English Law Week 2011 in Moscow

Russian parties often chose English law to govern their transactions and disputes and the number of Russia-related arbitrations has been growing at the London-based LCIA. Between 27-29 June UK lawyers will have an opportunity to promote themselves on the Russian market.

The Bar Council and the Law Society of England and Wales in partnership with the British-Russian Law Association (BRLA) and the Anglo-Russian Law Association (ARLA) will promote English law and legal system during English Law Week in Moscow in June.

The events will be held in conjunction with the Lord Mayor’s visit to Moscow. The UK Ambassador to Russia and Minister of Justice of the Russian Federation will address participants of the English Law Week.

The programme will cover dispute resolution, including litigation in English courts and arbitration, transactional law and the current regulatory environment.
