Efficient organization of claim-related work at the enterprises of fuel and energy sector

Andrey Zelenin, Head of Dispute Resolution practice at Lidings, spoke at a seminar dedicated to efficient organization of claim-related work at the enterprises of fuel and energy sector. The seminar, held at the Moscow Institute of Modern Business (MMBI), took place on 13 – 15 March.

The seminar brought together representatives of more than fifty companies from various regions of the country: oil and gas refineries, energy producers, and power suppliers.

Leading legal professionals practicing in the field of energy law and government officials – judges and staff of the Moscow City Arbitration Court and Supreme Commercial Court – joined the attendees to discuss key aspects of improving law enforcement practice. Lidings’ Partner Andrey Zelenin shared his experience of advising major energy and mining companies, and highlighted essentials in structuring relationship with companies operating in this industry sector.

The attendees touched upon various topics important for the Russian legal community including the significance of judicial precedent in Russia, problems related to taxation of large enterprises, and importance of carrying out legal analysis to elaborate preventive measures and avoid litigation. Andrey Zelenin devoted his presentation to the most efficient ways of organizing claim-related and litigation work, talked about circumventing the contractual terms on jurisdiction of a dispute, and litigating in multiple jurisdictions. Mr. Zelenin also provided an overview of Evernote, Getflow, and Dropbox – useful software applications that help legal professionals to simplify project management, delegate tasks, work with large volumes of information and optimize data synchronization.

Professional legal community throughout Russia has traditionally been very attentive to the problems of fuel and energy sector in the region, and the seminar held by MMBI has become one of the most representative events in terms of number of guests and speakers. Attendees expressed their desire to continue sharing knowledge through holding seminars that would invite prominent industry experts and leading legal advisors to contribute as speakers.
