Event Details:

This is a must-attend conference for every Russian company that uses international arbitration to resolve disputes. Panelists include internationally renowned arbitrators and advocates from Russia and other major arbitration centers around the world. The focus will be on unique, practical—and highly effective—strategies for building and winning an international arbitration in today’s dynamic and complex international arena, whether the arbitration is conducted under institutional rules or ad hoc. For each phase of an international arbitration proceeding, the panelists, using creative visual presentations and demonstrations, will lay out key guidelines for inside counsel that are indispensable to the proper administration of the case, including:

• How to negotiate the best arbitration clause
• How to control costs with alternative fee arrangements
• How to choose the right arbitrators and handle complex disclosure issues
• How to influence, to your advantage, the timetable and structure of the arbitration
• How to obtain effective interim relief and even an early disposition of the arbitration where warranted
• How to prepare the best witness statements
• When to use or not use an expert
• The do’s and don’ts of effective cross-examination
• How to structure pre and post hearing submissions that the arbitrators will read and rely on
• An inside look at the deliberation process

The conference will be conducted from the Russian perspective, emphasizing particular elements of the Russian legal system and culture that can impact an international arbitration venued in another country and subject to foreign law.
