Lidings Supports Annual Contest “Best Russian In-House Counsel”

The fifth annual award ceremony «Best Russian In-House Counsel 2013» will take place on October 26th in Moscow. The ceremony is hosted by a popular legal magazine «Company’s Lawyer» and is aimed at enabling the country's lawyers to test their skills and compete for the prestigious title by presenting their cases with solutions to challenging legal problems.

Every year since the establishment of the award the organizing committee invites Lidings’ Partner Tatiana Bicheva to act as an expert and help determine the winners. The panel of judges traditionally includes leading representatives of Russia’s professional legal community: heads of the legal departments of the country’s largest companies and enterprises, partners at leading national law firms, representatives of judicial authorities and renowned legal scholars.

The award was first introduced in 2009 and immediately became a high profile event for the representatives of Russia’s legal community creating a great platform for communication between seasoned in-house counsels and increasingly ambitious up and coming professionals.

This year over 5000 lawyers from all over Russia took part in the contest. The judges based their decisions on complexity of the problems presented in each case and the practicality of solutions suggested by the contenders. The vote that lasted nearly two months determined three lucky winners who will receive the titles and accompanying cash prizes this week.

Sergey Kislov, senior associate at Lidings’ dispute resolution practice, will represent the firm at the award ceremony on the 26th of October. “I find this to be a great initiative that deserves all the support it receives from the professional legal community. The competition offers the best representatives of the legal profession a unique opportunity to showcase their expertise and gain peer recognition", - Sergey commented.
