International arbitration at a crossroads: is there a coming backlash?

Julia Zhabina, Head of BD at Lidings, a leading law firm advising foreign businesses in Russia, will take part in a number of business initiatives during a visit to Saint-Petersburg.

At the invitation of Russo-British Chamber of Commerce Lidings will provide sponsorship support to a business breakfast with representatives of leading pharmaceutical companies in Russia. The event hosted by RBCC will take place on 27 June in the Kempinski hotel.

“For a number of years Lidings has been collaborating with RBCC and acting as a partner and sponsor of its main events. We support the format they are held in – an open dialogue between the government and business elite of both countries. Pharmaceutical is one of Lidings’ most rapidly developing practice areas. Expert specialization in the field encourages us to actively participate in initiatives such as the RBCC business breakfast”, comments Julia Zhabina.

Key topics for discussion will focus on challenges that the industry is now facing, including amendments proposed to the state legislation, regulatory initiatives review, and other issues high on the agenda.

On 28 June Julia Zhabina will attend the international arbitration conference in Saint-Petersburg hosted by the IBA. The conference, scheduled to take place at the magnificent Taleon Imperial Hotel of Russia’s “northern capital”, is presented by the IBA Arbitration Committee and supported by the IBA European Regional Forum.

The event traditionally gathers many representatives of the legal community – professionals in private practice in government and public bodies, in-house counsels, SME executives involved in international business activities, and academics.

Julia Zhabina: “IBA events invariably create a great platform for discussion and exchange of opinions between legal professionals from all over the world, arbitration conference in St. Petersburg being no exception. I also look forward to attending a reception for young lawyers on the eve of the conference, hosted by Young Arbitrators Stockholm (YAS).”
