolution and governing law clauses that they can agree to.
Our first Guide to Dispute Resolution and Governing Law in Russia provides a concise and accessible overview of some of the practical issues involving both litigation and arbitration across the region to help our clients understand the ways in which Russian law restricts the choice of law in contracts and the types of dispute resolution mechanisms that can be used for Russia-related commercial contracts.
This Guide will help clients to understand:
- what restrictions apply and when;
- what works and what does not for certain types of contracts;
- traps to avoid; and
- practical drafting solutions.
We have also produced a podcast discussing the background to the Guide and giving an overview of the content, which can be found here.
The Guide has been compiled by our Russia-focused disputes specialists, led by Alexei Panich, Nicholas Peacock, Maria Dolotova, Elena Zimovchenko and Olga Dementyeva.
