Lidings’ Partner Andrey Zelenin speaks at the ILN conference in Washington, DC

Washington, USA –  17-20 May 2012

Head of Dispute Resolution practice at Lidings Andrey Zelenin attended the annual meeting of ILN – an international network of legal professionals. The meeting was held in Washington, DC on 17-20 May.

In his presentation Mr. Zelenin addressed today’s topical subject – Russia’s accession to the World Trade Organization. While on 1 June 2012 the State Duma held parliamentary hearings on the ratification of documents on Russia’s accession to the WTO, the international business community has been actively debating the pros and cons of the news that has already received a status of the main economical and political event of the year. During his presentation Andrey Zelenin spoke about the history of relationship between Russia and the WTO, touched upon key aspects of the upcoming accession and its potential impact on local and international businesses.

The annual ILN events traditionally gather representatives of the legal community from 66 countries all over the world, who take this opportunity to share professional experience, develop and strengthen business relationships with colleagues from different jurisdictions. This year’s conference in Washington became the twenty fourth event of its kind – the organization will celebrate a quarter of a century since its establishment at the meeting in London in May next year.

Lidings had joined ILN in 2007 as part of the firm’s strategic development in the role of legal advisor to foreign businesses in Russia. As the only law firm representing the Russian capital in the network Lidings actively collaborates with ILN members from other countries which enables the firm’s clients to gain direct access to legal experts all over the world.
