Lidings will support this year’s Willem C. Vis Moot by sponsoring the Moscow pre-moot scheduled to take place on 14-15 March 2015. The firm’s partner Stepan Guzey will also speak at the Discussion “Emergency Proceedings in International Arbitration” which will take place on the eve of the pre-moot (13 March 2015).

The event is organized annually specifically for participants of Willem C. Vis Moot. It is designed to give the participants an opportunity to address their questions arising out of particular edition of the Willem C. Vis Problem to the experts. This is an interactive event with a panel of speakers on one side and prepared audience – participants of Willem C. Vis Moot – on the other.

Every year the event takes together very distinguished speakers and receives a great appreciation from Vis Moot participants. This year’s participants will hear, inter alia, about the emergency proceedings under the ICC Rules and in general, including, e.g. on jurisdiction of the emergency arbitrator and on the criteria for granting the emergency measures. The discussion will traditionally include review of a mock case.

“I will be speaking on Interim measures in support of arbitration in Russia and hope that my contribution to the discussion and Moscow Pre-Moot would be beneficial for the students taking part at the event”, Stepan Guzey comments. Moscow Discussion speakers will also include Baruch Baigel (Asserson Law Offices, London, author of The Emergency Arbitrator Procedure under the 2012 ICC Rules: A Juridical Analysis) and Christian Aschauer (Andreas Reiner & Partners, Vienna, author of Use of the ICC Emergency Arbitrator to Protect the Arbitral Proceedings).
