Lidings Supports the 2014 ABA’s Dispute Resolution Conference as Strategic Partner

Lidings will act as the strategic partner of the ABA’s sixth annual conference on the resolution of CIS-related business disputes. The conference will be held on 19 September 2014 at the Radisson Royal hotel in Moscow. The conference will traditionally bring together leading experts in the field of international arbitration and dispute resolution from a wide range of jurisdictions worldwide.

For several years the ABA conference creates a unique platform for communication between lawyers from many countries. The list of key speakers includes Russian and American judicial authorities, arbitrators of international arbitration institutions, legal experts representing prominent Russian and international law firms, and in-house corporate counsels.

Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution practice at Lidings Andrey Zelenin will chair the conference session entitled “The New Russian IP Court: Taking Stock One Year On”. In this panel Russian and international experts will discuss the IP Court’s place within the Russian court system, its competence, rules of procedure and first case statistics. Speakers will also touch upon disputes involving foreign companies, use of technology and innovation, collaboration with industry experts and foreign consultants, as well as the Court’s general impact on the IP disputes landscape in Russia.

The panel chaired by Andrey Zelenin will consist of remarkable speakers including Alexey Bolshakov of BASF, Anton Pushkov of the Intellectual Property Center at the Skolkovo foundation, Bruce A. McDonald of Buchanan Ingersoll and Rooney PC in Washington, and the representative of the Intellectual Property Court Dmitry Afanasiev.
