Highlights of the 2013 Moscow Dispute Resolution Conference held by the ABA

Lidings supported the ABA’s fifth annual conference on the resolution of CIS-related business disputes. The conference, held on the 27th of September 2013 at the Radisson Royal hotel in Moscow, brought together leading experts in the field of international arbitration and dispute resolution from a wide range of jurisdictions worldwide.
For several years, the ABA conference has created a unique platform for communication between lawyers from many different countries. The list of key speakers includes Russian and American judicial authorities, arbitrators from international arbitration institutions, legal experts representing prominent Russian and international law firms, and in-house corporate counsels.
Partner and Head of Dispute Resolution practice at Lidings Andrey Zelenin chaired the conference session entitled “Getting Paid: a Practical Session for Creditors and their Counsel”. In this panel, Russian and international experts discussed how the collection mechanism works in Russia, suggested ways to increase its efficiency, and compared the current situations in Russia, Ukraine and the UK.
“The conference undoubtedly turned out to be very successful. Every year we observe growing interest toward the event from the professional legal community, and the attendance is great”, comments Andrey Zelenin. “As for our session, it was good to receive a question from the representative of the Supreme Commercial Court about the steps that need to be taken by the state authorities to improve the debt collection process in Russia. It's this kind of vital question and the comprehensive answer that followed it that demonstrate the importance of the conference. It brings together legal professionals and state regulators, creates a platform for dialogue between the two, and ultimately facilitates the improvement of the Russian legal realm”.
The conference was followed by an evening reception at Spaso House, the residence of American ambassadors in Moscow since the establishment of diplomatic relations between the United States and the former Soviet Union in 1933.
