Lidings Supports the British-Russian Law Association Seminar in London


Partner, Нead of Dispute Resolution practice at Lidings Andrey Zelenin will speak at the Seminar entitled “Sanctions 1 year on – A review of practical issues and challenges that have arisen over the past year” in London. The event scheduled to take place in the British capital on the 30th of June 2015 will be jointly organized by two member firms of the British-Russian Law Association – Lidings and Withers LLP.

Representatives of the co-organizing firms will discuss practical aspects of sanctions and the way they have affected the business communities in Russia and the UK. Topics for discussion will include: KYC checks, obtaining approvals to act for designated persons, receiving payment from designated individuals for fees, disbursements and arbitral fees, complications that clients have had in obtaining funding for transactions because of sanctions compliance by banks, obtaining guidance from relevant authorities about the interpretation and application of sanctions. In addition to that experts will discuss challenging sanctions and force majeure. Andrey Zelenin, a prominent Russian expert in the field of dispute resolution and international arbitration will share his views on the topic with the audience and touch upon the practical issues his practice faced in connection with the imposed sanctions in the past year. The seminar will be followed by a summer drinks reception.

The BRLA was established in 1992 as the successor to the British-Soviet Law Association following the break-up of the Soviet Union. The BRLA’s objectives include strengthening links between the legal professions in the UK and the Russian Federation and providing a networking forum for lawyers, businessmen and anyone with an interest in developing Russo-British contacts and business. Lidings has actively collaborated with the Association over the past several years, and has become its official member in 2014.
